Effects of modern technological progress on children

Not every parent can accept the fact that children are on a short leash with digital devices. Yet in the 90s, devices were not a toy; today the tendency is quite different. Most kids have a smartphone or a tab to play on. Some parents are still uncomfortable realizing that the child has a non-restricted access to technology.
Growing up with devices, children learn faster and socialize better. Contrary to the common view, social networks demolish communication barriers between kids. Children are getting used to easy communication, and they do not take socialization so seriously. Being accustomed to devices, children make themselves comfortable with the future, unlike their parents and grandparents.
But technology has a visible side effect we call sedentary lifestyle. Being overwhelmed with devices, kids get overweight and sometimes antisocial. Many parents complain about online addiction that developed in kids.
