Young people are fast getting addicted to social media. In fact, their world revolves around mobile phones and other gadgets. Yes, exposure is good, but addiction is not. Why are youngsters not investing their time in developing their skills? Parents can do a lot to help children cope with this situation. Mobiles and gadgets should be kept aside even as more family time is encouraged. Open discussions and fun times with family are essential. Children need to be listened to which will make them open up. This will help parents understand their mental state. Parents should also spend more time with them. Every creation is unique. We just have to find our special quality and enhance it. We might not be good at everything, but will definitely be good at something. Perfection can be achieved through hard work and dedication. Parents should stay connected with their children and mould them so that they become better human beings and responsible citizens.
