Schools are allowed to ban electronics

Apps use electronic voices to read stories aloud and encourage people to repeat them - however, expert Prof. Riedel criticizes: “Such apps can already animate linguistically - but the attachment behavior to parents, grandparents or other caregivers, which is essential for child language acquisition, is missing here. There is also a lack of correction of children's pronunciation errors and the explanation of new words. "

Children suffer from concentration problems caused by cell phones and TV

The LIFE study led by study leader Tanja Poulain made public in May 2018: Increased consumption of media also increases the risk of behavioral problems in 2- to 6-year-olds. The long-term study by Poulain's researchers at the University of Leipzig examined 527 children from Leipzig and the surrounding area.

Study author Poulain concluded:

"In our research, we found that preschool children who use their smartphones or computers on a daily basis have more behavioral problems such as hyperactivity and inattentiveness a year later than children who do not use these media."

BfS Institute warns: radiation damage is possible

Aside from the risk of developmental damage in children, the Federal Institute for Radiation Protection warns against the high-frequency electromagnetic radiation from cell phones. Its effects, especially for children, could not yet be foreseen. A study by the BfS, the so-called German Mobile Radio Research Program (DMF), examined between 2002 and 2008 the intensity of electromagnetic radiation at which biological effects arise.

Although the results remained below the standardized limit values, there were indications of biological effects. The BfS therefore advises adults and especially children to keep cell phone calls as short as possible, send SMS, use a headset and give preference to the landline network. The cell phone should be held to the ear and worn on the body as rarely as possible.

Consistently stick to the no to cell phones and set an example

Experts strongly recommend that the use of digital media must be made more conscious and trained. Parents and children are strongly advised to put the cell phone away not only at school, as in France, but also at home and to deal with their surroundings. According to studies, direct attention from caregivers alone promotes the optimal development of language, concentration and socially competent interaction.
