The intensive proliferation of technology has become an irresistible dynamic, affecting virtually every aspect of the world, ranging from economies, societies and cultures as well as influencing the daily lives of individuals. Children are a not an exception as since the day a child is born, they are immersed in a continuous cycle of digital communication ranging from the manner their health care is managed until their photographs which are posted online on social media platforms to share memorable moments with friends and family. Hence, the more children develop in age; the capability of technology to influence their life will also develop.

Although information communication technology has eased the opportunity of distributing knowledge and collaborations with other people, it has also eased the opportunity to conduct and share sexual content and illegal material that harms and effects children negatively. Moreover, technology has increased the opportunity of child trafficking and triggered innovative ways in hiding such actions from the government and law. Furthermore, technology has caused the process of obtaining unsuitable content to be much easier and more surprisingly has caused children to conduct improper content on their own. Also, technology has initiated a new medium for children to be bullied; however, now on a much wider scale and hence causes increased negative effects. Furthermore, the online atmosphere and virtual entertainment applications have increased the creativity as well as the children’s opportunity to reach fulfilling content; however, it has also implied the aspect of screen addiction as well as digital dependency. Moreover, these platforms have increased the chance for children to express themselves and thoughts in a free manner; on the other hand, has also increased the circulation of negative speech and ideas that can affect how children encounter and deal with the surrounding environment. Certain effects that arise from the concept of digitalization are not agreed upon by all the people; however due to the rapid expansion in the industry of technology and the increased threats that arise on children there should be increased efforts to maintain the protection of children from the disadvantages of a world that is more virtually connected. There should be increased efforts from governments, global organizations, societies, families as well as children to prevent or decrease the effects of technology.

Similar to globalization and urbanization, the introduction of digitalization has substantially
affected and altered the world today. The intensive proliferation of technology has become an
irresistible dynamic, affecting virtually every aspect of the world, ranging from economies,
societies and cultures as well as influencing the daily lives of individuals. Children are a not an
exception as since the day a child is born, they are immersed in a continuous cycle of digital
communication ranging from the manner their health care is managed until their photographs
which are posted online on social media platforms to share memorable moments with friends and
family. Hence, the more children develop in age; the capability of technology to influence their
life will also develop.
Moreover, the introduction of technological devices and virtual interaction correspondingly
imposes evident dangers to the safety, confidentiality and overall welfare of children as well as
increases the effects and harmful situations that the majority of children encounter offline and
causes already existing susceptible youngsters to become more susceptible.
Although information communication technology has eased the opportunity of distributing
knowledge and collaborations with other people, it has also eased the opportunity to conduct and
share sexual content and illegal material that harms and effects children negatively. Moreover,
technology has increased the opportunity of child trafficking and triggered innovative ways in
hiding such actions from the government and law. Furthermore, technology has caused the
process of obtaining unsuitable content to be much easier and more surprisingly has caused
children to conduct improper content on their own. Also, technology has initiated a new medium
for children to be bullied; however, now on a much wider scale and hence causes increased
negative effects.
Furthermore, the online atmosphere and virtual entertainment applications have increased the
creativity as well as the children’s opportunity to reach fulfilling content; however, it has also
implied the aspect of screen addiction as well as digital dependency. Moreover, these platforms
have increased the chance for children to express themselves and thoughts in a free manner; on
the other hand, has also increased the circulation of negative speech and ideas that can affect
how children encounter and deal with the surrounding environment.
Certain effects that arise from the concept of digitalization are not agreed upon by all the people;
however due to the rapid expansion in the industry of technology and the increased threats that
arise on children there should be increased efforts to maintain the protection of children from the
disadvantages of a world that is more virtually connected. There should be increased efforts from
governments, global organizations, societies, families as well as children to prevent or decrease
the effects of technology.
