In a strange incident, a mother of three-year-old son took her toddler to a counselor seeking help for his mobile addiction problem.
According to a reports of Time of India, the mother of the kid brought her three-year-old son to Mann Kaksh, a counselling centre at Bareilly district hospital and complained that her child was suffering from bed-wetting (enuresis) and needed help.
After counselling him, the doctor confirmed that the boy bed wets and avoids going to the bathroom as he doesn’t want to leave his mobile phone.
In an eye-opener for parents, Mann Kaksh has received 39 cases of children addicted to mobile phones in two months – most of them belonging to age group of 10 to 18 years, growing up in a virtual world of social media and video games.
As quoted further in the report, the concerned doctor told that “In majority of the cases, it came to light that parents provide mobile to their children at an early age to keep the kids busy so that their own work is not affected. This later becomes a cause of addiction and bad behaviour among children.”
