Many children have become addicted to gadgets. Addiction means you keep doing something even if you know it’s bad for you. For example, you keep playing video games or checking the messages, even when you know you should be sleeping or doing your homework.

Siswa yang menghabiskan banyak waktu online, lebih sulit berkonsentrasi di sekolah dan sulit berteman “dalam kehidupan nyata.” Padahal, anak-anak seusia kalian, otak, tubuh, dan keterampilan sosialnya masih berkembang. Yuk, lakukan hal-hal bermanfaat lainnya, ketimbang menghabiskan waktu dengan gadget!

Students who spend more time online, have more difficulties concentrating at school and making friends in real life. You know that children your age have brains, bodies and social skills that are still developing. Let’s do things that are more useful, rather than spending time on your gadgets!
