Digital Second

In Greystones (Co. Wicklow, Irland) haben die Eltern beschlossen, ihren Kindern zu erzählen, dass es erst in den weiterführenden Schulen ein Smartphone gibt. God Save Ireland.

  1. In den USA gibt es seit einer ganzen Weile die Kampagne/Initiative "Wait Until 8th" [1]:

    "The Wait Until 8th pledge empowers parents to rally together to delay giving children a smartphone until at least 8th grade. By banding together, this will decrease the pressure felt by kids and parents alike over the kids having a smartphone.

    Smartphones are distracting and potentially dangerous for children yet are widespread in elementary and middle school because of unrealistic social pressure and expectations to have one.

    These devices are quickly changing childhood for children. Playing outdoors, spending time with friends, reading books and hanging out with family is happening a lot less to make room for hours of snap chatting, instagramming, and catching up on You Tube."
