In the modern world where consumerism determines the social status of an individual, cell phones are made available to children very early in their life. Parents encourage children to use cell phones so that they can reach their children any time, any day. Mobiles also offer immense amount of educational materials which the children can access. While the motive might be good, it often causes unintended consequences. Apart from the health impacts already discussed, children get engrossed into something that is very solitary and independent. They tend to cut out all other external activities in life like playing outdoor games, interacting with people or even spending time with their parents. Naturally, they tend to become asocial and sometimes even antisocial. They fail miserably at group activities, sharing things with others or even simply interacting with others. As they rarely get opportunities to interact with others, feelings of selfishness and overt self- importance start creeping up from within. Their main mode of interaction becomes texting. The advantage with texting is that one can defer his response if he is in a bad state of mind and refrain from an ugly and impulsive reply. In a face to face interaction, however, this advantage is seldom available. A child, who has been using cell phone for communication a lot, often finds him incapable of replying spontaneously. His reactions are not only delayed but sometimes inappropriate as well. Since interpersonal communications are one of the most important traits of one’s personality, a child who has been using cell phone in his earlier days to replace emotional bonds also suffers from a stunted personality.
