Title of article: Study: Multitasking hinders youth social skills

Publication: CNN

Date of article: January 25th, 2012

Short summary:

Children spent most time on the apple video chat application. When children spend a lots
of time on gadget multitasking things, this will cause them to lack real communication with
people. However, in this article only talks about how girls who play with that stuff will lack social
communication. They did not say any things about boy's communication. Some professor say that
boy's communication development is more complicated than girls.

Issues :

How much time should children play the apple video chat application?

Do you agree that boy’s communication is more complicated than girls?

Should children stop playing the apple video chat application?


I think that children spending a lots of time playing the apple video chat application is not a good thing. Children need more time to communicate with real humans. Children who spend time with real people can improve their social communication.
