    Is social media the sole reason for kids locking themselves up in their room these days?

    social media

    I’ve noticed how family convergence in the sitting room is quickly going into extinction. Despite that I had a playstation and personal computer while growing up, it was deemed disrespectful to remain in the room at night while everyone was in the sitting room.

    Mum would make us watch Yoruba movies with her and harness those moments to bark life lessons at us, citing the moral lessons in each movie we watched. Dad, on the other hand, would ask how school went, ask after our friends, and stuffs like that. You must go out to welcome him at the sound of his car horn.

    Today, you see kids whiling away on social media with the door to their room locked, not minding the presence of their father in the house. Not even the reality shows playing in the sitting rooms interest them anymore. How then will they bond with the rest of the family?

    Kids nowadays can stay in their room all day and would only come out to eat, then they go back inside.

    Being together in the sitting room is a great opportunity for family bonding. Some parents even allow locked doors in their houses. You can’t be my child and have your door locked. That’s privacy you won’t be privileged to have under my roof. You must come to the sitting room to bond with your siblings and your parents.

    What do you think guys? Is social media the sole reason for kids locking themselves up in their room these days?

      Yes. I think parents need to start monitoring them closely

      it depends though, we shouldn’t be blaming social media for every thing young people do these days, parents should involve their kids with fun activities that make the house lively

      With the advancement of the technology- the internet, children tend to explore to know many things that surround them. It is the duty of their parents to guide them on what to watch and what not to watch. Parenting guide is paramount here.
