A group of leading authors, educationalists and child-development experts is appealing to the government to set official guidelines on child screen usage. The group feels that without regulation of screen time, ample outdoor play and the supervision of caring adults, our children will suffer from greater physical and mental health disorders. Discuss your view on this. Is technology all bane and no boon? Is there really a need for a law to be set into place just for this? Is it too restrictive for children?
