The study confirms the importance of setting limits on access to technology from an early age.
Neuroscience research warns that electronic devices and video games often cause children to not learn to regulate their behavior during their development, generating overstimulation of the limbic system, which is in charge of emotional expression; promotes addiction and violent behavior.
The researcher of the Institute of Neurosciences, Julieta Ramos Loyo, of the University Center of Biological and Agricultural Sciences (CUCBA), University of Guadalajara (UdeG), stressed that the regulation of behavior occurs through the process of experience. So the lack of this daily mechanism (regulating children’s behavior) can affect emotional development in the adolescent stage, generating risky behaviors, according to the study called? Emotional regulation: effect of stress and personality disorders ?, by Dr. Julieta Ramos.
To avoid personality disorders and girls and boys and adolescents learn to regulate their emotions, parents must establish limits since they are babies. “When children do not have the discipline to do a task, to arrive on time or have no organization, team sports are very useful, where there is discipline, rules and social coexistence.”
