Several researches have linked smart phone overuse with physical and psychological effects, like sleep disturbances, depression, anxiety and more.
Seeing the overuse of smartphones among parents, teenagers, young children, and even the toddlers, the students of Satya Bharti School Barrondi in Kurukshetra, Haryana decided to raise awareness in the community about the ill-effects of mobile phones.
The children conducted rallies in the village, where they visited homes to aware the family members on the warning signs of smartphone and internet overuse, its side effects, and self-help tips. They have also conducted street plays around the same.
