Nowadays, the major concern of parents is that smartphones are having an adverse impact on their children. Children are becoming obsessed using these mobile phones. This problem is not only faced by common people but also by a rich person like Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. He in one of his speech had admitted that he did not let his children use a cell phone until they were 14, and are very strict with them in the case of using smartphones even today.
1.Mobile for a certain time
“We often set a time after which there is no screen time and in their case, that helps them get to sleep at a reasonable hour,” he said in the interview with British tabloid Daily Mirror, of himself and his wife Melinda. He always wants his children to use these cell phones in a productive way like it would help them to do their projects and enrich them with a great amount of knowledge.
2. No Gadgets at dinner table
Bill Gates does not let his children use their mobile phones when they are at the dining table eating their meal. His children always complained about getting cell phones quite later than the children they were studying with. Gates has three children of age 20, 17 and 14.
3. No iPhone……..
Gates did not mention in the interview that which brand of mobile phone is used by his children but his wife Melinda confirmed that they were never allowed to use Apple products. When his children asked for the reason he simply explained to his kids that they should not invest money in the company of their competitors as their major wealth came from Windows technology so they should promote the same.
