One of YOUNGSTER’s Observations:



Modern mobil
e communication leads the world in all types of technology developments
and in today's world it has become the leading way of communication.



According to estimations over a Trillion US dollars are spent each year to establish
further growth and development

of this industry. Industry leader Apple (APPL) the
maker of iPad, iPhone and iPod has consistently used the word

revolutionary

to describe
its products. Apple's marketing strategy is established on the theme of creating "A
MOVEMENT", Apple now leads the w
orld in mobile gaming within it's devices. All this
has made "Smart mobile devices" (iPhones, Blackberry and Android platform phones)
with Wifi capability highly impulsive buys for younger children.



These devices are famous for their ability of having App
s (mobile applications), which
allows the ability to browse other programs and services. Facebook has quickly become
one of the most downloaded and used App on Smart Mobile Devices. This is alarming
especially for the parent of young children, as these mul
ti
-
Billion dollars organization are
investing more money than ever before to become fully mobile. This means children
today are using Facebook anywhere and everywhere, and not just on their computers.
Asides from Facebook, these devices are capable of acce
ssing any and all types of
explicit content such as music, pictures, and videos.




Parents should refrain from purchasing from such devices for young children, and also
educate themselves of their negative effects. Members of Jam'mat Ahmadiyya Canada
should

take serious and proactive measure to ensure the prevention of misusage of
such devices. In the past jam'mat members were encourage to keep their home desktop
computer in a visible part of their homes, where parents can easily monitor their
children's usa
ge. In this new era of mobile computing on iPhones, Blackberry(s), iPad(s)
and any such capable device, it is essential parents closely monitor their children's
usage.



Some simple steps can be taken to helps prevent the misuse of such devices.

o

These devi
ces come with the ability of being password protected, which allows
parent the ability to unlock the device only for the duration of the usage.

o

Most of these devices come with the ability to block different programs and
applications, and application such a
s Facebook should be blocked.

o

It should be common practice to use these devices in common areas of the
house with supervision. Also under no circumstances should children have the
device(s) password protected, which may preven
t parents to review the
device.

o

Under no circumstance should the children be allowed to sleep with these
devices. A common excused used by children is; they used such device(s) for
wake
-
up alarms, parent should make other arrangements for wake
-
up alarms.

o

Parents should make it a
habit to review their children's mobile devices, should
they chose to equip them with such devices.

o

Above all it essential that parent explain to their children why such supervision is
necessary and why we take preventa
tive steps to ensure their well
-
bein
g.

o

Though these devices have a number of useful element, the misuse of such
devices and usage of websites such as Facebook can have hazardous

implication
on young minds.



May Allah help and guide us in accomplishing this task. Ameen,
