Amongst the world’s most famous names is Steve Jobs, the name super popular for the foundation of the most intellectual smartphone company Apple. Apple has created many outstanding gadgets till now which have always ruled the world of technology but did you all know that even the creator of Apple, Steve Job himself never allowed his children to use Iphones and Ipads? Here’s the reason why:
In 2014 journalist Nick Bilton recalled an incident in the magazine New York Times which stated his interview with the late CEO of Apple after the launch of first ever Ipad.
His frank question to Jobs was “So your kids must love the iPad?” to which he replied and shocked the media by saying that he never allowed his children to use Iphones and Ipad.
According to Jobs, these so called cool gadgets actually affect the mental state of a child and leaves him devoid of any creativity and imagination. Just think yourself, who would like to see his child lying on the bed and stuck on candy crush for hours instead of playing outside and increasing his physical, social and mental skills.
“My kids accuse me and my wife of being fascists and overly concerned about tech, and they say that none of their friends have the same rules… That’s because we have seen the dangers of technology firsthand. I’ve seen it in myself, I don’t want to see that happen to my kids.”
Therefore, it is an advice by Steve Jobs himself for all the parents to not to allow their children to use those fancy and expensive gadgets for their proper welfare. By not allowing his children to use smartphones will not make a parent rude or a fascist but more responsible towards his child’s health and care.
