This amount of risk is tantamount to saying that our children are in the middle of a cyber-risk pandemic.   Children who play online games are exposed to cyberbullying at an early age affecting their overall well being in the future. It is either they would have a very low self-esteem or they would become a bully.      In the Philippines, about 73% or 7 out of 10 with ages 8-10 years old are exposed to cyber risk, according to the studies by DQ Institute, together with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Globe Telecom.

He advised parents not to let their children, age ten years old and below to use tablet and cellphones    “Children are using a lot of cellphones with internet. Cellphones have radiation . . . the penetration of radiation into the brain may be too strong for young children,” Dr. Tan said.    “If they have these history of seizure, they should avoid these. Try to use it minimally and consult a doctor for the prescription and dosage of medicine,” he added.    Dr. Tan explained that seizure has various causes that is why it is important for parents to consult a neurologist or a neuro pedia once a child lost consciousness, have uncontrollable body movements and symptoms of epilepsy.    He also advised parents and guardians to always be open to their children.    Meanwhile, Department of Health (DOH) spokesperson Asec.
