Pokémon Go: A Hazard for Teens!

ft-Pokemon

If you see a person running while constantly tapping their phone, it is likely they are catching a Pokémon.

Pokémon Go is the new sensation among teens and adults. It is the game everyone is talking about and playing.

But Why Am I Calling It A Hazard For Teens?

Because it is making kids forget the basic rules to follow while on a street. They run and run without looking where they are going. People crashed their cars and kids fell down or bumped into things due to this. A girl crossed a highway while playing Pokémon Go and was hit by a car. She rolled into theair before hitting the ground and suffered from multiple injuries. The girl and her mother blame this game for everything.

Now I know you must be thinking that the teen should have been responsible while crossing the road. But we all know how teens are. They are adventurous and reckless. They don’t fear much and there is no stopping them when they start playing games. They have to ace all the levels and be the best. The thrill and the adrenaline rush are enough to keep them going for hours and become unaware of their surroundings.

There is more you can do. When your kids are outside playing they can unknowingly go to unsafe neighborhoods or far off places. To prevent this you can keep a check on their location. If they go somewhere dangerous, you can have a talk with them. If they get into a bad situation, they can send you a panic alert for help.

So here is the thing, it all depends on how responsible they are. If they are the daredevil kind and get, you can simply get rid of the game. If not, you can let them play, but still keep some check and control in case they get into trouble unknowingly.
