Abstract

This study discusses the uses of smartphones on children that have a positive and negative impact on the development of children's social interaction. Today’s generation is also experienced significant lifestyle changes due to the influence of modern technology by today. Children in this century are less likely to interact with people around them because parents have revealed to children smartphones for daily use. This study aims to identify whether smartphones impact usage on social interactions over five years old and to identify the development of children's social interaction at home. This study case uses a qualitative method involving five respondents that involve parents of five years children at the University College of Yayasan Pahang Kindergarten. Data instruments will be applied such as interviews with parents or guardians of the children as a sample of the study and observation will be made while children are in the classroom. The researcher will record the results of the observations on the checklist provided. A predicted result of the study is smartphones will have a negative influence on children's social interactions. However, if the use of smartphones is restricted by parents can also have a positive effect on children.
