Abstract

The technological age we're in removes all the temporal and spatial boundaries of communication and continues to provide various opportunities and conveniences for us. However, in this digital age in which individuals face intense information flow every day along with these opportunities, the effectiveness and control power of means of communication also increase. In today's capitalist or modern social order, a child model whose mental processes in a consumption-oriented way, who fully gets hold of the control mechanism and acts as an adult is being created. Parent profile of modern order accepts this model and they expect their children to behave as adults. The aim of this study is to find solutions to problems children—who have increasingly become dependent on communication devices of the digital age—face in socializing, establishing realistic relationships, and getting included within the communicative action of a realistic world to guide and raise awareness within parents for developing new communicative methods and skills with the children who have almost become mechanized.
