As the family evolves, the children also develop certain habits which become part of their life from the young age. The current family setting is more into implementation of digital technology and it’s been misguided by the children due to lack of checking on the gadgets they’re using while they study or work. The responsibility as a family is very less as kids become smarter and cunning. The social responsibility in the digital age is very less as children are falling into big traps due to the advancement of technology. Technology can negatively affect children's developing social skills, relationships, health, and overall ability to focus in developing their social skills. This can lead to more being socially awkward, withdrawn, shy, or intimidated by social situations. The children opening more with the outside world is been seen as rise of problem. As family couldn’t be role models for them to open fully and show their emotions. The outside world is getting more influenced in the children world of connection. So as a social worker isn’t our responsibility to have a one-to-one conversation with our young minds to have a close relationship. Technology is having more control over the human emotions more than the family members and its role of protecting the child is lost somewhere. So as a society it’s our social action for the protection of child right from the unwanted digital interactions to personal relationship with the closed network of people. So, who is having more responsibility does the family or the digital world
