Contes per anar amb compte (Tales for being Careful) / Marta Forns

Marta Forns / ESDAP Catalunya / Campus Serra i Abella

One of today’s main problems is children’s addiction to mobile phones. 92.4% of children have a mobile phone by the time they are 15 years old and this percentage is increasing in children of a lower age.

Bad management of the time they use the phone can cause physical problems such as obesity, insomnia and eye disorders. Some children can also become addicted to the phone, which causes a lack of interest in reading and in other matters.

The goal of this project is to raise awareness of these disorders and other situations that may arise, while informing and making children and their parents aware of the need for improvements in managing the time they spend with the mobile. We have also sought to encourage reading, an activity being replaced by the misuse of electronic gadgets.

"Contes per anar amb compte" (Tales for being Careful), is an illustrated printed book that is intended to help separate readers from their phone by demonstrating the consequences of its misuse. Five well-known folk tales have been taken to show the consequences for the main characters on account of misuse of the mobile and how they and their parents quarrel to solve the problems.
