The overexposure of children to communication technologies is something that worries the couple formed by Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem, according to what the actress herself declared on the CBS Sunday Morning program, published by the Spanish newspaper El País.
The actress assured that this overexposure “especially affects the younger generation”, for which she feels “Too bad for those who are now teenagers.”
“It’s like the world is doing some sort of experiment with them. ‘Oh, let’s see, what happens if you expose a 12-year-old to so much technology?'” the actress said.
The couple, who have son Leo, 10, and Luna, 8, seem to agree They will not have social networks until they are 16 years old and that they will still have to be “much older” to have a cell phone.
“I think this protects mental health, but I feel like I’m in a minority,” complained Penélope Cruz, who nevertheless allows her children to watch cartoons and movies.
The actress does it because otherwise, she thinks, “there is no protection for them, for brains that are still developing and how that affects how they view each other, like everything about bullying and so many things that aren’t the childhood that we had,” she concluded.
Despite being one of the most prestigious Spanish actors in the world, for both Javier Bardem and his wife Penélope Cruz, their top priority is their children. On more than one occasion, both have reiterated that what they like most is being with their children to play or paint, one of the actor’s great hobbies since he was a child.
In one of Bardem’s most candid and intimate interviews for Esquire magazine, the Loving Pablo star confessed that until he was a father, he didn’t know what “unconditional love” was. “It’s incredible. They have us in their hands,” said the 52-year-old interpreter, who admitted that at home he spent hours playing with Penelope and their children.
“Spending two weeks away from home breaks my heart, but not just emotionally, but I have physical symptoms, ”he said. And it is that his idea was always to be a present father, something he could not enjoy when he was a child and try to be everything he wished his father would be state and prefers to raise his children himself.
