It’s no fault that children watch TV. After all, children can learn and benefit from some news and cartoons on TV. But being addicted to watching TV, or even addicted to it, is a headache for parents. So what’s the harm of children watching TV?

Watching TV is not conducive to developing intelligence

Doctors pointed out that parents need to be aware that TV can’t take on the role of baby sitter, and there are even many side effects:

Watching TV for a long time will damage children’s eyesight and hearing. The function of children’s body organs is not mature, and the strong light brought by TV will damage children’s vision; as for hearing, the sound intensity of normal people when talking is about 35 decibels, while the sound intensity of TV programs is often 90 decibels, and the sound intensity of songs in TV is as high as 118 decibels. It is difficult for preschool children to bear the long-term sound stimulation brought by TV.

Watching TV for a long time will have a bad effect on children’s brain development. People know objects because brain cells are stimulated repeatedly. However, it is difficult to repeatedly stimulate the brain cells of infants with TV pictures, which will make the brain nerves of infants produce abnormalities and learn little knowledge. In the long run, it’s hard to concentrate.

Watching TV for a long time will damage the relationship between parents and children and affect their social ability. Children before the age of 3 can’t understand TV, just curious about the sound and color of TV. In the “TV nanny” all the time “care”, children and parents lack of effective communication, in the long run, it is easy to develop a withdrawn character, more seriously, it may also produce problems such as autism. If not corrected as soon as possible, the adverse effects will continue to accompany children until they grow up.

Experts suggest that children under the age of one should never watch TV. 1-3 years old, watch TV twice a day, no more than 15 minutes each time. Preschool children should not watch more than one hour of TV every day! Parents should choose some cartoons and animal documentaries with strong knowledge, educational significance and slow light color change to show their children. Parents should communicate and discuss TV content with their children. Let children summarize the content of the story and play some classic plots in different roles, which will help improve their observation, memory, language expression, performance and creativity.
