Nowadays, TV has become a necessary household appliance for families, and research shows that if primary school students watch TV or computer for more than two hours every day, they are more likely to have problems in attention, social ability and emotional expression, and their academic performance is worse than other children. So how can we guide children to watch TV correctly?

Parents spend more time with their children and let them watch less TV

Children have strong curiosity to the outside world, strong desire for knowledge, high sensitivity, rapid mental development, and strong plasticity. Therefore, in this period of children, the care and guidance from all walks of life is particularly important to promote the development of children’s internal mental health and external communication ability.

TV is a window for children to know the outside world. The rich information provided by good TV programs can expand children’s knowledge, help them develop their intelligence and promote their mental health. However, it should be noted that the training of children to have a healthy psychology can not only rely on television, but also need the personal guidance of parents. It is suggested that parents should do a good job of supervision, let children watch TV for no more than 2 hours, and arrange rest time during this period to prevent children’s dependence on TV and TV autism, and enhance children’s self-control.

Modern social communication ability is becoming more and more important. If parents “hand over” their children to TV because they are busy, and let TV occupy children’s spare time for a long time, it is likely that children’s self thinking ability and hands-on ability will not be exercised. There will be an obvious idealized tendency in the understanding of reality and a sense of distance from reality, so that children will not be able to Good at communicating with others. Therefore, it is better for parents to arrange some time every day to accompany their children, guide them, bring them into real life, strengthen their practical ability and self thinking ability, and let them learn to communicate with others.

Protect your eyesight from a young age

TV always has a special attraction to children. Children’s self-control is not strong, so once they watch it vigorously, they will watch it without restraint and ignore the protection of their eyes. Li Yunchuan, chief ophthalmologist of Kunming No.1 People’s Hospital, reminded that parents should attach great importance to strictly control the time of children’s watching TV and help children form a healthy habit of using their eyes when they are young.

Most experts believe that: children under 1 year old should not watch TV; children under 2 years old should not exceed 20 minutes; children between 3 and 5 years old should not exceed 30 minutes; children between 6 and 9 years old should not exceed 60 minutes; children between 10 and 13 years old should not exceed 90 minutes; children over 13 years old should not exceed 120 minutes, and every 30 minutes should let their eyes rest for 10 minutes. Dr. Li said that the most sensitive area of vision in the eye is the macular area, which is the place where the light emitted by an object normally focuses on the retina after being refracted by the intraocular refractive system. The development of newborn macula lags behind other parts of the retina, and the development of pyramidal cells in the macula is not perfect, which makes the newborn’s vision low and lack of fixation ability. Therefore, the growth of young children should pay attention to the prevention of myopia, develop good use of eyes. At ordinary times, the posture of reading and writing should be correct, the time of watching TV and using computer should not be too long, and attention should be paid to the combination of work and rest.
