When it comes to mobile phones, tablet computers, televisions and other electronic products, what do you think of? For many parents, it may be a headache that children like to rely on these electronic products, so what should parents do to keep their children away from TV? Let’s talk about this article!
How to help children not stick to the TV
Setting rules first and speaking them out will reduce disputes and mischief. For example, we should discuss with our children on weekends what programs we can watch next week. The basic rules should stipulate that we can’t watch TV when we eat, we can’t watch when we haven’t done our homework well, or we have to do our homework when we see it.
If parents can participate in the interpretation process of TV programs, they will change the perspective of children’s watching TV. If they have full discussion with children, they will also weaken the influence of TV. Besides, don’t forget the advertisement. A study in the United States found that young children see 40000 advertisements a year, including many advertisements about calories and greasy junk food.
In fact, more and more parents are willing to buy or rent high-quality DVDs as their children’s teaching tools. For example, if you buy Educational DVDs and prepare high-quality storytelling or animation programs for your children, if they are used to watching them, they won’t quarrel to turn on the TV.
Since the TV set was put in the corner, it seems to occupy the most important place in the living room, but the latest trend has to push it to the most inconspicuous corner. The American shutdown alliance has been advocating: “hide your TV at home, even the remote control.”
Don’t put TV in the children’s room if you put TV in the children’s room, it will only alienate the children from other members of the family, and also affect homework and sleep. What’s worse, parents can’t see what programs the children watch.
Lead by example if you don’t want your children to watch TV, adults should do it by themselves, and communication with children will be more useful. Turn off the TV with your child, go out and take part in activities, and more importantly, increase the time you spend interacting with your family.
In a word, TV is harmful to children’s physical and mental health. Don’t let TV become a drug for children. Parents should set an example! If you want to know more about electric shock prevention for children at home, please continue to pay attention to the recent update of Baibai safety net.
