Nowadays, TV has become a good helper for parents to care for their children. Children can even stare at the screen motionless for hours and enjoy watching all kinds of adult made children’s TV programs. But what Xiaobian wants to say today is don’t let TV become the “new nanny” of children. TV dependence is dangerous!
“Little fish, where are you going?” In the classroom of Nanning Red, yellow and blue parent-child kindergarten, angel, a 2-and-a-half-year-old girl, stands by the fish tank and talks to the fish alone. When Director Tan juping came to her and asked her, “where is the little fish?” Angie stopped talking and went to the corner of the classroom to stay quietly.
Little angel has autism symptoms. She hardly talks with other children. She likes to be alone, but she likes watching TV. She is also very interested in music. She can almost remember a song after listening it. Tan juping analyzed that the reason for her autism was her parents. Little angel’s parents are office workers, when the child was born soon, they entrusted the child to grandparents to take care of, and grandparents are more laissez faire children, in a very small time, little angel fell in love with TV. Until the child is 2 years old, Angie’s parents find that the child is in front of the TV all day long, does not love to talk, does not love activities, before they send her to kindergarten.
After the teacher’s education, little angel gradually accepted other children and began to talk. “Such a child needs special care from her parents, but at present, none of her parents can spare time to take care of her. It’s a pity.” Tan juping said.
Children watch TV every day
No more than 20 minutes
How long can children watch TV every day? Education experts agree that watching TV properly can stimulate children’s vision, hearing and language development, but 20 minutes is the most appropriate time. One hour before going to bed, children should be forbidden to watch TV. 1. From the age of 5, it is the sensitive period of children’s language development. In terms of children’s education, the interaction between parents and children, reading and listening to stories, each way is better than watching TV.
Watching TV too much will lead to the decline of children’s reading ability and creative thinking ability. Although there are forms of color, image and sound in TV, watching TV is a kind of passive experience, which will lead to children’s inattention and limit the development of their language ability. Secondly, the development of children’s vision is not stable. Watching TV all day long is easy to cause myopia.
It has been found that children’s brain will be in a sleep state after watching TV for more than half an hour. Children who often watch TV will affect their other activities because they stare at TV quietly all day, resulting in the consequences of not loving sports, not loving learning, not communicating with other children, etc.
What kind of program can I watch?
“My children like to read advertisements best. They read them all day.” “I’m worried that my son will get worse after watching cartoons with violent content.” If you want to watch TV, what can you watch? At present, parents have a lot of controversy about the content of the programs their children watch.
Advertisements and all kinds of cartoons can be watched a little. You can also watch more news, sports and humanities programs, and some TV plays full of violence and terror. It’s better not to watch them. However, when watching TV, it is better for parents to accompany them and explain to their children what is good and what is not, what children should do after watching, etc. Through correct teaching, let children learn the truth of life and work from TV.
Remind that when children watch TV, the distance from the TV should not be less than two meters. Parents should also pay attention to the brightness and sound of the TV, and do not let children watch TV in the dark.
How to save the TV baby?
Scenario 1: Cheng Cheng, a 1.5-year-old, likes watching TV, especially advertisements. When he finishes his dinner in the evening, Cheng Cheng will accompany his mother. When it comes to advertising time, Cheng Cheng will dance and learn from advertisements. If adults block the TV, Cheng Cheng is in a hurry, and he will cry.
Rescue method: after 1 year old, children’s vision, hearing and language systems are all developing, so they will especially like the color and sound of TV, but it’s not good to let children form the habit of watching TV from childhood.
At this time, parents have to set an example. If parents don’t watch TV, their children won’t have access to it. After supper, parents can go for a walk with their children. After a walk, they can tell stories to their children. If it’s time for children to watch TV, it’s better for parents to accompany them, explain the contents of TV to children, tell children where is right and wrong, enhance the interaction with children, and avoid the children’s attention being focused on TV all the time.
If children like watching cartoons, parents can also buy relevant books for children to see, so that children know that reading is better than watching TV, and they can also draw on books.
Mom’s experience: Min Min’s mom has encountered this problem. When she was one and a half years old, Min Min liked to watch SpongeBob. If children are not allowed to watch TV, they will be depressed. For this reason, Min Min’s mother specially went to buy SpongeBob’s books and came back. Every day after watching TV, Min Min took the books and explained to the child: “the SpongeBob on the TV, which is also in the books, you can watch it, and you can play games with them.” In addition to the explanation, Minmin’s mother also taught Minmin to draw pictures on it. Minmin felt that there were also things on TV and books, and she could talk and communicate with them (drawing pictures). Slowly, Min Min feels that TV is not so important, and her habit of watching TV has changed.
Scenario 2: he is only 2 years old this year, but he has learned to turn on the TV with the remote control. He stayed at least 4 hours in front of the TV every day, especially liked watching cartoons. After getting up in the morning and having dinner, he first went to the children’s channel, and then changed channels frequently. Every TV station had cartoons at which time, and he remembered them clearly every day. Grandpa and grandma can’t control it. They are very quiet every day when they watch TV. But when they turn off the TV, they quarrel every day.
Rescue method: children like Tian Tian are addicted to TV. In addition to reducing the time of watching TV, parents should also accompany their children more and try to divert their children’s attention from TV. How to distract children? Mom and dad have to think more: what can children do without watching TV? Play, of course. Mothers can teach their children to play origami, embroidery, handicrafts and housework. Fathers can teach their children to learn the use of various small tools, teach their children to play building blocks, take their children outdoors, and play games with other children. Don’t leave your children on TV because you are busy with your work.
Mom’s experience: Baby moms can also solve problems by diverting their children’s attention. Children’s channels on TV often have programs that teach children how to make hand tools. Baobab’s mother bought a lot of toys similar to those on TV programs and ordered her father to play for ten minutes before or after watching TV every day. If the father is not in, let Grandpa “go out”, while playing, while slowly reducing the time children watch TV.
Unconsciously, the baby’s TV watching time decreased.
Scenario 3: Sisi is 5 years old and begins to have his own ideas. Including TV series also learn to catch up to watch, often watched this episode, will catch up with the next episode. Slowly, think of watching TV time seems to be more than before.
Rescue method: for a sensible child, setting rules is the best way. When can I watch TV? What kind of TV programs can I watch? How to control the time of watching TV, studying and playing? Parents can negotiate with their children. Under the guidance of the parents, let the children weigh the advantages and disadvantages, they will make the right choice, do not force the TV off.
