As soon as the baby watches TV, it’s quiet. I just take this opportunity to do housework. What’s the problem?

However, if you touch TV for a long time, it will lead to the slow development of language, the low ability to communicate with people, and the bad influence of being out of group with children. Even if you want to watch TV, you should watch it with your children as much as possible, share feelings and communicate with each other.
Netizen — trickle down Mom:
There is a baby one year old at home, who loves watching TV, especially advertisements.

Netizen Lei Lei Ma:
My son is 2 years old and 4 months old, but he likes watching violent scenes when he is young. For example, when he buys vegetables, he likes watching killing chickens and fish.
Answer: try to let the baby watch the slow-paced program, so that the baby has time to think about what he is watching and absorb the information. A large number of random actions, such as martial arts, adventure cartoon programs, will only confuse the baby. In addition, some studies show that children who watch violent scenes on TV are more likely to show aggressive behavior. We should also avoid scary programs and choose simple programs that emphasize interaction. It’s the best program to stimulate your baby to make a sound, speak, sing and dance.
Netizen Meng Meng Ma:
When the baby watches TV, he can’t turn his eyes on it. He can’t pull it. If he forcibly turns off the TV, he will cry and make noise.
Answer: Children’s infatuation with TV is due to the dull and inflexible way of life. Therefore, parents should use the method of transferring attention to stop their children’s adherence to TV. And in order to increase interest, let children more contact with other activities. When children feel that there are more interesting activities than TV, they will gradually get rid of the dependence on TV. Reading, exercise, games, outdoor activities, visiting relatives and friends, holiday tourism, etc. are all good ways to transfer children’s attention and cultivate their interests.
Netizen — Michelle’s mother:
Baby’s grandparents love watching TV. Baby is with them during the day, and now they watch TV together.
Answer: first, we need to communicate with the elderly so that they can understand the various disadvantages of watching TV. The elderly love their children. If we make it clear, we can deal with them naturally. Or when the old people watch TV, you and your children go to other rooms to play games and tell stories. When you and your children really play together, this attraction will be much greater than that of TV. Children are naturally most interested in games.
