Scientific research shows that the ability of human beings to receive information through vision is undoubtedly very powerful. A national public opinion survey in the United States found that people generally use television as the main source of new information. Then the nine effects of television on children’s psychology! Did you notice?
Nine effects of television on children’s psychology
1. Cognitive confusion of gender concept. If you watch the complicated love series for a long time, even if there are bad plots in it, it may cause this kind of consequences.
2 – Crazy idolatry. Improper behavior, such as excessive use of money to buy goods related to an idol, is caused by the love for the idol star.
3 – form a wrong view of money consumption. There are often advertisements in the middle of TV programs, which will also have an unexpected impact on children’s view of money and property rights. Because children don’t know what an advertisement is, they may listen to all the contents of the advertisement and ask their parents to buy unnecessary goods.
4 – violence and pornography. If parents can’t watch TV with their children, they may receive inappropriate violent or pornographic pictures. From the initial fear and fear, they will gradually accept, get used to and become numb. Finally, they will even imitate the language or actions. Therefore, it is quite reasonable for us to emphasize that “parents and children share the same vision”. At present, the reason for the emergence of the voice of TV or film rating is roughly the same.
5-The real and virtual concepts are vague. Some children are too young to judge the difference between the content of TV plots and real life. Once there was a media report that some children were injured because they imitated the movements of “Superman” flying, jumping and flying.
6 – lack of two-way communication. TV is a one-way communication tool. Children only receive information passively, even when they have no choice. If there is a long-term lack of two-way interaction, the children’s interpersonal relationship will be affected in the future.
7 – lack of time concept. Many of the so-called “remote control babies” only know how to sit on the sofa and change TV channels aimlessly every day. They don’t know how to choose and choose TV programs, and they don’t understand the importance of the concept of time.
8-affect normal work and rest. When addicted to the sound and light effects of TV programs, children’s normal life routine is easily disrupted. For example, watching TV while eating dinner, or watching TV while doing homework, which not only affects digestion and absorption and normal sleep, but also may affect the effect of learning.
9 – estrangement between parents and children. Parents and children watch TV together and communicate with each other from time to time, which is worth learning. But some families have more than one TV. If parents throw their children aside and run to watch the programs they are interested in, they will reduce the interaction between parents and children. Over time, the feelings of parents and children are naturally affected.
Three effects of TV on children’s physiology
1-childhood obesity. Children stick to the sofa in front of the TV all day, and eat some high calorie, high fat food from time to time. Not only lack of exercise, body shape, even basic physical health can not be guaranteed.
2-poor posture and vision. If you don’t pay attention to the posture and safety distance of watching TV, you will not only suffer from backache and backache in a long time, but also your eyesight will gradually decline.
3 – unexpected. Some TV programs are too horrible or bloody for children to watch. If the child has some diseases, such as heart disease, it may have an attack due to too much TV content stimulation.
Five points of attention in selecting high quality programs
1 – parents filter the program first. At present, the popularity of cable TV has been very high. Parents can preview the program in advance. Once they find the program that is not suitable for children to watch, they will turn off the relevant channels in time.
2 – refer to the programs recommended by relevant agencies. Many related groups, such as the early childhood education association and the next generation care and growth Committee, will recommend the list of TV programs suitable for children to watch. Parents can use the list as a reference.
3 – choose channels with low commerciality and strong public welfare. For example, CCTV children’s channel, science and technology education channel, many local TV stations will also set up corresponding channels for children, and parents can choose more such TV programs. In addition, we should pay more attention to the common cartoon programs. Not all cartoons are suitable for children.
4 – parents and children “see”. For children, watching TV together is the best way to use TV. In the process of watching, parents can adjust the program at any time, and change it in time in case of inappropriate violence, pornography and other pictures. At the same time, parents can also help explain the program, cultivate children’s correct values, and increase good interaction between parents and children.
5 – purchase excellent educational films. In addition to TV programs, parents can also choose high-quality films to watch at home with their children.
Seven key points of forming correct viewing habits
All good habits need to be developed slowly. Please pay more attention to the following 7 key points, as soon as possible to let children develop the right viewing habits.
1 – three rules. Parents can prescribe guidelines for children to use TV, and watch TV on the premise of not affecting the correct life and rest.
2 – plan outdoor activities. When it comes to holidays, parents should take their children to outdoor activities. Don’t let them stay in front of the TV all day, hurting themselves and their spirits.
3 – draw up a viewing schedule. It’s more effective than aimless watching to do a good watching plan in advance. For example, take one week as the unit first, and watch TV for no more than one hour every day (the number of post-school children can be increased to 2 hours / day), and make slight adjustment in case of holidays, which is limited to no more than 10 hours per week.
4-do not use it with one mind. Never let the baby develop the bad habit of eating while watching TV, which not only hinders the cultivation of concentration, but also has a bad effect on the digestion and absorption of the body.
5 – keep proper viewing distance, light and good posture. When watching TV, parents should pay attention to whether there is too much jumping and flickering in the TV picture, whether the ambient light is appropriate, whether the child maintains a good posture and the correct viewing distance. Generally speaking, the larger the TV screen, the farther the viewing distance should be. In addition, the eye’s line of sight should be higher than that of the TV. After watching TV for 30 minutes, it’s better to let the eye rest for a few minutes.
6 – try not to let children watch TV alone. Here again emphasizes the importance of “parent-child co viewing”. Parents should not let their children suffer from TV violence or pornography for the convenience of the moment.
7 – set an example. Teaching by words is not as good as teaching by oneself. Parents and children are requested to abide by the above rules and make the best demonstration for children.
It can be seen that regular watching TV will cause children’s vision loss, weight gain, irregular sleep, and easy to cause children’s character isolation and autism, which is very harmful to their physical and mental health.
