Watching TV is a kind of entertainment used to in life. Watching TV properly can really release the pressure and relax the body and mind. However, if you watch TV without restraint, it will do more harm than good if you spend a lot of time watching TV.
Passive TV watching children’s parents are distracted
Parents should understand that “their own use of media tools (such as television) may have adverse consequences for their children,” the report said. “If you want to communicate with your kids, you have to turn off the TV,” said Ali brown, a Texas parenting expert who led the American Academy of pediatrics study. When people in the room focus on TV programs, the time of dialogue and communication will be reduced, which is not conducive to the development of children’s language ability and increases the difficulty of adapting to school life in the future.
The Daily Mail quoted the report as saying: “parents watching their favorite TV programs constitute a background environment for their children. The program attracts parents and reduces parent-child interaction, which may affect children’s learning of various skills from play. “
Some research shows that when children play, if they are playing TV programs nearby, they will reduce their playing time and distract their attention. Lisa Guernsey, an early education expert, said that when you work on TV, adults and preschoolers are distracted.
Free play is more beneficial to children’s brain
No matter for the purpose of early education or for the purpose of “laziness”, more and more parents let children watch TV or play computer, which makes children spend more time sitting in front of the screen than other activities such as outdoor games.
A survey of 1400 parents by common sense media, an American non-profit organization, found that children aged 8 and under spent nearly four times as much time watching TV as doing other activities. Their average daily time of watching TV was 1.44 hours, and their time of reading, listening to music and playing computer games was about half an hour.
Researchers in Canada and the United States have previously found that young children’s TV watching time affects their later academic, social and health status, and the longer they watch TV, the more “future problems” they suffer. Some parenting experts believe that free play is more beneficial to brain development than electronic media. In addition, watching TV before going to bed may reduce the sleep quality of young children.
Therefore, we suggest parents to turn off the TV, or even if they don’t watch it, it will affect their children’s language development, and no one wants their children to be fluent!
