Children watching TV is a kind of early education activities, but when they are young, parents should pay attention to protect their children’s physical and mental health. So what should parents pay attention to when they watch TV?
Of course, 1-year-old children will also care about TV, but they are afraid that their eyes (eye food) will only be bright when pictures such as “cake” and “puppy” appear. But the two-year-old is different. He is quite familiar with what program he has at any time and which button he should press. Moreover, there is a considerable degree of reaction to the content of TV, sometimes it is unclear whether he can really understand it.
What parents should pay attention to
With regard to the influence of television, basically from the age of 2, the following are the precautions for parents:
(1) time and distance
Children can only watch TV for 30 minutes at most; if they watch TV for too long, it is not good for their eyes, so they must have a rest after 30 minutes.
In addition, the child’s seat is slightly higher than the TV position, and the distance is about 8 times longer than the diagonal of the picture. The indoor light should not be too dark or too bright compared with the picture.
(2) effect of time allocation
The 2-year-old likes to be regular in everything. If the time for watching TV is allocated, he will be the happiest to watch his favorite program in a fixed time. He is as interested in familiar programs as he is in meeting his good friends. This is the best time for children to develop abstinence habits.
The normal time of children’s (children’s food) program is just the busiest time for the mother. Let the child enjoy the TV program alone. Programs like rhythmic and sports (sports food) can be easily imitated by the child. If there is time, parents are expected to accompany the child as much as possible to enjoy and create some common topics between parents and children.
(3) don’t worry about children’s imitation
Children between the ages of 2 and 5 are the most likely to imitate. Of course, TV programs are also among them. However, most children aged 2 will not be affected by the content of the program, and will only imitate simple words or actions, so don’t worry too much.
It’s better to worry about whether adults’ behavior or speech will affect children’s development than that TV will affect children. However, it’s better to choose programs suitable for children as much as possible.
(4) impact programs
TV programs that are not suitable for children to watch refer to those that are full of impact, such as some cruel, aggressive, frightening or disturbing pictures, which are easy to cause children’s sleeplessness, night terrors, loss of appetite and other phenomena.
Because children’s understanding is not enough, they often take these pictures as true; therefore, if children want to watch these exciting programs, adults are better to accompany them, and grasp their hands to reduce their uneasiness. After watching them, they should explain them carefully.
(5) prevention of TV children (children’s food)
The so-called “TV children” are just children who watch TV for a long time. In fact, it is not only a matter of time, but also the degree of TV’s influence on children. Children watch TV all day long and regard it as a good friend, which will make children divorced from society in their growth and learning.
Because TV is a machine, it can’t understand children’s mind, and can’t talk to each other, so children can’t really absorb knowledge and cultivate feelings.
However, a 2-year-old is a good explorer. If adults make proper arrangements, children still have a strong interest in activities other than TV.
(6) the influence of TV advertisements on teenagers (juvenile food)
Since there is TV, the influence of TV advertisement on teenagers has become the focus of social attention and great controversy.
Many children have a strong interest in advertising. When they hear the sound of advertising, they run to the TV to watch it. They will recite some advertising words, happy and babbling to adults.
There are two reasons why TV advertisements can attract children’s attention: one is that they are broadcast again and again almost tenaciously, which has left a deep impression on children’s mind; the other is that they are concise and direct.
Of course, if we want to see these two characteristics alone, it is not necessarily only television, but also radio and newspaper advertisements. But in contrast, TV is more special. In addition to its greater influence on children than radio and newspaper, the main reason is that its expression method is to use the visual and sound effects of the picture to express. The characteristic of such TV advertisement is that it uses repeated insertions, direct pictures and charming music effects to directly impress children and make children model things The ability of formal cognition can be expanded.
It’s true that TV commercials are no longer than five minutes long, and only five seconds short. In such a short period of time, how can we most effectively reflect the characteristics of the goods and attract the attention of the audience? The advertising producers are thoroughly studying, and therefore, its carefully concentrated expression mode can hide the function of attracting children’s attention.
Therefore, children can watch some advertising programs properly, which is beneficial to their language development.

Parents can do an experiment: wash their faces, and then turn on the TV for an hour or two. After that, I looked at my face in the mirror, a little dark. Then wipe your face with a white wet towel, which will leave a layer of black. This is because the dust in the air is affected by the TV radiation and adheres to the face.
