Many parents turn a blind eye to their children’s watching TV, which is inseparable from the powerful pacifying function brought by electronic products. But we must also face up to the great harm of TV to children. So, when parents meet a small “TV fan”, what is the most effective solution?
Children in the infant stage are like a piece of white paper. Their brain and body functions are in a rapid growth period, and their exploration of the external environment is in the stage. Therefore, any stimulation they can receive at this time is an important beginning for them to experience the external environment. During this period, we should provide children with a variety of rich stimulation to promote their cortical activity, so that their brain can get better development. TV has a large amount of information. Let children watch TV properly and accumulate TV experience will help children’s cognitive ability and intelligence development.
However, in real life, this often happens:
Some parents regard TV as their children’s “nanny” and “partner”: parents or their children’s day-to-day caregivers allow their children to watch TV for a long time and alone in order to let their children not pester themselves; in order to let their children eat, let their children eat while watching TV; do not screen the content of TV their children watch, let them watch it at will; or for their own sake TV program, let children watch the same TV with no choice
It is harmful to children’s physical and mental health to watch TV for a long time without choice:
First of all, in terms of health, the electromagnetic wave radiated by TV and the fast conversion of TV images are not conducive to the development of children’s vision and endocrine system.
Secondly, TV programs spread information through intuitive images, “watching TV” is a passive experience, so it is not conducive to exercise and improve children’s thinking ability.
Thirdly, from the psychological level, children can receive the content on TV without filtering, and then affect their behavior, language, thinking and attitude performance.
Finally, children tend to be very concentrated in watching TV and seldom speak, which affects their oral expression ability and social interaction ability.
How to guide children to watch TV correctly?
First of all, we should pay attention to watching TV:
·Children should watch TV no more than half an hour a day.
·The television should keep a certain distance from children, and the sound should also be a little lower.
·Due to the limited development of children’s vision, children before the age of 2 are not suitable for watching TV.
·When children watch TV, it’s best to turn on a small light beside them.
·Try not to let the children watch TV after supper.
·Train children to have correct posture and good habits when watching TV.
Secondly, parents should play an active role in the process of “children watching TV”
·Children first exist as a member of the family, and family style will affect children’s behavior and habits.
·We should carefully choose the content of the program for children and try to avoid bad scenes.
·It is very important to accompany and guide children to watch TV.
·Parents must have a correct view of leisure.
