Gad­gets are every­where and they have long been a part of our lives. Nat­u­ral­ly, the child wants to be like an adult and spend some time with the phone. How to do the right thing in this case, par­ents — read in the post and do not for­get to like

Back in 2007, the Inter­net Devel­op­ment Foun­da­tion stud­ied the impact of the Inter­net on ado­les­cents and already 26% of ado­les­cents aged 11–16 were addict­ed to the net­work and gad­gets. Now this fig­ure is even high­er due to the avail­abil­i­ty of tech­nol­o­gy⠀

The eas­i­est thing you can do is keep your phone or tablet away from your child for as long as pos­si­ble. Up to 2–3 years old, it’s bet­ter not to give it to a baby at all, but does it real­ly work when you need to urgent­ly clean or cook, but you can’t calm down the child oth­er­wise. But if the baby already has a tech­nique, act accord­ing to the rules⠀

Free zone. Let him play or draw, but in his room or liv­ing room. In the kitchen, the phone will be super­flu­ous; you can’t take it to the toi­let with you either!

Lim­it­ed time. Doc­tors rec­om­mend that chil­dren 2–5 years old be allowed to use gad­gets for no more than an hour a day, for younger stu­dents — a cou­ple of hours

Per­son­al exam­ple. If you do not let go of the phone, it will be extreme­ly dif­fi­cult to explain to the child why he can­not do this. Excep­tion — you work from a phone or tablet⠀

Alter­na­tive. Maybe the kid wants a phone just out of bore­dom, offer to draw togeth­er, put togeth­er a puz­zle, play with the design­er⠀

Ben­e­fit. Do not be too cat­e­gor­i­cal, because you can install both dif­fer­ent games and a lot of use­ful things on your phone — sim­ple puz­zles, col­or­ing by num­bers, log­ic games and much more. Even read­ing and count­ing can be learned with the help of sev­er­al appli­ca­tions, so help your child choose what to install⠀

The worst thing you can do is take the gad­get with­out any expla­na­tion for an indef­i­nite peri­od. So you will get only aggres­sion in response. On our own, we also add that chil­dren who have Rac­coon are much less depen­dent on the phone.

Does your child use tech­nol­o­gy?
