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.
