How to help your Children to get rid of gadgets and Television

In the modern World, our Children are easily get addicted to gadgets and television. They find very difficult to spend time without these gadgets. At times, they forget to eat, play with other children when they are in front of them. They just get themselves fixed in front electronic devices. If Parents tell them to go and play outside, they are not interested since they got tied up to these addicts. This will lead to lot of problems in future. They will not go along with others when they grow up, loose physical fitness as they are not playing outdoors and they will not get motivated in concentrating their studies.

In old golden days most of the people lived in a joint family. Therefore the Children growing in the joint family had many advantages. They share their thoughts with their Grandparents. The elders also engage them in many ways like telling stories and their own experience in life. They spent lot of time with Children and play with them. They take a walk with them outside. Unfortunately, today's kids missing all these experiences. Parents are always busy, hence they couldn't spend time with their kids.

During childhood, Parents try to feed their Children by showing them TV and gadgets. It’s one of the primary reason Kids getting addicted with gadgets and TV. This becomes the habit for the Children to watch television when they grow up. When Parents are busy, they ask the Children to watch TV to get them diverted. This is also one of the reasons they are getting their attention to TV.

As a Parent, we need to make some simple steps for our Children to help them to get rid of these impulsive habits.
  • We should first reduce watching TVs and try to spend time with our Children.
  • While feeding our kids we can tell stories or about the food they eat or show them something outside instead of sitting in front of any gadgets.
  • If they are too fond of watching the Television or playing in the gadgets we can reduce them gradually by fixing time limits in front of these devices.
  • We can encourage them to see good programs rather than surfing through the channels.
  • We can take them for a walk outside by explaining them the good things they admire outside.
  • Encourage them to read books.
  • Make them to help us in gardening so that they feel happy to be engaged with these activities.
  • We can play with them to spend our leisure time.
  • We can take them to different places , it helps them to expand their knowledge and know more about this World.
As parents we need to try our best for the kids to get rid of electronic gadgets and television, so that they can spend their time wisely. It helps them to be active always instead of sitting in one place and watching the Television or playing with gadgets. Let them enjoy the Real World.

Nice suggestions. I spend lots of outdoor play time with my grandson and he doesn't miss his gadgets. I make up stories for him and now he has started writing his own stories on his iPad -- at least it not just games and more games.

You are so right. Not just kids. Adults glue themselves to the TV as well and/or cell phones or computers. We go bowling twice a week and always someone asks for the TV to be turned on. We are bowling not watching TV. A lot of it can be blamed on lazy parenting as well. Using TV and gadgets as baby sitters.

Keep them busy. Not always easy, but very beneficial in the end.

Blame lies with the parents!

Hello, yes the children today are too involved with their gadgets. They should be playing outside more and doing different activities. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Christine Rains said...

Wonderful post! I try to make sure no gadgets are on for dinner every day, and that we sit as a family and talk. We're all voracious readers too. (Though that doesn't help with fitness!)

Christine said...

Good tips

It seems to be the trend in most young families with little children. Not an easy war to fight against.

Neesie said...

Interesting post... and I couldn't agree more.
My kids are adults now and thankfully both are really outdoor active people.
I hope you have a great week.

This is a great post and does make one think. My son is all grown up and married now but we set down ground rules when he was a kid about how much TV he could watch and electronic games, etc., homework before playtime. I saw a couple of young men walking through our favorite park recently (14 years I would say). They both had their faces glued to the screen of their phones. Pokemon my husband asked? Yes, was the answer. Their game had sent them into the gardens. Well, I thought, hopefully I said, maybe the 'seeds' are being sown for them to enjoy nature, and when the pokemon becomes passe, as they get older, maybe they will come out and enjoy the great outdoors. I live in hope!

Thankfully, there are a lot of kids in our neighborhood, so they all get together every day for outdoor play. It's quite nice! Though, when bad weather hits, it is hard to pry my kids away from their devices.

Good advice, but few parents are heeding it, I fear.

When I was a boy, my entertainment was the birds and nature. Also books. I miss those days sometimes :)

Thanks. Have reduced my boy's TV time and computer time. Lucky for him, as he likes to read and also likes to go outdoor

Well said. Sometimes I think the best time was during our childhood. I am the 70s kid, so 70s and 80s are the best. No computer and phone. Even tv, it would be few channels like TV1, TV2 and TV3. Haha. Not much to watch on tv then.

Yes. Must control our kids when come to gadgets. Balance with schools, extra activities, and sports.

Over here in my country, it has reached a dangerous level for the many kids who are addicted to gadgets. The silly parents saw no harm in keeping their babies and kids occupied & quiet without bothering them. Many grew up to play the violent games online where there is so much killing and fighting with enemies. The parents are paying for the price now. How sad!

eileeninmd said...

Hello, great advice! Parents should have their children involved with more outdoor activities. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Great points. TV has its place but it isn't everything. is it?

lina@women perspective said...

I had memorable childhood since there was no gadget that time.
