We live in a society where technology is everywhere and it is inevitable that we want to contact it or not. That's why children are increasingly interested in getting hold of this technology and want to experiment with it.
But there are more and more professionals who oppose the use of smart screens at a very early age because they are seeing that their use has a repercussion on the intellectual de development of boys and girls. So, what should you do if your child asks you to use your mobile or tablet?
If the child asks for my mobile or tablet, what do I do? In the first place it is necessary to clarify that the technological advance is
that one can hardly know the impact that it has in the future, because the studies of a few years ago contemplated a smaller use in technology (quantity and quality) of what it is now, so the conclusions that may have been reached so far start from very different situations than would probably be reached if we were to start a study with children now. That said, and considering that it is best to apply common sense according to the situation in which you find yourself, here are three aspects to consider: 1- The
over stimulation can saturate the brain to learn. This happens whatever the excess stimulus; we do not need to be in front of a screen.
In any case if you offer a game, to avoid over stimulation, try to go varying the offer you give when you see that your child disconnects. It is very easy that the child should not do anything actively so that the game advances and that the fact of not attending has no consequences.
If you offer a video and your child does not disconnect of what is happening (and therefore to make sense to watch the video), look for
short videos of less than 3 minutes, to make sure that you son sees an event of different and varied sequences. The less special effects the better, since the sequence does not repeat itself over and over again. 2- The motivation is a good ally. You can take advantage of that desire to have the device in your hands to ask for a condition before leaving it to you. Take advantage and ask him to do something that involves creativity. In this way you will have to manage to get what you want.
Ask for example that you recite a poem that you have learned, that you invent a game or look for what you can do while you are without your phone or tablet.
Having established this type of conditions to have the desired object in your hands will not only help you find different leisure options, but will also appease your desire to have it. 3- With the prohibition
of its use you will only get more interest. This is true in all cases, unless you manage to turn it around and make it simply lose interest in it.
It is best to preach by example . If you do not want to be interested, better not to see you interested and limit the use in front of the child.
Technology is everywhere, and the best thing is that if you have interest, you can offer la the possibility of contacting her pues, because if she does not get it with you, she will get it with someone else sooner or later.
