5 WAYS TO STRIKE A BALANCE BETWEEN KIDS & THEIR TECHNOLOGY USAGE IN THE DIGITAL AGE


1 May 2019

Managing the use of technology in a child's life is one big task of 21st-century parenting. Kids are the most vulnerable, curious and innocent beings on the planet. As adults, it is our responsibility to make sure they're not overusing the technology and create a healthy balance between their Outdoor Activities and the time they spend On-Screen.


Mentioned below are FIVE ways to build a healthy balance between your kids and their technology usage -

PLAN A TECHNOLOGY TUNE OUT TIME



Nowadays, kids are more prone to using smartphones and gadgets to pass their time. Make a list of devices that can be used and when they can be used. Schedule a regular family time daily without screens where you have quality interactions and play games.

MAKE BOOKS THEIR BEST-FRIEND



Books are the best way to increase your child's IQ and decrease the time they spend on screens. Reading to children and discussing the topics you read keeps them engaged for better, away from devices and technology. Let them choose books as there will be always something to learn from whatever they will read.

TEACH THEM TO TAKE ADVANTAGE



Teach children about how to take advantage of all the knowledge available on the internet and technology gadgets. Make sure they don't just spend their time swiping and surfing but consume and create through technology.

PLAY GAMES OF THE '90s WITH THEM



The '90s was an awesome time to be born in! We had the best outdoor and fun games to play. How about playing them with your kids? Introduce your child with Kho-Kho, Snakes and Ladders, Ludo, Kick the can (Dabba-Ais- Pais), Badminton, Seven Stones (Lagori), Dog and the Bone, Four Corners, etc. without which your childhood evenings were incomplete. We are sure these addictive and playful games will make them forget about the existence of phone!

CREATE TECHNOLOGY FREE-ZONES



Make a few areas of your home and time of the children's day entirely technology free. Encourage them to go out and observe the world around them. Let not technology accompany them in every activity they do.

Everything has its perks and cons including Technology. We need to make sure our kids consume content which is beneficial and worthy for their time and growth!
