Hi Bahrgavi Maddulla! Oh so Vidvath has also joined the gang of techno savvy kids. No wonder he gets glued to it for hours as this is an interesting form of entertainment available. Bhargavi u could attempt following methods to do away with his addiction. 1. Make a ritual to take him out to park for at least an hour every morning or evening. You could take him on swings,do cycling, make him race or play with age mates. 2. Go out with family on weekends like picnics to a park or zoo or long drives. A break on weekends would make him get less dependent on I pads and other gadgets. 3. Set routine for the child in which there is time for physical activity,rest,recreation and hardly half an hour of screen time. 4. Avoid use of smart phones and Ipads as much as possible in front of the child. U could also avoid during mealtime. Have family time together where there is discussion on how was everyone's day, topics relevant for kids, give the child chance to speak as well. Praise him for following a routine. 5. As far as possible follow the old adage'out of sight out of mind'. So keep these gadgets away, out of sight so that child can think about other options available. 6. Play games with him at home like treasure hunt, find the particular color in a room,dance on nursery rhymes, do simple physical exercises with him like imitating animals and birds, taking out their sounds, etc. 7. Even when the child is using gadget in that half an hour u could sit alOng and watch rhymes,teach him colors, number recognition,shapes etc but avoid use of same for playing games. 8. Praise him for following instructions. 9. Organize play dates at home. Do interesting activities with kids like making simple crafts, drawings, games, etc. Hope these steps would reduce his dependence on gadgets.
