How to Manage Screen Addiction of your child

Sep 29, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

According to the World Health Organisation, Sedentary screen time for 3 to 4 years-old children should be no more than 1 hour. Less is better. A child between 4 to 7 years of age should ideally have no more than 45 minutes of screen time in one go, and no more than  2 hrs of screen time in a day. 

Screen addiction is becoming more and more common these days. It is important to moderate the screen time for a child. You can start with following some rules at home. Few things that you can do include:

Make sure your child does not wake up to the gadget as the first thing in the morning. Also, meal time is gadget-free time. If your child wants to use the gadget whenever they have some time on their hands, it means your child is over using the gadget. Make a rule that mealtime is a gadget-free zone.  This should be the time when the entire family eats together as it also builds a connecting time for the family who are busy with their own things throughout the day. Keep evening for play time in the outdoors. There should be no screen for 1 hour before sleep time. It also helps to pre-agree on the duration of  screen time for one stretch

Hello Ma'am ! My 10 years old daughter who used to be a very bright child, self motivated and always keen to study has changed completely during this lockdown. Her standard answer to us is "I don't care". She doens't want to study at all and opens books last minute , is not worried about marks anymore, and doens't care about submitting assignments. I have tried talking to her, explaining to her. She doesnt listen to her mother at all and answers back to both of us now. How can she be made to be like before ? What could be the reason for this change as according to her this is her real personality.

What can parents do to get their children de-addictied from gadgets. Both my children 11 and 8 years old are glued to their gadgets when my husband and I are away for work. We reach back home by 8 pm. They start doing their assignments at 12 midnight and make us run through the house to help them arrange things last minute like maps, stationary items etc. We have even tried taking away their gadgets but they team up and say we won't study if you will not give us back our gadgets. Kindly tell us how can we deal with them?

Hello Madam ! When should a child be given his personal phone? My son who will be turning 9 soon, wants a phone . He has been asking us since the beginning of this new session. I am scared what if he gets addicted to it and stops studying. If this is not the right age, how should we convince him as he is just not ready to listen and comes back to the phone topic again and again.

Hello ! My husband passed away when my daughter was 8 years old. Now she is 9 and a half years old. Whenever I scold her for something for instance watching Mobile phone, she tells me 'Papa wouldn't have stopped her'. She all the time compares my parenting skills with him and tells me I am not doing a good job and I am being too strict with her. But that's not the case and I am genuinely concerned for her. How do I communicate my feelings to her and make her understand me better? Kindly give your valuable inputs.
