Screen Moderation for children - Parental Guidance

Nov 15, 2021, 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Screen Time can lead to agitation, irritation, anxiety in Children. It is also addictive in nature. It does give your child a short term pleasure through its engaging content but studies have proven that excess screen time can affect your child's sleep adversely.
The screens of cell phones emit a blue light that suppresses the production of melatonin, a hormone that is responsible for controlling your sleep / wake cycle. Reduction in melatonin can make it difficult for your child to sleep which can in turn lead to issues like concentration problems, hyperactive behavior to name a few. 

Things that you can do include setting an example yourself, setting limiting viewing times, think of ways on how to give your child positive screen time, playing with your child, encouraging other activities, spending quality family meal time and being involved in their lives. Mobile Time has to be fixed for the Child. Parents should get creative and find other ways to engage them so they don't spend a lot of time on phones. Adventurous things like Pillow fights, playing treasure hunts etc can help them use their time in a fun way. Also, put the mobile phone on gray mode, put the notifications off, do not put the alarm on the phone. Instead use an alarm clock. It is important to genuinely take some time off mobile phones.

Goodafternoon Mam, my daughter is 19 months old and has screen time of 2 hrs. Dr suggested to reduce that to half an hour.. Suggest some play toys or activities to keep her engaged whole day... Problem is I am a working woman so my in-laws increased her screen time as she is bored.

My two kids aged 7 and 4 years respectively do not listen to me at all. They are always busy on their own gadgets. Since we both are working parents and are unable to spend quality time with them and they don't listen to house help at all, we are somehow failing to put restrictions on their gadget usage. Also setting up schedules works for not more than a day. Kindly help with your advise.
