Nice write-up. With the summer holidays setting in, we actually need to do alot with kids. I have been playing games like guess who, monopoly, tumblin monkeys, why connect, math puzzles, shape your story, monkey fractions, its great fun!! The best way to engage kids is stepping in their shoes and playing with them. For the little ones pretend play games and picture books with large texts is the best option.

selah McKinley, I understand what you are saying her, but for this you need to get your husband's cooperation as bringing up a child has to be shared effort. You could request your husband to record his fave shows (new HD cable connections give you this facility) and watch them later when the child is asleep. Also, plan fun activities for the child and father to do together at home, so that they enjoy some time together and do not miss television. Also, children learn a lot from role modelling. If you suggest to your husband that he can watch one show, or TV for half hour, and then switch it off to explain to the child the correct way, the child too will learn to switch off the TV after a point. hope this helps.

Hi Ankita, a very comprehensive and useful blog. With the vacations on, it is hard to keep children off TV, specially when its an only child. One really needs to make the effort to engage the child in other activities, as you have shared in the blog. Very well timed and very useful ..thanks

Indeed a very well written article with exhaustive list of strategies to lessen hours of TV viewing in children. Wud like to add if it is possible and safe as well allow child's friends to visit him/her or vice versa. They can do activities such as dance, make craft, paint, play with toys,etc. One cud give instructions to organise room once they are done .
