I take my child for a late evening walk on some days, to take him off tv, gives us time to talk about things, to catch up and when we come back, he is feeling sleepy enough to jump into bed!

Thanks Tanuja.... Have a time table for your child which should be followed strictly,appreciate your child if he follows(reward optional) and give consequences if he fails to do it!!!!!

This is an issue common in every household. We cannot keep gadgets and children apart nowadays. Very useful and informative article. It is an eye opener!

Really nice.. I also explained to my child how advertisers try to lure kids into demanding things from parents and he really did start noticing and pointing out how the ads are made in such a manner. Great tips - no screen day once a week, no tv during meals. thanks!

Excellent article Tanuja. We all are guilty of allowing television babysit our kids sometime or another. I too had noticed that my child used to drift off into a state of trance when watching TV. Now I allow TV time only when I know the programs will benefit her in terms of learning a language, good habits etc. She has learnt a few good things from the programs she watches though! But in the end, I am all for outdoor activities, board games and hop-skip-jumping around than becoming couch potatoes.
