Kids and TV

Television is an integral part of kids growing up and I learned this from my own experience. If used intelligently, TV can actually be a source of great knowledge for kids. My son, Shaurya, like any other child, was very fond of TV since the time he was a year old. He would stare at the moving images on the TV set. There was no point keeping him off the TV so I decided to put it into good use. I also realized that kids need entertainment and variety in what they do. So while we allowed him to watch TV, we restricted the types of shows that he would watch. Ofcourse cartoons are a part of growing up and all of us still remember our favorite cartoon characters. I didn’t want to deprive him of this experience so I allowed him to watch his cartoon channels, but his time slots were decided. I also used TV time as a reward, for his accomplishments.

Very useful post, kids are more affected by ads than the shows. For eg. , kids think that Maggi, top ramen, kinder joy ... were all good food.

Very true.. the show that kids watch in their initial years somewhere contribute to the learning, knowledge and their personality.. my son has been watching discovery and there have been times when he answered questions in class purely on the basis of his recall from these tv shows. And yes what's a kids life without cartoons !
