Hi Mamta, If you feel she is really addicted to TV, then you will have to completely stop it. 1) You could tell her that the TV is broken and can't be switched on. She will cry, howl, throw tantrums, but then also will gradually figure out newer ways to engage herself. 2) You will need to be patient. 3) Also, remember when you tell her that TV is broken, no one in the house should switch if off when she is around or awake. It is not fair on the child that while she is being denied TV, others in the house are enjoying it. children will not understand the logic that we are older and can watch, while they can't. 4)Also, when she insists on TV, like coming back from a walk, distract her with something else such as let's wash our feet (children love playing with water) or lets make nnimbu paani (you could hand her a squeezed nimbu to play around with. 5) You will have to get involved yourself with her toys to involve her for eg: you can tell her that lets play with blocks and make a tower Hope these ideas help you. t

Thanks Rachna for your suggestions. Dear Mamta, thanks for raising this topic, I was about to post the same question today. I am also facing this problem. My 2. 3 yrs old daughter always wants to watch rhymes either on mobile or laptop or TV. We try to distract her by many other things but she is very stubborn. Yesterday, when I took back my mobile from her she cried so so much. It is getting very difficult to handle her. Watching cartoons n TV\laptop & mobile for longer hours is not at all good for any child's health. Please please help!!
