My six year old son just doesn't get tored of watching cartoons... If i switch off the tv, he grabs my phone or ipad and watches them on YouTube. . Now are his holidays and I have got so many activity books for him... Drawing and painting stuff ehich he likes but still he does all of them with the tv on!! I have tried talking him out of this by giving him health reasons; he is putting on a lot of weight. Please give me some suggestions

Hi Sana, pull the plug out or disconnect the Internet connection in these devices before he accesses them. If the devices don't work, kids would automatically turn to things that are available to engage themselves.

Hi Sana, For some time just switch off the TV and say that no TV watching is allowed during the day time. You also don't watch the TV. As for the activity books you will have to sit with him and do it together. Take him out in the evening to play with his age group once he starts going out he will love it.
