In this case, you want to take out the bicycle and ask your child to join you or you can set up a board game and put away your phone too. It’s these little details that are often ignored when it is time to focus on your child’s development. If you are not willing to put in the time, they are not going to respond well.
Sometimes, parents can end up ordering their children around without showing what needs to be done. This is when children ignore what is being said.
Focus on leading by example and you are going to notice a quick reduction in your child’s screen time.
These tips should go a long way in making it easier to reduce the time your child spends in front of the TV, computer or mobile device. Yes, they are still going to watch TV and use the computer but cutting down the amount of screen time for kids is a must. This is one of the best ways to make sure they are leading a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle. Summit Children’s Center is here to help with the start of reducing screen time for kids!
