The interactive methods of educating and disciplining the child begin to pale in the face of the lack of interest of the children for them and the capitulation of the parents in the face of technological invasion. Now the little ones are the prisoners of other forms of learning and development: video games, the TV, the computer and other gadgets make the interactivity gradually disappear in the parents' attempts to impose education and to develop a strong and active child.
Interactivity is essential in the formation of children and leads to the development of human relations as well as to increase self-confidence. But, on the principle of "who gets out" it is essential for a parent to actively intervene in controlling the way your child juggles and "relates" to the TV or PC. Television, internet and video games have invaded the childhood of many and have radically changed the way children learn and the concept of play and play. Here's how to set boundaries and create your own policy regarding their use and the choice of games for them.
Limit the time children spend on TV or computer!
The first step, experts say, is to make a plan in which to set exactly the recommended times for spending time with them depending on their age. It is essential to respect the child exactly when he is young.
Small children are not allowed to stay longer than 1 hour / day;
Children at school age are allowed about 2 hours;
Teens should not exceed more than 3 hours / day.
Rules for using the TV or computer in children
When it comes to the actual time spent by the child in front of them, monitoring and oversight must appear in your attention. No matter how you stay, it is important to know what you are doing at that time and to take all necessary measures to avoid exposing yourself to prohibited programs.
removes television channels that are inappropriate for his age from the program grid;
you can buy a special device that blocks certain programs to which you do not want the child to be exposed to both TV and computer;
be a model for the little boy - he does not spend much time on TV or computer to not give a negative example to the child;
do not opt for television or video games when you have a choice between several leisure activities; looking for healthier alternatives that can help the child interact;
To the extent that time allows, watch with your small child on TV or stay near him when surfing the Internet; if you enter certain prohibited or unmanaged programs, change the channel, but explain why it is not good to see it;
talk to the child about the main rules of the Internet as it grows and acquires autonomy in its use (about copyrights, piracy, pornography, child pornography, etc.) - teach it to use responsibly the online environment ensuring that it exists repercussions (legal or otherwise) of his acts;
periodically check his e-mail address and the archives with discussions he had with other children or with other people (it is not a violation of the right to privacy, but a measure of protection and security in an environment that can do it vulnerable or naive)
Rules for video games in the child's life
The most important and yet sad side effect of the use of video games by children is obesity. Statistics have shown that more and more children spend hours in front of the TV or computer playing endless series of games without moving a finger. In addition, most eat while playing, here are the food options left to be desired (mainly junk food and harmful snacks).
give you acceptance on every game the child chooses (most video games encourage violence and are full of acts of cruelty that focus on the mental health and harmonious development of the child);
set time limits allocated to the game that you must respect with sanctity (not even 5 minutes extra, otherwise you will arrive in a short period of time to spend hours in a row, without realizing it);
Encourage him to choose games that involve multiple, interactive players to reduce child isolation;
choose smart gadgets (such as the Wii) that also involve minimal physical activity, so that the child is active;
pay attention to the online video games with real players and to the discussions that the child has with strangers (teach him not to give personal details to strangers such as home address, names or phones, etc.).

limiting the access of the TV and computer (2 sources of passivity and sedentarism);
offering him always more active and interactive play alternatives, which involve movement and stimulation of thought and creativity, communication, the spirit of competition;
encourages play with other children;
buy games that play an interactive role;
register for various courses and activities that involve interactivity and interaction between children.
