What to do when the child asks for your mobile or tablet


We live in a society in which technology it is everywhere and contact with it is inevitable whether we like it or not. That is why children are increasingly interested in getting this technology and want to experiment with it.

But there are more and more professionals who oppose the use of smart screens at a very early age because they are seeing that their use has a impact on development intellectual of boys and girls.

So that, What should you do if your child asks you to use a mobile or tablet?

First of all, it must be clarified that technological advance is so fast that it is hardly possible to know the impact it has in the future, since the studies of a few years ago contemplated a minor use in technology (quantity and quality) than it is today, so the conclusions that may have been reached so far are based on very different situations than those that would probably be reached if we started a study with children now.

That said, and taking into account that it is best to apply common sense depending on the situation in which you find yourself, here they go three aspects to consider:

1- The over stimulation it can saturate the brain to learn. This happens whatever the excess of stimulus; we don't have to be in front of a screen.

In any case, if you offer him a game, to avoid overstimulation, try to go varying the offer that you give when you see that your child disconnects. It is very easy that the child does not have to do anything actively so that the game progresses and that the fact of stopping attending has no consequences.

If you offer a video and for your child Do not disconnect of what is happening (and therefore to make sense to watch the video), search short videos less than 3 minutes, to make sure your child sees an event in different and varied sequences. The fewer special effects the better, since the sequence does not repeat itself over and over again.

2- The motivation is a good ally. You can take advantage of that desire to have the device in their hands to ask for a condition before leaving it to them. Take advantage and ask him to do something that involves creativity. This way you will have to figure out how to get what you want.

Ask, for example, to recite a poem that has learned, to invent a game or to find what you can do while you are without the mobile or tablet.

Having established these types of conditions to have the desired object in your hands will not only help you find different leisure options, but it will also appease your craving for it.

3- With the prohibition from its use you will only get more interest. This is true in all cases, unless you manage to turn her around and make her simply lose interest in her.

The best is lead by example. If you don't want him to be interested, he better not see you interested and limit the use in front of the child.

Technology is everywhere, and the best thing is that if they are interested you offer them the possibility of contacting herWell, if he doesn't get it with you, he will get it with someone else sooner or later.
