Glued To Television - A Boon!

-By Rishika Desai

Television has nothing but a very negative impression on every mother’s mind. Parents watch their kids seeing various cartoons running around the house and doing nothing. Needless to say, they feel that kids these days are missing out on the basic fun and play of life. But little do they know, this television watching and the habit as well can be converted into a boon.

Now the biggest boon here I’d like to mention is that the technology will soon replace the chalk and duster method of teachings. Now that today’s half of the schools have e-learning methods which enhance their learning with the visualization methods, why should the kids not have a habit of keen observation towards the screen? There is also a probability of an era where the kids will mostly have education over the network and online educators. Isn’t it suitable for the kids to keep the habit of continuous watching television and make them used to the trend?

Another more important fact is that it is not always that the kids are stuck to the wrong content on the television. Parents should keep an eye on what their kid is keeping himself buy-in. As in, you never know a few channels like Animal Planet, Discovery and National Geographic can take your kids to different parts of the world. From knowledge of industries, facts, flora, and fauna to certain cultures; kids can keep themselves accustomed to the correct things! Being a good parent, don’t restrict your kids to just scribble on paper without understanding the concepts, but you can restrict the content that they’re watching on the television.

Being their caretakers, your concern about the kids getting specs from a tender age is completely valid. But yes, various eye-protecting glasses have been released by these same markets. Also, upon restricting them you realize that there are chances your kids can say lies. So instead, give them the freedom they deserve and trap them at knowledgeable content watching only! Modern parenting, isn’t it?
