A gadget or a useful educational toy - the choice is yours!
Smartphones and tablets have long been an integral part of our lives. With it we can always find the information we need, work remotely and even call people on the other side of the planet. This sounds super good and promising, but there are two sides to every coin, and cell phones are no exception.
Sooner or later you understand that the mobile phone has become part of the hand. Every time, we dive into the digital world every free minute - unfortunately, too often! - just to kill time instead of answering an important letter or doing something useful. Adults recognize their addiction and therefore try to fight it. Instead of cell phones, they read books, do sports and try to meet up with relatives more often. Children, especially toddlers, have trouble controlling this addiction. Parents' attempts to reduce their children's screen time often lead to tantrums in children.
Doesn't speak yet, but the cell phone switches on.
Korena S. Klimczak, the principal researcher at Old Dominion University, found that parents' digital addiction contributes to their child's addiction. Parents may not notice that they are too busy using a cell phone, and sometimes they completely forget about the child and do not pay attention to him.
For her research, Korena selected 355 parents of children aged 6 months to 5 years from Southeastern academic pediatric hospital clinic. Parents completed two scales: the smartphone addiction scale and the stress scale, and a questionnaire on smartphone use. Smartphone addiction was assessed by yes/no question. According to the study results, a third of children aged 12 to 17 months could easily turn on a cell phone, and more than half of children of the same age regularly watch cartoons on cell phones. According to parents' testimonies, 73% of children between 18 and 24 months can turn on their cell phones and open apps.
Among parents who admit to being digitally addicted, more than half have a major problem taking their child's cellphone away. For parents who do not have addictions, this number is 26%. 22% of parents with digital addiction acknowledge that their child spends more than 2 hours a day on a cell phone. For parents without dependencies, this number is 4%. Professor Klimczak noted that a long screen time has become the reason behind the delay in the child's emotional and cognitive development.
Korena also noted that behavioral problems were more common among smartphone-addicted parents. These parents use corporal punishment when the child refuses to give up the cell phone. Parents rated as stressed by the questionnaire are more likely to "discipline" their child by spanking or yelling when the child misbehaves.
Professor Klimczak says that many adults didn't realize their addiction prior to this study or their addiction to their children, which is why she advises people to pay more attention to one another. If you find that your friends or their kids use a smartphone a lot, ask them an important question, such as, "I've noticed that your kid uses devices a lot. How much time does he spend on it?" By asking similar questions, you can at least hint at their dependency.
The tablet is not the best toy
The devices are a bridge to another reality not only for adults but also for children. They are more interesting because with them children can always watch cartoons, play their favorite games, look at bright pictures and interesting animals, for example dinosaurs. And outside of that reality, there aren't so fun toys and no dinosaurs outside the window. It is necessary to solve this problem everywhere, both in the parents and in the children, consequently they must find an interesting activity that attracts both. Fortunately, modern ones are educational toys no worse than smartphones, although better. Lots of interesting details, beautiful colors and safety, both for the child and parents and for the environment.
Such educational toys are now a real rarity and it is quite difficult to find them in stores. It is much faster and more convenient to buy everything useful through the Internet. And our online shop helps with that Bim-ba.shop You where you can find many wooden toys for children of different sizes, colors and for different ages.
In order to promote the child's intelligence development, the interaction of the right and left hemispheres of the brain must be established, each of which is responsible for certain functions.
|To improve and strengthen this connection, interhemispheric boards - educational toys for children are perfect, which look like more advanced and interesting mazes.|
At the beginning of the maze, sliders must be inserted, which the child moves first with one hand, then with the other hand and finally with both hands. Mainly, speed is not the most important thing for playing, although the child develops logic, memory, fine motor skills and coordination. You can spend 10-15 minutes on such a game every day, and after a month you will see how much better your child navigates space and perceives the world as a whole.
