Now that your child is on summer break and stuck at home, they may want to sit in front of the TV all day. Still, allowing them to do so can keep them from engaging in other activities that can be more beneficial to their development. That's why, you should instill healthy TV habits in your child. For tips on the matter, continue reading the post below.

How to Form Healthy TV Habits

  1. First, you need to lead by example. If your child sees you spend a lot of time in front of the TV, they'll do the same despite of what you tell them. Engage in other activities so they can mimic your behavior.
  2. Of course, an important part in this endeavor is to establish rules regarding the TV. For instance, set time limits, ensure they only watch after completing their duties, and have screens off an hour before bed.
  3. Even if you set rules and enable parental controls, it's still suggested that you monitor what they watch. This way, you can guarantee the material they consume is fit for their age and comprehension.
  4. While you're forming healthy TV habits, also help your child develop critical thinking skills. This, so they can be an active consumer who's aware of what they take in. To that end, ask them their opinion on the show and ads they watch.
  5. Lastly, make sure your child engages in other activities. Set a time so they can read, play, move, talk, learn a new skills, and more, so they can develop in other areas and aren't glued to their screen for a long time.
