In this day and age, technology is slowly becoming a necessity. Everyone is expected to have a television, a cellphone, and a computer. If you?re not online you?re easily left out. Being stuck at home now means surfing the net, watching television series or playing games, and not traditional board games, but apps on smartphones or tablets.
It can be tough for parents to come up with ideas to help their child navigate through the day with confidence, joy, and excitement. After all, not all kids are innately willing to throw themselves to everything ? some of them are more hesitant to try out new things.
The internet has become more than an extension of the real world; instead it?s a separate and relatively new world where everyone, including kids, is starting to live in. It?s a world with YouTube, 9gag, Twitter, and, of course, the crowd favorite, Facebook. These sites that provide kids with unlimited entertainment, making them spend more and more time online, is becoming a main concern for parents. But, what effects do social media have on kids?
Nutritionists believe that snacking has a large part to play in the growing problem of childhood obesity, and that is exactly why we need to be careful about the high-calorie snacks and sugary drinks our kids drop on the our grocery carts on trips to the supermarket.
It is important that you make your child feel that you are on the same team. Most kids will behave in a manner that will make you proud, and you should show them that you take note of these. When you see your child behaving the way you want, you should also analyze if that?s the way he wants to behave too. His behaviour should not be something forced?it should come from within.
