Or how to get your child to focus by saying yes to TV!
There’s something about kids that’s both delightful and frustrating! Like it or not, Moms and dads have no choice but to look to some type of technology to keep them engaged. Why, I have no shame admitting that I’ve watched lots of TV while growing up with my son – yes, didn’t you know parents grow with their kids? Since we didn’t come with the operation manual on raising kids, we learn all the time.
In this day and age, it doesn’t matter whether parents are tech savvy or not – we have to rely on technology props to carry out a lot of day to day activities – and this includes research, education and entertainment. As parents, we can embrace technology and make it work for us because it is obvious that technology isn’t going away and the challenges we face only grow as our kids grow.
Striking the balance
There is no way we can control what our kids are exposed to when they are away from home. The good news is, we can strike a balance using family friendly gadgets that won’t make them dependent on it. Also, let’s face it – communication and togetherness are the two most important things when it comes to happy kids.
Getting them to focus is perhaps the biggest challenge of all, in this age of distractions. No sooner than they sit to do their homework than the phone rings. The mobile buzzes with a message. A friend calls. Their mind wanders to the playground. How do you get your little one to stay put and learn? Oh yes, it takes innovation. I remember telling jokes, making faces, enacting dialogs and – I am now ashamed to say – freaking out! At the end of it all – frustration that they’re still not focused!
Luckily, there’s an easier way!
Technology. In the form of a device – the Teewe HDMI media streaming device with which you can stream content from your phone or laptop or PC or tablet – directly onto your television. Why TV? Because kids love to watch TV. Why not capture their attention with something they love?
