Now that summer break is here, your child may be eager to spend their time off in front of the TV. However, it's important to teach your child healthy TV habits, so they don't create a dependence on it. For tips on the matter, continue reading.

How to Form Healthy TV Habits

  1. The first thing to do is to lead by example. Your children won't have healthy TV habits if you don't have them yourself, so avoid being stuck to your television all day long.
  2. Next up, you need to set some rules for the TV. For instance, only allow them to watch around 2 hours every day after they're done with their duties. Also, make sure they don't watch TV right before bed, when they're eating, or when they should be doing something else.
  3. Of course, you should know what your child is watching. If possible, try to watch products that are high-quality and educational. In any case, make sure the shows they watch are suited to their age.
  4. Watching TV can help your child develop their critical thinking skills. As you watch, discuss the show's plots, characters, and even its ads, so your child can become a more active participant in the TV-watching experience.
  5. Last but not least, it is important that you provide your child with the opportunity to engage in other activities: reading, going to the zoo, visiting their friends, going to the park, playing with their pet, and more, so they can have a more active and enjoyable summer.
