    what should we do to children that stays on their games and phone?


    thank you for listening and please vote for me....

    Hi!

    I feel like we should introduce them to other ways to use their technology: photo editing, eBooks, coloring, etc. Something a little more creative or educational, but something that wouldn't completely force them off of their phones (so they would be less reluctant to enjoy the new activity).

    Thanks for the post! Have a nice day!

    Honestly, I believe that we should give children other interesting options. I would never suggest you take the phone away completely though. I would present the child with other options like sports or introducing them to friends that also struggle with the sea problem.

    Thanks for the read. Great topic!

    We can always do what our parents did with us when we were younger and spent too much time in our rooms or in front of the TV: allot a certain number of hours for their devices and then have them go outside and play. Or enroll them in an activity like scouts or sports or music that teaches them how to be social/creative/athletic.

    Games definitely have their place- it's fun to play something sort of mindless and sometimes you can use them to develop problem solving-skills. But kids generally lack self-discipline and it's up to the adults to set the example.

    I would say to find alternatives for your children to do that can be educational and help their health instead of being online all the time even though there is a lot of educational things online and kids can learn a lot through the internet, video games, and much more. Be aware of what is online and even offline, but I would not take technology away fully. A disconnect is good too at times. Getting out and interacting with others helps you while younger to build relationships and grow by going through different situations. I'm Destiny! I have been off the site for a while, but I hope to pop up even more very soon.

    Moderation. Most things are good in moderation. Yes, there are plenty of great educational games, apps and videos that children can play on but most of the time kids are doing these things by themselves and isolating themselves which is not good. Interaction among other children is far more of an important and in my mind can be more beneficial than any game or app. Setting limitations on electronics would be my first priority, then encourage them to go out and play outside or to join team sports/activities.

    Hi.
    For our children these days it’s all about the internet and social media. So in order for them to get out and have more activity I feel they should be limited to what they can use. For starters if you see them gaming so much put a limit of maybe two hours each day.
    Or if they are watch tv to much or on their iPads, iPhones to much then limit that as well. I say to about three hours on that.
    That’s how I was brought up with was limited time on certain things.
    You could also plan actives for them such as going outside and playing with them or walking with them and learning about there day.
    Get them out with fun actives and just keep a time limit on things that can ruin their brain.
