Struggling to find the perfect gift for your child this Christmas? This guide will simplify the process and have you set in no time!
Why is digital detox important for kids
Internet Addiction Syndrome is a well-recognized and documented issue that plagues everyone and the younger you are, the easier it is to be mesmerized by digital screens. Late night screen usage can affect sleep hormones, and lack of sleep, in turn, can affect the day after at school, at play and studies. There is also the issue of low self-esteem that social media has been linked to in older children and even adults.
Children are more receptive to what is being said and done while they are laughing and having fun. Not every teaching moment has to be in a serious tone and a classroom setting.
So go ahead. Have some fun and see how silly you can get with your kids. Teach them to explore their prankster side in a safe and acceptable manner. You will not just help them grow as individuals; you will also help them make some beautiful memories. They may be young, but they will remember being happy kids and have a healthy childhood! Isn't that just what you wish for them?
