In this quarantine the use of the tablet has helped us with education at home thanks to its didactic and entertaining content, but what happens when we cannot take them away from this device?
With technological advances daily no one can be excluded from technology, adapting to circumstances and maintaining balance is the key to maintaining harmony with the little ones at home.
ESTABLISH ROUTINES AND SCHEDULES
Recommended use varies depending on age, children from 3 to 6 years from 30 to 60 min, from 6 to 18 years should not exceed 2 hours daily.
FIRMNESS AND CONSTANCY WITH PERMITS
If the set time is 40 min, they must respect it so as not to lose the purpose.
KNOW HOW TO PREACH BY EXAMPLE
We can’t demand that the little ones use the tablet for 30 minutes if they see that we use it for hours.
The younger the child the more supervision is needed, this will teach the little ones to use the technology properly, alerting them about risks and fraud.
ENCOURAGING FAMILY TIME
Using the tablet seems to be an individual activity, there are apps for the whole family, however, it is better to encourage moments and spaces to share conversations face to face.
“Technology brings us closer to the people we love, let’s not allow it to take us away from those around us”
