The younger generation cannot imagine their lives without computer games and television programs. Laptops and tablets have become the most desirable gift for kids. But is such a long-term communication with a computer and TV harmless? Let’s understand.

Studies show that a moving picture on a television screen often has a negative effect on the newly formed subconscious brain, depleting the nervous system.

From communication with parents of infants it is known that even three-month-old babies are happy to turn their heads towards the on screen, look at the moving picture, although they do not understand the meaning of what they see. Of particular interest to infants are commercials.


Modern children read much less

Apparently, most parents state the fact that modern children read much less. And even kids prefer not to listen to a fairy tale performed by one of the parents, and watch a cartoon. Thus, children “absorb” ready-made images, losing the opportunity to develop their imagination.

A study conducted by American scientists showed that one hour spent at a computer puts a psychological and visual load on the immature cells of the child’s brain in the form of nervous system fatigue several times more than six hours of school. But fatigue from communicating with the computer comes unnoticed, gradually, accumulatively, and can be expressed by headaches, dizziness, obsessive movements, sleep disorders, difficulty falling asleep, logoneurosis, nervous exhaustion.


Computer games lead to constant excitation of areas of the brain that are responsible for pleasure, in connection with which a certain part of children becomes addicted to computers and television. In some cases, the addiction can be compar to a drug.

Children who abuse computer games become more aggressive, sometimes unable to control their emotions. Their horizons are narrowing, the impact of games has a negative effect on the comparison of real and virtual events, it is difficult to communicate with other people. When problems arise, the child does not try to solve them, but goes into the “magic” world of virtuality.

Fantasizing and thickening the paint, you can imagine the future of a child raised by a computer and TV. This is a person with excess weight, shortness of breath with minimal physical activity, because even you do not need to go to the store – you can order everything in the online store. Sports excitement can be realize in computer games. It is also possible to communicate without leaving the room. And the child of this person of the future is again the computer, only with already new opportunities. And we will not have the right to accuse her of contempt for her health and the upbringing of her children. After all, she took this model of behavior from her parents, and only slightly modernized it, taking into account the technical capabilities of his time.

How to solve the problem

So what can be done to ensure that television and the computer do not become substitutes for real life for the child, that he grows physically and mentally healthy, that his life is bright and real?

The first thought that often comes to the mind of puzzled and caring parents is to ban. Such extreme measures do not allow to achieve a sustainable and balanced result.

Reason 1. “Forbidden sweet fruit.” The more we forbid, the more desirable it is for the child. This creates a certain risk that escaping from parental care. Even temporarily, the child will begin to “make up for lost time.”

Reason 2. It is not necessary to draw a parallel between our childhood and the childhood of modern children. Time is different, speed is different, technologies are different. By depriving a child of the opportunity to develop taking into account modern technologies.  We risk worsening his socialization.T he ability to adapt to modern conditions, to become a successful and self-sufficient person.

What measures can be taken to keep up with life and at the same time avoid negative influences?

It is necessary to follow the given rules:

  1. Limit the time spent at the computer and TV to reasonable limits, preferably one hour a day.
  2. Set a personal example. If a child sees his or her parental authority by watching a TV series.  Rather than reading a book, one should not have high hopes that the child’s behavior will be different. Restrictions on the use of these “time absorbers” should be for parents.
  3. Spend more time communicating with the child, discuss all his problems. Use every opportunity to form the child’s right values, habits and life principles.
  4. Gently control what the child is watching, exclude best io games that form aggressive behavior. Watch cartoons and movies together, discuss them, helping the emerging personality to draw the right conclusions.
  5. Do not leave your child unattended at the computer. Do not use this technique to provide yourself with free time.

Rules are simple

The rules are simple, do not require material costs and are available to everyone. But their daily performance can only be very conscious and loving parents. After all, it’s much harder than making money on a tablet.

We wish all parents to find the strength and patience to provide their children with a wonderful. And happy childhood, which will be a solid foundation for their adult life.
