The other my 10 year child came home complaining severe headache. The pain was
so severe that she was unable to lift her head even to ear meals. I panicked and
reached out for the doctor who could identify any issues so recommended an eye
specialist. We went for the examination and to our surprise her first question was
how much time does your child spends on the mobile or tab. She did not do any test
it was this one question and an affirmative answer from our side concluded about
the disease and its cure. Simple the doctor said that the time spent on the screen
should be reduced.
However the doctor did her job, but letting your child not sit in front of the screen or
taking the gadget away from the child is a herculean task for mothers. We are
preoccupied by work or let us say if we want to feed the child we put the gadget in
front of the child and we are sorted. We apply the negative and positive aspect of
upbringing together. This concept or let us say the methodology is wrong. A bad
habit can never eradicate another bad habit. Therefore it is important to have set
rules of upbringing, but remember kids are kids and they do not follow the rules so it
is important to inculcate the good traits in them via practice. If you plat games or
surf the net your child will do the same rather read a book to your child to find the
answer and see your child will do the same. Kids are good at imitating thus give them
something good to imitate. Inculcate the habit of reading in them and see them
becoming bookworms. Rather than playing games on the screen play it on the
ground or park. If there is no space for outdoor games get some indoor games and
see their brain developing and reasoning skills improving. Parenting is a full time task
and you cannot let that piece of technology take your place in terms of time spent
with child. If there are kids in your apartment or locality organize play dates with
them. This would entertain your child and other kids also. Moreover the hazards that
technology can put in your kids life can be reduced.
It is not easy but it is not difficult also and owing to the benefits and its importance
on improving your bond with your child it is definitely a must. Your child grows in a
big community learning from different people and has real friends rather than virtual
friend. The child learns to stay in a real environment with real happiness and smile
rather than just fictitious environment where he plays with an unknown mind. The
child learns to communicate and the importance of expressions in his life.

Today is the era technology and it is important to teach the kids the healthy
concepts of using digital technology. Media and digital devices are an integral part of
our society. They are beneficial if used in moderation but can impose risks when
used without any rationing. Keep the face to face communications on and do not get
lost behind the lights of media and technology.
