The Use Of Gadgets In Children Aged 20 Months?
hello ,, I want to ask, I have a child aged 20 months every meal I like to love him watching on cellphones (see youtube) with the intention of not having to walk “when eating, because I have heard that children eat while walking or while playing it good, and if you watch it, it eats too much and a lot ,, I want to ask if he can digest food well while eating while watching it like that ,, and how long can a child watch a video on his cellphone … thanks for the answer and time ,,
The use of gadgets in children in the millennial era is very commonly used especially to keep children calm. But the use of gadgets at an early age can also have risks, for that use there are several things that need to be considered by parents such as:
The time to use gadgets that need to be limited where children over 1.5 years do not access the gadget more than 1 hour every day
Choose quality programs so that children get lessons, cognitive stimuli from what they play or watch
Time limitation is also important so that children are not addicted to gadgets which can cause problems such as difficulty concentrating, difficulty focusing, cognitive impairment, excessive stimulation at the beginning of development, lack of movement and so on
If the child has a habit of watching while eating, start to limit the watch time, in addition to avoiding addiction to gadgets as well as to get the child to focus on spending his food. It is not impossible that children will find it difficult to want to eat if not given a spectacle later, children can arise GTM if not given a spectacle when eating.
Concentration problems in children while watching while eating alone can tend to divert attention such as children lacking focus to chewing and digesting food so that it can inhibit the process of eating, besides that children are less able to learn to eat well and can be difficult to focus on one activity and difficult to apply the rules another later.
