While TV shows can be entertaining and educational, if your child spends too much time watching during their summer break, they won't keep their mind active and sharp. That's why you should help them manage their relationship with the TV, so they aren't consumed by it. For a few tips on the matter, refer to the post below.

How to Watch TV in a Healthy Way this Summer

  1. If you'd like your child to listen to you, you will need to set an example. This means that you should have a healthy relationship with the TV if you want your child to have one as well.
  2. You should also create rules about how your child watches TV. It's recommended that you set a time limit (2 hours), and keep them from watching right before bed, before they finish their duties, while they're eating, or while they work on something else.
  3. Of course, you should monitor what they watch to be certain that it's appropriate for their age. It's also a good idea to ensure that what they watch is high-quality content that will educate them and keep them entertained.
  4. Helping your child be more critical of what they watch on TV will make them aware of the content. To that end, talk to them about what they're watching (the stories, the characters, their reactions, the ads, and more).
  5. Finally, make sure your child has other activities to engage in. Walking their pet, running in the park, reading, writing, among other activities, can help them stay off the TV, and will make their summer more fun and enriching.
