Do you ever have such that you want to watch something on TV (on a computer), but does having a child in a room stop you from making a wish come true? It seems that in the video aggression or eroticism, then we are afraid that the child may hear adult words.
Often it does not depend on the age of the baby. It is still so small as to understand the exact meaning of what it saw, but after all, loud sounds, sudden movements, a picture that changes too often matter.
Sometimes my husband and I have a movie night, and the films are not always comedic. We love dramas, horror films and melodramas as much. I don’t like dynamic action movies and thrillers, so my husband sometimes watches them in our absence.
We are trying to occupy our daughter with something for the duration of our sessions. I confess to you, for me the best option is when she sleeps. I like to focus on the plot, to follow the details, the play of actors, the details and the text.
Fortunately, now the daughter can perfectly entertain herself. It is enough just to leave her alone with the dolls and their accessories. We have a kitchen, a caravan, and lots of outfits, and a stage for her favorite dolls. A couple of hours behind this game fly by.
I also like to cook under the background of an interesting video. It could be anything from a popular TV show to a favorite TV show or a Soviet comedy. The main thing is that you do not need to concentrate on the monitor, but you can only listen while doing something else – cooking or cleaning, for example.
Nearby at this time is usually the daughter. At first, it seemed to me that my daughter was quietly busy with her business, and was not paying attention to the laptop. But then, you know, I noticed that she clearly distinguishes one program from another, and sometimes even pronounces the names of TV shows. And this is despite the fact that she does not sit at the monitor, but plays, draws or does her homework.
Therefore, in the presence of a child, I try to watch neutral programs – culinary or talent shows, for example. But with the adult TV shows in her presence had to tie, too often there kiss and say the word sex.
I do not watch the news, but on TV all the more. Maximum – I can read information that interests me on the Internet. The husband does likewise. But at home at my grandmother there is a kind of tradition – every hour the TV switches to the news channel. I am against this, the preschoolers’ arguments about politics are unpleasant for me.
What I want to tell you, I still try to limit the contact of the child and adult TV shows. Moreover, the broadcast is now littered with abuse, violence and curses.
I try to act without fanaticism, I simply do not focus my daughter’s attention on the prohibitions, and I try to gently shift her attention to something else. In addition, I strive to always be aware of what my daughter is watching, because often on video portals, just a few clicks are enough to get to where the children do not need to go.
And do you filter the TV air depending on the presence of children in the room?
