With the advent of the child, I practically have no time to watch TV. If I look at something, then almost some cartoons Napara and my daughter. However, I had previously preferred only feature films and some educational programs.
But my grandmother is a devoted fan of all sorts of television horrors like Let them say. To each his own, of course, but granny doesn’t just watch such programs, she later recounts their contents in detail to the whole family.
And what kind of world should a child have if he hears such stories every day, sees on TV a naked erotic in every third commercial, and on every 10 pages of a page in a magazine – an advertisement for alcohol and cigarettes. Not to mention street advertising and the Internet.
How in such a situation to grow up a mentally normal person, not intimidated, not addicted to school smoking and other amenities? Is it worth limiting his information or should he allow himself from a diaper to realize what kind of world he lives in?
I can not confidently answer this question, and therefore I try to stick to a certain golden mean.
TV and internet
Still, we live with my daughter not alone, and the home ones do not always share our preferences in terms of television. If there is an opportunity, I try to captivate the child with an interesting occupation in another room while some aggressive film is on. Fortunately, so far it is possible.
However, a good cartoon now is not easy to pick up. Old – good Soviet cartoons do not attract us, and modern ones are suitable mainly for adults. Therefore, we try to watch something from Disney classics. And we like cartoons about fish, not too loaded up with frankly adult problems.
Modern kids grow up very quickly and that day is not far off when the daughter will be pulled to the computer, and then to the Internet. Therefore, today I became interested in how to protect it from the inexhaustible flow of more than harmful information.
It turns out that there are many special search programs for children. For any request, they give out only sites for children or okolitetsky subjects. In addition, there are extensive directories of secure resources.
Conversations for tea
It can be very difficult to convince others and even members of the household that it is not always useful for a child to know what they want to talk about.
Of course, there may be nothing to be restrained in expressions; after all, one can simply brush aside the disturbances of the abnormal mother with phrases like yes he still does not understand anything! or let him get used to it.
And I am well aware that sooner or later the child will face the world. With the way it is, without embellishment.
But did his childhood really have to be accompanied by all these stories about how someone was eaten by a dog, or about small children shot down by a drunk driver, or about whom someone’s wife went to and under what circumstances?
Of course, the baby must be prepared for the fact that the world is not perfect and in some ways even dangerous. But it is better to prepare him, telling about how to act in a given situation, and, without pushing it like this, head on with terrible stories.
In addition, he should know that his house is a safe haven, and in it you can hide from all the negativity that we face every day. Just turn off the TV and be sure that the world has another side, which for some reason is not often told in popular TV shows.
