We often tell our kids to get away from phones, laptops, TVs. All screens. Under supervision, screen time can actually be good for your kids and prepare them for the world we live in. Here’s why-
1.It arouses curiosity
Kids gravitate towards moving images. Colours and sounds are attractive to them. They wonder what those sounds and images are.
2. It opens up new cultures
Ever wondered what a house in Nagaland looks like? Or the fanastic Northern lights? Do you know that certain communities eat ants? Well, the world wide web has all this and more to offer.
3. Enhanced learning and retention
Children tend to remember things they watch and hear. Videos are a great way to make a boring classroom lesson come alive.
4. Learning to fail and take risks
Video games are all about taking risks and making choices. They teach you that each choice has a consequence and that it is okay to take risks.
5.Learn to make and do
There are tons of DIY videos for all ages. Kids can make their own toys, fix things at home, cook, learn new softwares and you can join in and learn something new too!
