It's important to find the balance. Pay attention to your child. Are they overreacting and screaming when you pull them off? Are they actually improving or are they just memorizing? That's something else that I've noticed with a lot of these academic apps is they focus on the memorization of stuff. You can memorize facts all day long, but unless you know it up here and in here, you're not going to remember it.
We need to get back to the reason why do we write? Why do we color? Why do we play in the sand? Why do we play with things that drive mom crazy? They actually attribute to all five senses, which actually makes learning more probable for kids, even teenagers, and adults. Most people, this is why they struggle in college because it doesn't engage all the five senses of learning.
Unless you can engage all those five senses, it makes it extremely hard, which is one of the reasons why science can be such a hard thing because it's a very abstract concept.
I hope this helps you understand a little bit more about what you can do with children being addicted to screen time and how that affects you and your kids because it's important to realize and know that these are the tools and things that parents need to have. It's not just a matter of plug it and be done.
It requires constant involvement, just like teaching a child to walk or crawl or eat on their own without spilling their food everywhere, right? The same concept applies. We have to teach them how to use it. A lot of parents struggle with this because you don't know how, but the truth is you do. You just haven't thought about it before.
Go back to how you were a child and choose the same process with your kids. That is how you can help them to be able to not be addicted to technology and be able to use it as a tool in a healthy manner.
