Gift games wean 2017

Postby Tolkis В» 09.01.2019

.

Do you live with a child obsessed with video games? I took it hard, the day I finally admitted to myself that what most inspires my nine-year-old son is a video game. Certain we were on the road to laziness , brain atrophy , and obesity , I went through a long spell of helicopter parenting: policing, nagging, and threatening. This was not a sustainable approach. If anything, the deprivation increased the appetite.

It made everybody feel bad. I had to face facts: the world was against me in this fight. I needed a positive approach to video games, to screen time in general, a term meaning any time spent in front of a screen: games, movies, or movies of other kids playing games. The following strategies worked. I now look at screen time as a fact of life.

Limits are the key. Start with your attitude: approach video games as one of many options in the vast tool bag containing cool things your kids get to do, rather than the evil monster that will take over your life. Those of us who did not grow up with ipads, ipods, and multitudes of devices wonder why anyone would want to spend his down time in a two-dimensional world with no real plot? The love of games did not come from your failure to expose them to sports or to read to them.

They like what they like. Do you start slamming cabinet doors when your kid has been using a screen for more than a half hour? Do you begin to pace the halls after forty-five minutes?

Look for signs of edginess, like mindless snacking. In our house, screen time means total silence, which I love—I get things done!

But after an hour, it starts feeling creepy, similar to what I feel on a gorgeous Sunday when I hear the sound of a golf tournament coming from our living room.

I start imagining fat cells expanding. People on the couch begin to resemble potatoes. If I demand an immediate cease and desist, things go downhill quickly. The kids pounce on each other. They have poor attitudes, back talking about dinner, negotiating everything , even what to have for snack.

This was good information. I extended screen time by a half hour and I gave fair warning. Ninety minutes. Soon, this developed into house policy: they get screens on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for ninety minutes.

Most people will fall into one of two camps. They are a reward, maybe instead of allowance. Practice your trumpet for a half hour, earn a half hour on the ipad. Mow the lawn, you earn an hour depending on the size of the lawn.

Some kids and their parents love elaborate systems like this. Similar to a star chart, grids can be made, boxes checked. Negotiators love hashing out how much screen time is earned from each chore.

Consider keeping track with different colored ink for different tasks. You set up the screen time policy, maybe write it out, perhaps on a white board. Post it in the house where it can be referred to often. The advantage here is keeping it simple. Can I do a half hour of Terraria? Travel days are one thing; everybody needs some mind numbing to get through an airport wait. Now that they are older, appetites can build.

For both of you. There are toys. A back yard. Once I practiced this, I saw it really can work. I got out of the shower, scared to look, and found my kids making a bubble soup in the kitchen sink. They had wooden spoons, tongs, a spatula. They carried the whole thing outside and … I stopped watching.

They were industrious. Nobody got hurt. At least none of the people. Or the pets. Rarely do we power down at the office and jump back into domestic life. There is the gathering of stuff, walking to your car or the bus. The commute is part of the transition. In the same way, our kids need a transition from the virtual world to the real world. Here are some simple steps:. No experience beats the outdoors for stimulating all the senses, according to Louv.

Contact with nature is as vital to kids as good nutrition and adequate sleep. I happen to agree. Even when getting my kids outside is like moving cinder blocks, once we get there, I see immediate benefits. So what! It makes for a long, soggy walk back to the car. Talk about all the senses. The outdoors is the polar opposite of the intense, narrow, hunched-over focus of a video game. The abundant feeling of the whole body in a vast world contrasts nicely with the hand held, 2-D device.

Without any lecturing or rules, nature is an invitation to be physical, human and real. Your child gaming, in summer? Besides mothering, she has worked as an adjunct professor, a writing tutor, a textbook editor and a bookstore clerk. Her poetry collection about motherhood, Amnesia, was published in from Finishing Line Press.

Her debut novel, The Wolf Tone, is also about motherhood from many different angles. Find her online at christystillwell. Thanks for this, Christy. My kids use iPads and White Boards at school, and we do not own a video game system. But I think I do need to come up with a policy.

Thanks for your input here. In regard to a policy, it seems to me that a steadfast one really does help avoid struggle. Id rather have my children be online learning and socializing than be in front of a television for hours watching real wives of whatever or kardashian crap. For close to a century now we have spent 7 hrs a day being hypnotized by bad news ,bad programming and our kids play online talking with others and its supposeably bad.

I dont think either is good excessively. Everything in moderation is the key here. You are making the assumption that computer games are not educational and this is untrue. My son was Minecraft crazy when he was young and he developed an interest in crystals, rocks and Geology from it. He has an enormous collection and books to go along side it.

I used to get him to come for walks or bike rides to collect stones, pebbles etc and it HELPED get him out if the house. As my son aged he started to play Skyrim. We have watched documentaries along these themes also. My son is a very well rounded and intelligent 15YO who now uses gaming to calm himself from the pressures of Secondary education. Games can also teach problem solving. Thanks for this. Good read. A little comment about the Xbox. The rationale behind it was that it would help to prevent or limit?

And these other kids often have big sisters and brothers, who may play games that may not be appropriate for my kids, age-wise. So my kids and I discussed what games they would like and could play, I bought them, and I found that they would be more incline to stay at home, or invite their friends to our place for a game.

For us it works. For now.
