Set rules are important for Young Children , you still can set down rules even to a 11 year old. Start now and you will be happy you did.
get the Children to finish home work before 8.30 ,no more digital media after that time. Strick rules on that note will help to control use
of the device. Children (young) seem to think that watching youtube video and so on is normal after school (can go for hours ) if you
are not onto it. I have a strict rule ,,,,cut off time ...and if the home work is not completed then "NO FREE TIME FOR YOUTBE VIDEOS"
Once you set new guide lines then the problems of fighting will calm down.
First is .....1. rest after school....no iPad and on. get the children to play outside.
2. Dinner / bath time
4. Watch tv or iPad free time for 30 mins.
THAT IS PLENTY OF FREE TIME WITH IPAD AND SO.
make that rule for each night.
On the weekend if the home work has been done through the week ,then only then increase iPad
time. If not " WE ARE THE PARENTS <ITS UP TO US TO CONTROL THE TIME BRACKET ON THE DEVICES>
Take them away if the Child isn't listening to you. You will see how quick they work with you when its iPad youtube
things they love too watch. Turn the problem around and make it a positive action .
30 MINS EACH DAY IS PLENTY . A 11 YEAR OLD STILL NEEDS TO BEWARE OF CUT OFF TIME , OR IF YOU
LEAVE THEM TO DO WHATEVER ...WHY YOU ARE SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR BIGGER PROBLEMS
LATE ON WHEN THE TEENS SET IN. START TODAY WITH THE NEW ACTION PLAN AND GO FORWARD KNOWING ITS ALL UP
TO US PARENTS. WE BUY THE GOODS TAKE CONTROL.
WISHING YOU THE BEST TOWARDS A BETTER SYSTEM!!
