Some parents are afraid of the TV and how it can influence their child. However, setting boundaries and rules around your child's TV watching habits can help them create a healthy relationship with it. To learn tips on the matter, read the ones below.

How to Create Healthy TV Habits

  1. For starters, be a role model. It won't matter how much you tell your child to stop watching TV if that's the only thing you do all day. Regulate your own watching habits, so you can lead by example.
  2. After that, it's a good idea to instill rules regarding the TV. For instance, your child shouldn't watch more than a couple of hours a day, and these shouldn't be while they're eating or getting ready to sleep. Likewise, they can only watch TV after they're done with their chores.
  3. Watching TV isn't bad, there are actually some high quality shows out there that can help your child learn. If possible, encourage them to turn towards these shows with educational content.
  4. Your child can use the TV to develop their critical thinking skills. To help with this, ask them questions related to what they're watching: the characters, the situations, the decisions made, etc., and what they think of them.
  5. As a final tip, try to engage your child in other activities. Motivate them to read, play with them, go to the park, enroll them in classes, and give them other options, so they don't spend all of their time in front of the TV.
