While television can be a good distraction for children, watching too much of it can hinder their development. To ensure your child won't spend all of their summer break glued to their TV, follow the tips below to instill healthy TV habits in them.

How to Form Healthy TV Habits

  1. For starters, you should know your child molds their behavior to yours, which means you need to lead by example. To that end, try not to spend all day in front of your television.
  2. The next step is to set rules about the television and its consumption. For example, don't let them watch before bedtime, or while they're supposed to be doing something else (like eating or doing their chores). They should also have limited viewing time (e.g. two hours each day).
  3.  Be aware of what they're watching on TV. Not every material will be suited to your child's age, so make sure they only watch the shows that are. If possible, try to get them to consume high-quality, educational content.
  4. It's also important that you discuss the material with your child. Asking them about a show's characters, plot, and even the ads they run on it will help them develop critical thinking skills and more awareness about what they're watching.
  5. Lastly, guarantee that your child has options of things to do, so they don't spend the entirety of their summer watching television. Take them to the park, encourage them to play with their pet, or enroll them in classes that will keep them active and enjoying their time off.
