In the modern world, our children are constantly distracted by TV, computer games , game consoles and even mobile phones. These distractions do not help in the child’s development and yet compete for your child’s time and attention. Moreover, these present day games are increasingly promoting violence and gore. Parents have to constantly shield their children from these negative influences.
As parents, we have a duty to engage our child in healthy learning activities that cultivates in them qualities such as responsibility, independence, critical thinking and love of learning.
