Gadgets, TV and our kids
« on: May 12, 2008, 10:04:17 pm »

Medyo alarmed lang ako kanina when my 4yo saw in TV a couple's long puckered kiss on the lips with eyes closed pa. She likes the way Dyesebel kisses the boy. I didn't show any sign of shock. She doesn't understand 'romantic' kiss yet, but this leads me to ask, how can I explain this to my kid. Or maybe I should wait til she gets a bit older, "crush" age? She sees it on disney princess stories, they kiss their prince, so what difference does Dyesebel make?

I let her freely watch TV pero Disney Channel and Nick Jr. lang. 

On gadgets naman, how can you tell if the child is already addicted? How much is too much?

 :) hi mommies...typical yung mga reaction ng mga bata, they imitate or mimic yung mga nakikita nila. in my case, my 3 year old daughter (yancy) saw my hubby and i give each otehr a smack on the lips. sabi niya, pwede din po ako kis? sabi ko, ang mga babies di pa puwede kiss sa lips kasi pag me sipon yung kikiss sa kanila, mahahawa sila. mula non, di na sya kis sa lips.  TV watching is already a big issue, dami kasing programs na di talaga pambata, kahit pa GP ang rating.  meron daw kid's lock or something sabi ng sis ko sa states, na yung tv pwede mong i-set lang sa particular program or channel at a specific time pero di ko alam kung meron din dito sa atin. sana nga meron...

ask lang po. napansin ko lang po na parang nanonood na po yung baby ko. di ko alam kung ok lang po b un? and since yung MIL ko ang nag aalaga sa baby ko kung ano yung pinapanood ng MIL ko un yung napapanood niya. gusto ko snang papanoorin siya ng mga educational shows like brainy baby and baby einstein kaya lang feeling ko he's too young for it pa.

For me, ok lang papanoorin mo baby mo ng baby einstein or brainy baby...

exerpt from http://www.zerotothree.org/site/PageServer?pagename=key_language

Many people believe that children learn to read and write in kindergarten or first grade. But developing literacy skills begins at birth through everyday loving interactions—sharing books, telling stories, singing songs, talking to one another, or pointing out and naming objects.

visit the site and you'll learn alot from it, meron din sila downloadad na reading materials in PDF... :)

ok thanks po momi rmi.
may brainy baby books na kami. yung colors and shapes yung binabasa ko sa kanya.

di ko kc alam kung bibili ba ako ng educational dvd eh ipapanood ba ng MIL ko. medyo kc matipid sa kuryente un eh... halos ayaw gumamit ng appliances that consumes electricity

sa tanghali at gabi lang sila kung manood ng tv.. yung GKNB at eat bulaga. tpos sa gabi soaps naman...

more info.... on tv's
(excerpt from http://www.zerotothree.org/site/DocServer/GettingReadyforSchoolBeginsatBirth.pdf?docID=781&AddInterest=1153)

TV plays a limited role in learning. Although children may learn some concepts from educational
programming, and enjoy watching these shows, research tells us that children learn
best from interactive, hands-on experiences—touching, feeling, manipulating, problem-solving—with
people they care about.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no TV for children under 2. If you do choose to allow your child to watch, here are some suggested guidelines:

Watch with your child. Make TV watching an interactive experience. Dance and sing together. “Extend the learning” by talking about what he’s viewing and
connecting it to the real world. If the show deals with the theme of sharing,
point out how this comes up for your child in his daily life. If he’s learning
about colors, talk about the different color houses you see as you take a walk.

Don’t use TV/video to put your child to sleep. This makes it hard for
him to learn to fall asleep on his own. Instead, establish a bedtime routine that
includes soothing activities such as reading and singing softly to him before
you put him down.

Limit viewing time. A 30- to 60-minute-a-day limit for any “screen time”
(meaning time spent in front of a TV or computer screen) is reasonable for
2- to 3-year-olds.

mommy rmi, many thanks for posting this one.  i copied it and i shared it sa mga ofc mates ko. ganda! na validate din yung mga opinion ko kasi my MIL loves o watch soap operas so pag visit ang baby ko napapanood din siya, then paguwi naman sa nanay ko (where she really stays) bawal naman soap operas so medyo noong una naconfuse c yancy: pwede ba o hindi para sa kanya ang soap operas.

my daughter Cadence is like that.  she was imitating it when she watched the Cinderella 3 cd....to the point of kneeling down and as if she's holding a box of ring and asking me to marry her  :D

i let her do it at first but later on i told her that kissing like that are meant for Daddy's & Mommy's only.  I also explained why the prince asked that to Cinderella.   She does kiss us still on the lips but not the way he has seen on the cartoons.  but she still asks me often to marry her but for her it's just a game na lang kasi after that she herself would tell the explanation behind.

so even before those incidents hppened we were already strict on things she watches, imagine kung hindi di ba?  even the maids and yaya's are strictly informed on what and what not to let her watch.
