Computer, tablet, console ... your child is fascinated by screens. At first, you find it cute, but you start to worry about the consequences, especially as his behavior changes when he plays for a long time.

Who disturbs it?

  • Your child. He feels a lot of frustration when you ask him to stop.
  • You. You think that at his age, he would deal better with coloring or small bricks to develop his imagination.

CASE BY CASE SOLUTION

He abandons outdoor games and toys

  • You gave him a book and he claims the digital version ... He prefers to jump in front of his home console rather than running behind a ball in the park!

What has to be done

  • Children of this generation view screens as toys. But if your child spends too much time on it, maybe he wants to be like the grown-ups. Or that he feels lonely. So you have to talk to him instead of accusing his video games, and take the time to play with him.
  • Screenplay is often an issue of authority, but you do not have to justify yourself. Give the children a frame. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends up to one screen hour per day for this age. If its need for entertainment on screen is really too strong, also think to consult a specialist because it may be the symptom of another problem.
  • What to tell him. "You are not punished, but at your age, one hour is enough."

He quickly becomes nervous in front of a screen

  • You have to adapt the game and the play time to your age. Too difficult a game will result in repetitive failure and annoyance.
  • When you stop playing, he gets angry and the rest a long time. You feel that he is not really himself and gets upset for nothing.

What has to be done

  • You have to adapt the game and the play time to your age. Too difficult a game will result in repetitive failure and annoyance. Tell your child that you will stop the game so that they can save it, otherwise it's a bit like snatching a book in the middle of a sentence.
  • To choose a game, locate the pictogram PEGI 3 years on the box. This indicates that the game is appropriate to his age. You can also consult specialized sites (numerikids.com, www.pedagojeux.fr ...) or ask a seller.
  • What to tell him. "Some games are not suited to your age, just like movies, so you can not try your big brother's game."
