Let’s play a game. It’s called I spy. My little humans LOVE this game.
What keeps millions of humans entertained every day, can become a time suck, but provides an outlet for very important information? Have you figured it out yet?
Your right, Television!!!
Each and everyday millions of humans watch hours of TV. When is it too much and how are we using it to educate our little humans? There is SOOO much out there and SOOO much to worry about as a parent!! The struggle is TRULY for real!!!!!
AM I DOING THE RIGHT THING??
Well, about a month ago my little human used the word Cataclysmic. You guys I couldn’t even spell that word correctly!! I looked at him with shock and Ahhhh
Ummm where did you hear that little human? From “Ladybug” One of the shows he gets to watch about a superhero. So, I asked him what it meant. He knew how to use it in a sentence but couldn’t explain what it meant, so I took the time to educate. We used our kids dictionary and looked up what this REALLY BIG WORD meant.
You see, it’s not ALL about how much TV they watch, its about taking the time to teach them what they are learning about. It’s about listening when you humans have questions and making sure to answer them honestly. It’s about finding what they like and challenging them.
Most days I have absolutely no idea what I am doing and I am pretty sure I am going to cause them some sort of PTSD from their childhood, but those days in between……well I hope I am encouraging them to think outside of the box.
Until next time. #smile, it’s great for the soul!
