Keeping a Child Engaged at Home, away from the Gadgets

In the so-called ‘Internet-era’ that we live in, it is not an easy task to keep our children away from gadgets. Moreover, most of us are busy with something or the other, and hence we make our children watch tv or play video games, to keep them engaged for longer time intervals.


However gadgets are very harmful to children. In addition to the harmful radiation, and harm to eyesight, they are no less than habit-forming drugs. It is better to engage our children in other harmless activities, which are fun and a learning experience for them. Some of such activities are –


1. Reading –

This is a great habit to have as a human. It is often said that there is a plethora of knowledge contained in books. Inculcating this habit early on in your children can be very beneficial for them in the long run. With the habit of reading, your children will never shy away from studying. Children who like reading are likely to do better at academics as well.


2. Drawing/Painting –

Children’s brains are very imaginative. Allow them to bring out their creativity on paper. Encourage them to draw/paint. You can start by giving them coloring books. Art can be a very good distraction from gadgets and technology.


3. Chores –

Make your children help with household chores. Give them tasks that are safe and can easily be done by them. Washing fruits and vegetables, peeling fruits, etc. Give your children tasks according to their age. This not only keeps them away from gadgets but also tends to make them independent when they grow up.


4. Indoor Games –

Encourage your children to play indoor games and if possible, play with them. Teach them Chess, monopoly, sudoku, etc. These games are great fun and help develop logical thinking and I.Q. as well. Don’t give mobile phones to your children to play chess or sudoku, that beats the whole point. Physical board games look and feel much better.


5. Outdoor Games –

Playing outdoors is very necessary for the physical development of children. Moreover, when children go to play outside, they tend to socialize more and make friends. However, make sure that they’re going to play in a safe environment.


6. Extracurricular activities –

Singing, Dancing, Taekwondo, cricket coaching, learning an instrument, etc. are various extracurricular activities that you can sign your children up for. These will lead your children to discover their passion. In addition to this, such activities inculcate a sense of discipline from an early age.


7. Puzzles/riddles –

Remember the time when they used to give puzzles in newspapers? Well, they still do but we hardly read newspapers today. Get your children to solve these puzzles and riddles. Ask them tricky questions. This not only develops their logical thinking but also keeps them engaged and active.
