At the age of 4-5 years, children are in the “all-knowing” phase, when they are always curious about new things that interest them. There are two things children can start at this age:
1. Using the internet under parental supervision
2. Playing video games that invites him to move
Entering its “all-knowing” phase, you can begin to introduce computer use to children. Because, in addition to educational interactive shows on TV special children like В¬Nick ¬Jr. Or Barbie, you also need to introduce the computer as a child’s learning process. You will feel the benefits when children begin to get schoolwork that requires the use of computers.
The computer itself will later be used along with the internet network that will help children find info-info for school work later. It can not be denied, the internet will make you worry. You do not know if your child is playing an educative game on the internet, or even watching the funny behavior of his favorite cartoon character on You tube. Therefore, the key is supervision. You do not need to create security software so your child does not open the site you do not want. You are the best safeguard for him.
Well, if the child is able to run, kick, to bend well, (it would be better if he already understood the concept of rotating play), you can introduce children to active video games like Wii or Xbox 360. However, playing new video games can be said Useful when used as a family bonding tool. It would be fun if playing video games become one of the alternative family activities on the weekend. Make sure also that the game content in video games is good for children, yes.
One thing to remember, the bigger the child, the more chance he will have for using the technology. Especially now that social media has become a public container for many people to find info, socialize, and so on. So, you must be smart to pay attention to the amount of time spent in front of the screen (either television, computer, until iPad).
And do not forget also to always instill in children early on that the existence of computer, internet, and all kinds of technology that now have to bring a positive influence, rather than just plunge and ultimately harm yourself.
