The influence of the computer on child development
The main danger is that the childPreschool and primary school age should develop in games and dynamics. The children's organism concentrates on the development of systems and organs. After 14 years of age, the child begins to develop spirituality.
Therefore, if the child spends in front of the computerA lot of time, there is almost no time for active games, as a result, we get reorientation of physiological processes, and although the intellect starts to form earlier, physical fitness is lost. For example, a preschooler demonstrates a high level of intelligence, but the child's physical development is at an extremely low level. Premature aging has its consequences: adolescents have problems with blood vessels, cancer, cancer, atherosclerosis, and other dangerous diseases for life.
Often one can observe such a picture: A three-year-old child sits at the computer and deftly manages with it, and parents feel pride and joy. But they do not think that such skills are only superficial, and therefore they can not help the child in the future. This ability of the child can be attributed, most likely, to the fact that it is easier for parents using a computer to take a child than to give them their time, devising mobile exercises and games. Thus, to educate preschoolers only with the help of a computer is not worth it, otherwise you will have to reap serious physical and moral consequences.
It is also worth noting that the development of children'sIntellect does not at all mean that he will succeed in life. Since the intellectual level does not in any way affect the development of the emotional-volitional component of the personality and does not at all mean that the child is able to withstand the difficulties and problems of the world around him. Therefore, try to evenly distribute the load, while remember that you do not need to concentrate only on the development of actual knowledge and intelligence.
How to correctly allocate time for using the computer
The first thing to remember: Free access to the computer the child can receive only when he is interested in the world around him and he has formed value guidelines. Such period in the child comes about in 9-10 years.
The second thing to remember. The child should not spend all his free time at the computer. A day is enough for two hours, moreover with interruptions. In addition, you must teach the child to control the time spent in front of the computer monitor, if the child learns to do this, you will avoid unpleasant "battles" associated with access to the computer. It is very important that the child in this matter is conscious. Do not allow the child to have a computer addiction.
