Most likely your children will not start doing fun activities on their own. You have to encourage them, show them how fun can some outside activity be. Nowadays, this has become a very important part of a parent because now everything is digitalized and simplified. The only activity your kids will do is play on the computer all day. A lot of things have changed in the past 15 years regarding the parenting. All that is because of the advancement of technology, 15 years ago kids were playing outside, every day a different game and more importantly they were making new friends and building their relationships. However, now we can barely see kids that are playing outside and the reason for that is technology.
Even parents cannot turn their kids from technology because it is now surrounding us and we use it too. However, as a mother, you can do certain things that will make your kid forget about his computer games, even if it is for a short time. Kids shouldn’t be stuck to their smartphones and computers all day playing and chatting with their friends through them. They need person to person communication, otherwise, they will not develop the needed human skills that they need later in their lives.
Addiction of Computer Games
Nowadays it is impossible to keep your children away from video games. Some video games can be very inappropriate for their age, so you must pay close attention what games they are playing.It can be very complicated and difficult to explain to your children that they need to go outside and play. To you, this might sound silly but kids these days do not know how much fun they can have outside the house. Therefore, you as their mother should show them by taking them to different places outside such as parks. There are so many things you can do that will entertain your kid and more importantly drag them away from technology.
A Picnic is a great distraction from technology. It is the simplest way to do something fun outside your home. Go to any park with grass and set up a picnic. You can make this a weekly or monthly thing, that way you can get some quality time with your kids.
Camping is another good way to enjoy the company of your kids. Every kid would love to go camping even if they say that they rather stay home, that is just the addiction for computers talking. That will fade instantly if you make this camping experience unforgettable. Your kids will want to go again because it will most likely be the biggest fun trip they ever had. Camping for few days is a great way to bond and connect even more with your kids. Go camping somewhere where you can teach them interesting things such as a fishing trip. Teach them how to build a bonfire and how to set up a tent. All those things will stay in their memories forever.
