Chalk Talk: Parent Tips for Proper Television Viewing
For the most part – television viewing is like eating sweets; ‘everything in moderation’ is the best approach. Keep these tips handy as a reminder of when to and not to turn on the television. Make a list of channels that offer educational fare for all ages. Remember that different shows appeal to different age groups. Find a ‘family show’ that everyone will enjoy viewing. Make this a part of weekly family time. Be prepared to discuss what was seen in the show to extend the opportunity to use it as a learning experience. Trade television viewing time for study or chores. For example, for every time a child makes their bed or helps with dishes they get ten minutes of television viewing. Like it or not – every year there are popular shows that ‘all the kids watch’. Preview one or two that your children are begging to watch to ensure the appropriateness of the content – and then allow them to view these. No one wants to be ‘excluded’ at school – particularly when kids are repeating funny lines from a scene.
