I have been trying to make my children play less computer games and more outdoor activities. Given them time to play the computer games while I do the housework are not worth it at all. First they want to play the computer games.. fine.. I want them to stick to the one I recommended the educational games.. or at least playhouse disney or DXD but instead they find other games online.. which I feel a bit violence on how they created it. The second issues are that when I have given the limited time, they need an extra time.
After playing the computer games, especially my visual son, he will become super excited and if not given chance to play, he will be agitated. And that makes me, not only to make him play less computer games but even to ‘stop’ it right away.
I do not want to see my son acting like that.. I want him to be able to control of himself and in order to do that, he need to do some outdoor activities. I will learn to create the busy schedule that we have and make time for outdoor games and fun, even riding a bicycle will help him on balance coordination. Need to get the helmets for them and let them run free in the park.
Outdoor activities or any other fun activities are more worth it rather than sitting down and playing computer games. Playing computer games makes a child more negative emotions such as anger, upset and frustrated if they lose ..that is why they need more time.. to win. I want my children and other children to be kids again. Let them enjoy the freedom to run freely, learn to fall and rise again, feel the pain of learning and never give up.
