ZERO TO THREE: Screen Sense: Setting the Record Straight

ZERO TO THREE: Screen Sense: Setting the Record Straight | Grow with Kids | Scoop.it

The research is clear:
Children learn better and more efficiently from play and interaction
in the “real,” three-dimensional (3-D) world with parents, caregivers, and peers. The fact
is, however, that young children now grow up in a world of technology—screens are
everywhere. Not only are they enticing, children see their parents and teachers using
screens, so naturally they are drawn to them. While there is no research showing that
when children younger than 2 years old use these devices independently it enhances
their development, research also shows that when parents and other trusted adults make
screen use an interactive, shared experience, it can become a tool for learning, and the
potential negative effects can be reduced. This resource provides guidelines for parents and
caregivers of children younger than 3 years on how to use screens in ways that minimize
the potential negative effects and maximize learning.

Zaziceva's insight:

We usually overlook the effects of parental screen use.

How Do You Discipline Children? | Planning With Kids

How Do You Discipline Children? | Planning With Kids | Grow with Kids | Scoop.it
I think that it is essential to set up the foundations (the old prevention is better that cure philosophy :) ) that will create a nurturing environment within which children have the opportunity to feel safe, loved and can behave considerately. In reality this means that as parents we need to:

Be consistent but not inflexible with the children.

Have clear expectations about what is considerate behaviour.

Have defined responsibilities within the house.

Have a routine which provides a framework for the children to operate in.

Role model considerate behaviour.

Parent Arguments: How Do They Affect Children?

Parent Arguments: How Do They Affect Children? | Grow with Kids | Scoop.it

Disagreement and conflict is a normal part of relationships. Whether parents are separated or married, issues will arise which may result in an argument or disagreement. But what's important for our children and for us is to reduce the amount, the intensity, and the visibility of arguments when they do take place. If appropriate, be sure to include your children in the resolution of the argument and continue to be available and open to their questions and concerns.
