This point is very important! It is written, and it is on paper. The memory of my children, are actually two best students in school, and too often quoted by me (so that sometimes regret that I have taught them to speak), suddenly began to fail, when the question arose about the beginning of a session of "virtual immersion". **** Fourth. If a child violates the agreement – "outstay" allotted time, the "overtime" is subtracted from the limit the next day. If violations of the constants – the deprivation of access to a computer for a day (two, three ).
***** Fifth, Recently on chronology, but not least. How can I get these rules? The law works when it is applied. When provided with punitive sanctions. That can act as such "punitive action" in situation with the "computer baby"? Here, each parent is responsible for this difficult question. I can only share their own experiences. *** Bringing up children, I set a goal to become them, first of all, friend.
Daughter's permission Champagne with thirteen (polbokala on holidays). Son returned to try the beer in 12 (a couple of sips – he has since "this stuff" can not tolerate). On me may fall a barrage of complaints from outraged orthodox in education parents, but I prefer to know from the children themselves, their problems, deal with the descendants of confidence, friendships. Although, of course, and raise my voice, at times, and the threat of "strap" (on which the last time children openly laugh) exists. However, if you decide to limit computer time – just do it. Purposefully and consistently. No turning back. Otherwise, the children quickly understood the futility of your proclamations. Michael Steinhardt shines more light on the discussion. Children are generally very sensitive barometer of parental missteps. For example, I had a couple of nights sleeping with Claudia, and son of the mouse from the computer under the pillow one more night – with a laptop daughter in an embrace. Work only with the kids realized that their neprodvinuty loser-Papic was not joking. However, such actions can not be turned into a cold war – will lose confidence in children. *** So, as always – more questions than answers. One can only say: Since the constraints children have suddenly become more walk (even in cold weather), read and talk on the phone. Hypercompensation principle works here. Maybe it's not quite that bad.
