What type of content can you find here?
We research and share reviews on Early learning with Entertainment and Tech for Kids. Some examples are such as movies, videos, possibly toddler-friendly app games that you can introduce to your child. Parents are wary of the video content circulating on the internet. We want to ensure that what we screen for our children is age-appropriate and beneficial. As parents, we frown when our child is exposed to too much screen time. Thus we should always ensure that the videos we stream for them are safe content and don’t contain anything explicit. At the same time, we try our best to limit their screen time to a few hours a day which is a reasonable amount of exposure.
We introduce and review age-appropriate educational TV shows and movies on Netflix, YouTube, and Disney channels.
We will mainly focus on the Ukulele where we share free printable Ukulele songs for kids.
Games and Apps
We share links to games and apps suitable for preschoolers. And we are working to include technology-driven learning content which is beneficial for kids.
What kind of videos should you introduce to your child in their early years?
Movies and cartoons are a great way to instill good values socially and emotionally in your child. When introducing movies, cartoons, or even apps we should also go for the ones that your child has an interest in or has his favorite toys or animals for example so that he/she can relate with. Movies and cartoons will also let your child’s imagination take flight and help them to learn about emotions and other important values.
Yes we know it’s difficult to limit screen time as at some point, we are always so busy and have no time to entertain them while TV or videos are some ways to keep them busy so we can get some work done. However, it is still important to try to do so as to foster good habits from a young age. Instead, videos should not be the primary source of learning, also promote other hands-on activities that your child may be interested in.
