As the tittle suggest this post is about my 2year old who is always on my phone watching videoes. I try my level best to engage him in other activities like playing and coloring. Of course I can not be out the whole day so whenever I want him to sit in home he wants my phone with videos on. I want him to stay away but I am unable to help him. Is anyone of you are facing this. Please lemme know how you are keeping your kid away from gadgests

@MattMeng yeah it is very bad... N I am trying hard but nothing is working... Being alone in home.. He has to spend a lot of time alone when I am busy cooking washing and Blah blah and that is the time when he takes the phone and keep watching

When my children were small we didn't have gadgets, we went to the library and took out a lot of books every week and they learned to read before they got to school. We played games with them and encouraged them to get outside and explore. It must be hard on you and your child, that today they seem to need gadgets...

My kids never had gadgets. That age they read books, played with educational toys, I read to them, they explored the magnificent outdoors, went to nursery school to socialize with their peers, and solved simple puzzles. They learned how to read before school and were able to add, subtract, and multiply in their heads and on paper. I suggest you hide that phone for a few years.

It's really amazing... Probably as a mom I am not active enough to do all this.. I have taught him many things. He knows alphabet. Counting. Animal sounds. 5 to 6 rhyme. Still whenever he gets time he wants my phone.. Will have to put more efforts I think
