I am always amazed at the number of my Kindergarten children who have a TV in their room. Not only do they have a TV but many of these children have unlimited access to this TV. What’s going on here? The more alone time that your child spends in front of a TV in his/her bedroom, the less time that he/she is spending interacting with family members. I understand that sometimes parents just want to watch something different from their children but really, can’t your TV program wait until your child is in bed and you have had time to interact as a family? Tomorrow is the first day of spring and in many areas the weather is finally changing for the better. If your child has a TV in his/her room, please remove it now and encourage move family interaction at your house or head to the store room or garage and take out his/her bike. You will be so surprised at how your child’s gross motor skills have improved since Kindergarten began last fall and with a little practice you will soon be able to remove those training wheels.
