Previously danish wasnt into ipad / gadget. It started when he start screaming in the car seat. So he needs me to talk to him, till i got mabuk in the car showing cars lorries busses colors and all that, also showed him videos & abc apps in my phone. He will stop screaming. So after he got used to it, i cant read my phone in car, to reply the text and all. So decided to buy ipad. (Actually i tot long time ago to buy one for me, to read journals at hosp, bcoz iphone is too small for reading).
At the early days of having it, danish seems addicted, worrying me. Bcoz i downloaded rhymes and balls videos in his iphone. So it turned him on. Tantrum without them.
I didnt let it happen so long, just happening less than a week. So i hide the ipad, restricted to car use only. At home, i ensure him play as usual, balls, blocks, books. The next day will let him has his ipad.
But currently, i just give him the ipad when he wants since he nomore spend the whole night with ipad, (previously i need to off the ipad & let him throw tantrum). He is just being danish, getting bored easily, he will play balls in between, if i open book, he will come to me, he will play as usual. I purposely let my room get messy with books and his toys, so he will get distracted with other things instead of ipads. I feel relieved about it, since he nomore dependent on ipad.
He would also socialize with other people, and totally forgot about ipads, when many people around him. He's getting normal, ipad just another toy for him.
Hope he'll benefit from the good things of ipad, and not to stop behaving normal as other active kids. Actually it change my routine , to distract him. Previously i didnt focus much what he wanna do, since he will sepahkan the house and so many other things, so for now i need to compete with ipads, i make sure he play balls, i read for him, i put aside my phone too. Giving him more attention than before. Once i do my job, they will say goodnight to each other, (mummy slowly hide the ipad under the pillow) see you tomorrow. He also tak cari pon. So no one get hurts anymore. No more paksa rela.
Grow well baby. Dont let the gadget bite you. Glad the jakunness didnt last long as u turn to a normal kid.
