The Innocent Child.
As a parent, you must have scolded your wards several times or even beat them for having to sit so close to the television when they are watching their favourite cartoons or movie shows.
You want your child to sit at a safe distance to watch the television however sitting at that distance may not give the clarity and sharpness needed to enjoy what he or she sees, hence they move so close to the television.
When you observe your child sitting so close to the television, this may indicate that your baby is short sighted (can’t see distance object clearly) and needs to move so close to the television to see clearly, you may also notice same approach when your child is looking at something far away and has to always make attempt to move closer so as to see it clearly.
DO NOT SCOLD YOUR CHILD FOR MOVING SO CLOSE TO THE TELEVISION ANYMORE.
HERE ARE THE STEPS TO TAKE.
• Inquire from the school teacher how your child interacts the board, whether he or she struggles to see the board or squints to see or moves close to see the board.
• Take your child to an eye clinic to get a comprehensive eye test done and get the required glasses to enhance vision.
• Ensure your child spends at least 2 hours performing an outdoor activities, such as playing, running or other activities on the play ground.
Once your child sees clearly from a safe distance, he or she won’t have a need to go so close to the television anymore.
