WhatsApp, TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, and Internet platforms on which children around in the net can offer an infinite amount of interesting Material – and you available is time is currently a pandemic, which is particularly abundant. So how to deal with it, if your child constantly hangs on the Smartphone? How much screen time is healthy and what is too much of a Good thing?
With these questions coach Daniel Wolff has Digital. Next week, he offers an in-depth Webinar on the topic, in FOCUS Online, he answered in advance the most important issues. With a Smartphone in the Corona-crisis: how to protect your children on the Internet!
Tiktok, YouTube, and Gamble without end: Many children and adolescents spend since the start of the Corona-crisis even more time on the Internet. Digital coach Daniel Wolff explains in the Webinar on 15.06.20 from 19 to 20.15 PM, what are the dangers of the.
FOCUS Online: Mr Wolff, many parents currently have the feeling that your kids are involved too much and too long with your Smartphone. How much screen time is too much?
Daniel Wolff: This is currently probably the most crucial question of media education. I think it depends on what the children make in their time on the Smartphone. There are things that are in favour of the parent page even if they search for information, self-programming, or something Creative to make. On the other hand, there is the pure consumer, for example, Watching Videos on YouTube or TikTok.
For the Former, I would specify no limitations; when consumer I would stagger it in age: In the case of Third - and fourth-graders with a three quarters of an hour to an hour a day, Fifth -, and sixth a-graders to one and a half hours. private Daniel Wolff.
FOCUS Online: when should my child own a Smartphone?
Wolff: Currently, many parents report to me that you have given to your children because of the Corona-crisis earlier on a private Smartphone or Tablet as originally planned – in order to not always take the devices of the parents in hardware, and the part already in the third or fourth class.
That is, we have just a huge wave of new devices among the children. Many parents, however, fear of the second step, which should actually be the first: talking With your children about what they are doing on the Internet actually. You often think you would Wake so maybe "sleeping dogs" or your children to bad ideas, but this is nonsense. Children are curious and, therefore, sooner or later, age-inappropriate content such as violent videos are seen on YouTube or porn.
FOCUS Online: What do you mean, silent wall?
Wolff: When kids get a Smartphone, you stumble, in my experience, almost all at some point in a crass content. On YouTube, for example, to run uncensored games incredibly brutal violence, where half-dead Zombies walking around with torn-out spine. The reason for this is that YouTube belongs to an American company and in the U.S. other cultural ideas in terms of youth protection, as here in Europe. Therefore, virtual violence may be shown freely accessible – after all, YouTube is also with us officially from the age of 16.
game sequences from the Horror game "Granny", for example, the horrors are currently many primary schools. The parents do not know that in the vast majority of cases, while 80 percent of the children have seen many primary school classes, these Videos – would not tell their parents but in General.
FOCUS Online: Because you have the fear of being scolded?
Wolff: Not only that: especially because you fear that your parents are so shocked, you take away the Smartphone. Therefore, it is very important to convey to parents, his children, If your bad things on the Internet you see, to me you can't tell, I'm taking away the Smartphone. This is from my point of view the most important sentence.
children are not able to much of what happens on the Internet, make an estimation, therefore it takes the intense and regular dialogue with parents, even if it sometimes costs time and nerves. Because a good relationship of trust between children and parents is the most important Element of a successful media education!
