Assalaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatu,
Do you tend to use technology as an emotional pacifier for your children?
“Media can be very effective in keeping kids calm and quiet, but it should not be the only way they learn to calm down. Children need to be taught how to identify and handle strong emotions, come up with activities to manage boredom, or calm down through breathing, talking about ways to solve the problem, and finding other strategies for channeling emotions.”
In other words, giving children free access to different forms of technology at their disposal can be detrimental to their practice of emotional regulation.
