Neither children’s crying, nor their hyperactivity makes us less sensitive to their contagious tenderness. But, more than sensitivity cases, kids require too much attention, which covers their education and the full development of their abilities.
Nowadays, mothers face the challenge of having a job, in addition to their daily housework and the caretaking of their kids on their return home. The exploit is laudable notwithstanding those moments when we keep them watching TV for hours in order to ensure their quietness.
This action could bring about numerous complications: from sedentary lifestyle, and early obesity, up to over-imposed autism, which hinders socialization and language.
We advocate therefore for more interactivity with kids, through the fostering of physical activity and the reduction of technology use at early ages.
