We as elders get addicted to our phones and laptops the same way the kids are too young to understand so they get very fast addicted to everything. It is we who need to understand how we want them to spend their day: Books and Toys or TV and other Gadgets.
Once upon a time, there was a little boy called Aaron. He was cute and loving. He lived with his parents and grandparents. He loved to read the storybooks but was unable to read the difficult words as he was too small to understand so used to keep watching the picture and try to understand. He used to roam around in the house with the books to find someone to read for him. His mother used to tell him a new story every night.
Aaron was good in his studies, he knew many poems and songs. He used to complete his homework on time. He used to keep on singing the songs the whole day. He used to play games with his grandparents. His parents and grandparents enjoyed this a lot. His father was too busy due to office work so was unable to give him much time, however, his mother, grandmother, and grandfather used to always be with him.
One day his Grandparents had to go to their hometown due to some work. As Grandparents were not at home all the responsibility of the house was on Aaron’s mother so she was unable to give him enough time.
Every night Aaron used to tell his mother to read a storybook for him. However, after working the whole day she used to get tired so she was unable to read. Aaron used to get bored so he used to go behind his mother so that she could play with him. To make him sit in one place she told him to watch TV.
Aaron used to always be with his books, so he never watched TV. He started watching cartoons. He liked watching cartoons because of the way they used to move, speak and do the action. Aaron used to sit for hours in front of the TV. He started getting away from his books. His books and toys would be lying here and there. He stopped doing his homework. He didn’t realize when that changed into an addition. Teachers started complaining that his homework was incomplete. She couldn’t understand what to do so she told his grandparents everything about him and told them to come back home.
The next day his grandparents came back home. He was very happy looking at them. They didn’t say anything to him, just thought of observing him first. They saw that Aaron was sitting the whole day in front of the TV watching cartoons. Kids get very fast attracted to animated things. They started spending their time with him playing games like before so that he doesn’t have time to watch TV.
They read storybook books for him. Made him say poems and sing songs for them. His mother started telling him stories every night like before. His father started spending time with him. It took time and effort to change him and get him back. After a few days, he started to complete his homework and started to live like before. Now he is very happy spending time with his family playing games, reading stories, poems and singing songs.
Moral of the Story – We should do everything within limits or else that will change into an addition. We can watch TV but within certain limits.moralofstory
