Do i need to be bothered?

Kyla knew how to use computer/laptop already. I remember the time she is still clueless on how laptop works. She always asking me to write anything here. That time she is happy just by typing any letters in Microsoft Word. And when she discovered that she can play here, she asked for some help. She will insist to open any game but I will be the one to play. She will just look while I am playing. But I think last month I taught her how to use or handle the mouse properly and guess what she learns faster than I expected. She started to play Dora the Explorer on her own in Nickelodeon site. She is very happy that she can dress up Dora. Few days after, I was landed in Sesame street site. There are different games to play and you can choose regarding your age. Anyway to cut the story short now that she knew how to handle the mouse do I need to be bothered? Her latest addiction now is playing Plants vs Zombies. At 3 years old Kyla can play already online. Though she’s not that good I mean she can’t beat all the zombies but she is happy looking at the zombies dying. My dilemma now is she always wanted to use the laptop. Even after she woke up she will insists to play online. I don’t like her to be hooked in online games or just by using computer because we all know that too much exposure here can give some negative effect in our health.

  1. you better showed her the starfall.com mas maganda yun may matutunan ang mga bata. si faith yan palagi ini ask sa akin. No way yung mga games sa kanya.

  2. I have to agree with Hyanne…pero iba narin kasi mga bata ngayon eh…techie na…ehehhehe! Si Akesha nga din she use computer everyday for her lesson…ok lang pagamitin…supervise lang!

  3. To some degree, yes, you do need to be bothered. It seems it’s turning into an addiction for her, if that’s all she wants to do all day. At her age, she shouldn’t be spending too much time in front of the computer. Yes, video games do help develop hand-eye coordination, but just try to moderate her PC usage as much as you can πŸ™‚

  4. OKay lang yan mommy mona,siguro set ka na lang ng oras na pwede sya. Basta games na eduacational at my matutunan sya go!.. yung dress up dress up okay din yan kasi malay mo maging fashion designer yang si Kyla..hehehe..kala mo galing kong mommy no? hehehe..

    my sister kiana learn to play PC at age 4 i think..ganyan lang mga bata ngayon..bilis matuto ng PC.

  5. Ayay, papabili na ng laptop yan Mon, hehehe. Everything talaga meron advantages and disadvantages. That’s early learning for the kids. Who knows she’ll grow up to be a techie someday but then like what u said to much time spent in front the comp.is bad for the health, most esp. sa eyes ng bata. Also, maybe she’ll get addicted that early to comp.games. So cguro i-moderate mo lang ang gamit niya sa comp. or else you can no longer blog haha

    anyway, vsited here with my new baby, a WP blog. and Mon, pwede tau xlink? i added all your blogs to mine

  6. buti na lang si Bogs di nae-enganyo maglaro ng computer. pag sinasabi naming di puede, sumusunod naman. kahit bakante ang PC, di rin naman nya ino-open kahit marunong na sya. buti na lang…i-moderate mo lang si kyla.

  7. ako din bothered ako:( at 2 years old my son owns a PSP already. and now that he is four he is best in playing Plants VS Zombies, Chuzzle, and al other popcap games.. marunong na syang mg type ng nick name nya but he didn’t know how to write it yet

  8. Like Rose said, moderation is key. We all fall victim to the TV and computer or online games to virtually “baby-sit” our little ones. Kaya I understand you. But set limits. Maybe an hour in the morning. An hour in the afternoon. An hour in the evening. Sa umpisa. And then you can make it 30 mins. per. And supervise. Pag school days, wala muna. And set an example. She might say, “And how come you, Mama?” You must have a ready answer. Kaya compromise. St a good example. Be firm in your decision. I say “firm”. Never resort to “scaring tactics”. πŸ˜€

  9. Actually, both of my boys love watching me play Plants VS Zombies.

    I’ve gotten through 30 flags at the highest level, and am still going. Love those Corn Cannons.
