In the new digital era, children are consuming content at an increasingly early age on phones, TVs and tablets, which can often make parents feel anxious and guilty.
However, some television programmes and apps can actually be very beneficial to your child’s development. So as a parent, how can you identify the types of content that can be of value? Through years of research, Jacqueline has identified that watching high quality TV with your child does not need not be a passive experience. Young brains are hard wired to look for new and original information which is presented in rich and stimulating ways. Television can be a great provider of this information and can even help them develop in surprising ways.
Children’s TV has long been a source of entertainment for the nation’s youngsters and many British children’s shows have been credited with having a hugely positive impact on children. One of the most successful and most popular TV programmes of the last 19 years was Teletubbies, which is now back on our screens with brand new episodes starting on CBeebies 9th May.
