San Diego Newborn Nannies (Day and Night)

San Diego Nannies Should Always Engage

San Diego Nannies Should Always Engage

San Diego Nannies Should Always Engage- Why should San Diego nannies always engage with the children they are nannying? The answer seems obvious but is it? According to an article in PEOPLE Magazine, kids under 2 years old spend more time in front of a screen than they did 20 years ago. Many experts would agree that this creates negative outcomes, including speech and cognitive delays. So what can we do to help motivate our little ones to step away from their iPads? San Diego nannies can engage by asking the child(ren) to read a book with them, dance, sing, play outside or play with their many (MANY) toys? San Diego nannies should pay attention to when a child seems to be bored. This can happen without warning and after spending only 30 minutes on a fun project that took you an hour to prepare. Don’t worry, this is normal. Children lose interest quickly. This could be an influencing factor why parents and nannies sometimes use media as a substitute for parenting/nannying. Don’t get us wrong, it’s okay to let a child watch their favorite show but San Diego nannies need to remember to keep it down to a minimum. Tell the child he can watch his favorite show or play his favorite game for only 30 minutes. This teaches them boundaries and that screen time is a leisure activity not an all day activity. While they are away at school, taking a nap or using up their 30 minutes of screen time, start the planning. San Diego nannies can start preparing for  fun activities that incorporate play and learning. There...
