How to Lower Gadget Use on Toddler
And then I noticed how my little girl changed her behavior. She doesn't listen anymore, she would cry because she doesn't get what she wants, etc. And because we've been having problems with the shop, I thought maybe this is also a sign that I should stop with it, and focus on my little girl more. And so that's what I did. (Okay, we didn't make a decision over night, we thought about it for quite a time)
Of course that didn't change my little girl in just a snap. But now, she only had 1-2hours max of gadget use. And I'm hoping, in the coming days/weeks it would lessen until no more gadget use.

2. STOP whatever you're doing if your child calls you, if your child wants to play with you, play with him/her.
3. And yes, let's go back to number 2, give attention to your child.
And that's it. It's simple. Just give more attention to your child. I may still have lapses, I know, but I'm pretty sure I'm getting there, and I'm such a happy momma because her gadget use has lowered than how she does before.
And oh, another one...
4. Don't give in. If your child cries because she wanted to watch, don't let him/her. Kids are smart, they'll know they can manipulate you when they cry. (Lol but true! Right?! HAHAHA)
