As a babysitter, unavoidable I have to make my babies happy, comfortable and enjoyable when they’re in my house, that’s one of the rules of babysitter job description. If you’ve a job like me, you’ll know how I’m struggling to handle the babies every single time. Despite of keeping my place clean, the difficult part is to hide my phone from them to prevent them from addicted to YouTube so much. I’m not saying YouTube is bad for kids, but every applications in our smartphone have their own pros and cons I’m sure you’ve alert about this.
Back then, we don’t need to open and search for kids song at Youtube, unlike now they, the kids already know what is Youtube for and they’re keeping force me to open YouTube application for watching kids video especially Head Shoulders Knees & Toes from ABCkidTV with their tears and scream. When I played the videos, they’ll focused on the screen and when I watched them, they were like me watching a video about how to make a chocolate cake 😅.
The important thing is only two, when the right time to let them chill out with YouTube and how much longer you’ll let them be. I suggest you to not let them watch YouTube videos when they just arrived at your place precisely morning, before the nap and bath time and in the evening or before they get home. Because for me, there’s a pretty preferential bonding time with your kids, so you can use it for make your kids feel happy more than when they watched YouTube videos. I only let them watch for 10-15 minutes and no more than that.
