Teletubbies with humor?
Although the BpB accepts as a possible position, the demand "babies do not belong to the telly!". But: If you have a positive attitude towards TV, "I'm sure you'll have less trouble getting involved with the Teletubbies." In addition, there's the tip to humorously deal with the show: For dinner there could be a "Tubby Toast", The "bedtime cuddling" could also be called "Tubbie petting".
A very soft position to which we oppose a clear no, as in our first thesis - in the spirit of American paediatricians: the younger the children are, the more meaningful it is not to expose them to the influence of electronic media at all.
The medium is the message
We should not discuss whether the Teletubbies transport more or less child-friendly content. Rather, we should discuss whether under-two-year-olds do not waste valuable lives when parked in front of tablets and Co. A time in which they begin crawling to explore our complex world.
Add to this the American psychologist Dr. Jim Taylor states: "We focus on the content of the technology (videos, postings, social media), but refrain from discussing how the intensive use itself is changing us." That's what 1964 Marshall McLuhan meant when he made the famous phrase found: "The medium is the message". That means: "Behind the mediated content, the medium itself has an effect, because it is unique in nature and appears with special properties," he says Dr. Taylor.
What effect do electronic media have on under-two-year-olds? Every minute before a tablet or television is missing the child to progress in his sensorimotor development.
This term was coined by Jean Piaget (1896 - 1980), who designed a model of cognitive development for children between birth and puberty. At this point we will zoom out the first phase, the three more phases will appear in chapter 5 (Learn to Think). Because Piaget's considerations are the common thread for us to follow the development of childish thinking.
From the importation of sensomotorism
Finally, the Swiss psychologist is regarded as a "father of developmental psychology", as 2002 has identified the spectrum of science.
Back to the sensorimotor phase: The word part "senso" stands for sensory experiences, meaning that the child collects his first experiences in the world by looking, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling. The second part of the word "motor" means that two-year-olds use their musculoskeletal system in addition to the senses in order to explore the closer environment.
From doing to knowledge
They crawl, grab or clap in the water. "The child builds up his knowledge of this world by actively gaining experience first of all in his own body and later on in the surroundings," says Gerd Mietzel. And further he writes: "The only way to think is to do something with the found things, to look at them, touch them, put them in the mouth, and reach for them. While it handles its object world, it receives feedback via its sensory organs; it repeats those activities that trigger interesting effects. "
