Uhh, doesn’t doing someting like that mess up the child’s hand-eye coordination, amongst a number of other cognitive issues? Besides being just a wee bit selfish of Dad to want to sit for hours playing games while his young children, who are the ones who need to really play, are tethered to b.s.
Get off your high horse about cognitive issues. I know this family and they get plenty of play time and have amazing parents. This was a second in time and they added a silly caption. Maybe you could help your cognitive issues by leaving a site like this and reading a book.
there’s absolutely nothing wrong with this. the kids want to do stuff with daddy & daddy wants a little “me” time to play his games (which every parent still needs “me” time!!) you act like he duct-taped his children to the wall or something so he could play.
I would do this with my son when a couple of older kids wanted to play games. I would take his control plug and tuck it under the back of the console. This way the two older kids could play their games and my son could feel like he was included. There is nothing wrong with it.
Say what you want, but if you give a child a device and tell that child that using the device will cause certain things to happen, and then those things don’t actually happen, that is screwing with the child’s hand-eye coordination and cognitive development. That’s great that the parents only do it occasionally blaa blaa blaa. When did using shortcuts and fooling one’s children for convenience’s sake become “okay”? Isn’t the job of a parent to actually teach their children how to really do things?
hap ur being a bit dramatic lol what about things like a kids playing on a telephone and not really talking to anyone on the other end or pretending period! they are children they are always pretending. they know the general concept of the controller controls the game. so you should just chill because it seems as though you are just trying to be a troll
