i want to talk to people
The little man gets his usual two hours online every day at six. If we think he is being good (and we plan on going to bed early) we give him the computer early so he can have his two hours and be done with it before supper. It works well for us. Sometimes he wants more time online and we let him but most of the time we stick to 2 hours. I can feel he is getting bored with the computer and the online world which is a good thing. Yesterday, he was so quite that I asked him what he was doing. He shrugged his shoulders and told me it was a good site so I looked. I don't trust a 4 year old to tell me whether a site is good or not. Anyway, so I checked and he was trying to fill out a simple form to access megameeting.com web conferencing so I asked him what he wanted and he said he needs to talk to some people. Huh? I told him that is not the way to go and when his father learned about the incident he immediately decided we go visit his family. We spent the day visiting and the little man did get to talk to people like he wanted to do, while aggravating his cousins at the same time. He is growing up and he does need to interact with other people other than me and his father. We also bring him to the park so he can play with kids on the playground. Anything to make our little boy happy.
