Aidan Cassidy Reveals Tips for Starting a Neighborhood Watch Program

Aidan Cassidy is a veteran of the law enforcement field who still remains an active member of his community. He explains that neighbors are an integral part of protecting and preserving the area in which they live. When neighbors look out for one another and remain vigilant about what is happening in their own community, it makes it easier to keep that neighborhood a safe and pleasant place to live.

A neighborhood watch program is an effective way to help preserve an area and ensure that adults and kids alike can enjoy a comfortable place to call home. When it comes to starting a neighborhood watch program, the first step is getting to know the residents of the area. It is no secret that neighbors who know one another and care for one another are going to be more invested in ensuring that other community members are safe.

With so many commitments and tasks to attend to, Aidan Cassidy says that it is easy to go years without interacting with a neighbor. However, community members should make it a point to develop real connections with those living around them. This way, if something appears amiss in the neighborhood, they can simply pick up the phone and call to ensure that everything is alright. This is a highly effective way of stopping crime, and can actually deter criminals before they ever have the chance to strike. (more…)

Television Fanatic on How to Encourage Healthy Television Viewing with Children

People often shun television as being a negative influence on children, but Television Fanatic explains that it can actually be beneficial. This browser extension provider allows for people to view their favorite television shows from their computer, making for a much more convenient experience. The company understands that television is not as terrible as many people make it out to be. In fact, it can be used to encourage growth and development in a child.


It is no doubt that television should be regulated for smaller children. But that does not mean that they should be completely cut off from this form of entertainment. With the right guidance, a television set can be used as a healthy learning tool. Television Fanatic recommends these following tips in order to make for a healthy viewing experience.


Make wise choices

Parents should be making wise choices when it comes to letting their children watch television. They should only allow their children to watch age-appropriate material that has been designed to cater to their demographic.


Set appropriate limits

As mentioned before, everything should be kept regulated. Parents will want to set limits on the amount of time that their children watch television. Television Fanatic recommends this limitation so as to reduce the chances of addiction. As children watch more television during their growth, they may become dependent on it as a form of entertainment. Children should only watch an hour or two of television a day while breaking it up with some reading or playing outside.


Join the experience

Parents should not be hesitant to join their child in the television viewing experience. This helps them form a bond and to further regulate what kind of programs they watch. Parents that share in the viewing experience with their child will play a more active part in their development.


Share emotions

Television can trigger emotions in viewers, especially younger audiences. Television Fanatic advises parents to acknowledge when their children express some type of emotion such as delight or confusion. Since younger toddlers have a limited vocabulary, they rely on emotions to convey their thoughts. Parents will want to keep an eye on their children to see what causes them to react positively or negatively.


Keep programming fresh

Children are inclined to repeat something enjoyable. This concept applies to television as well, and the child may only choose to watch a specific program. Parents will want to refresh the programs that their children watch so that the experience remains fresh and new. As the child is exposed to newer programming, they will develop a wider range of knowledge and insight.


Stay in control

Parents cannot simply let their children watch television and expect them to remain on healthy programming. Children are naturally inclined to explore so they may want to see other channels. Some parents will put child locks on particular networks, but it is always best to stay in control of what the child watches.


Diversify programming

Besides keeping programming fresh, Television Fanatic encourages parents to keep it diverse. They should introduce a wide range of programs to their toddlers so that they can take part in multiple experiences. This helps keep a child’s interest and will ensure that they are increasing their exposure to world.


Engage in conversation

Even though younger children have a limited vocabulary, that does not mean that parents should refrain from conversing with them while watching television. The child is listening to and discovering new concepts in the programming, so their parent needs to engage their curiosity. By talking to the child about the program, the parent can find out what sparks their interest.


Encourage recall

Memory skills are an important part of child development. Television Fanatic states that parents should encourage their children to exercise their memory skills after they are done watching a show. This can be as simple as asking the child who their favorite character was, what was their favorite song, and what was the story being told during the episode. Children will begin to recall more detailed memories as they engage in more programs.


Television Fanatic Says, “Let Your Children Have Fun While Watching TV”


“Television time is a great way to bond with your child,” states a leading developmental behavioral pediatrician. “However, you need to realize the most important thing is to have fun. Your child watches television for entertainment. While it is important that they are learning something along the way, you as a parent have to understand the importance of having fun. Spending time with a child is the most rewarding experience of being a parent, so you should make television viewing time a fun and bonding occasion.”


Children have a notoriously low attention span, which is why all of the younger programming is designed to constantly keep them entertained. Parents need to find the right programs that will let their children have fun first and will be educational second. Television Fanatic indicates that a child who is able to enjoy the program will ultimately have a better viewing experience and may be able to learn more from television.
