Why Gadget Free Hour?

For children, technology is like what water is to fish. They are born into technology and breathe technology. They are the digital natives, unlike their parents who never got a chance to use digital gadgets early in their life. Every young and old are highly exposed to electronic media. In today’s lifestyle where both parents are working, most times are crammed with hectic schedules. This is where Gadget Free Hour has significance. 

This exposure has inversely affected the child’s health. The birth of varied kinds of health issues and developmental delays seen in young kids has necessitated parents to improve their awareness about the detrimental effect of screen-time on young kids and take requisite steps accordingly. However, the pandemic attack has aroused inevitable extended screen time at home.

We partner with Parent Circle Magazine to run the  #Gadget Free Hour campaign to provide parents and children with the magic of connection outside of the virtual world as a prelude to this awareness.  

As a reminder to disconnect to reconnect, the #GadgetFreeHour campaign calls on the families to take a break from their hectic online schedules to spend one hour,7:30 pm and 8:30 pm, with their children on International  Children’s Day, November 20th.

The 14 Day Challenge

As part of the Gadget Free Hour 2021, Totto Learning presents the 14 Day Challenge – 14 days; 14 simple activities you can do with your child to connect with them, engage them and build a bond. Starting 6th November 2021, 14 days leading to world children’s day, we run the #14DayChallenge to disconnect and reconnect.
