Traditional Clocks vs Smart Watches

While it may be tempting to buy your child a smartwatch so they can have all the bells and whistles that come with it, there are some drawbacks. First of all, smartwatches are expensive. And secondly, they can be a distraction. If you’re looking for a quality timepiece that won’t break the bank and will help your child focus, stay away from smartwatches…for now anyway. Plus, smartwatches are more than likely on the “delicate” side. Meaning, it probably won’t stand up to the wear and tear a child will put it through. Just think about the last toy you bought little junior.

Spending your precious resources on a fancy, “easy-to-read” smartwatch only to have it end up scratched, dented, torn, or worse… rendered inoperable due to a child’s explanation of extenuating circumstances would be frustrating, to say the least. However, when it comes to the traditional clock, it’s not always easy for a youngster to tell time with all the hands, numbers, no numbers, extra lines, and so forth. They aren’t easy for young kids to learn right away. Mainly because they use Roman numerals which can be confusing, and most don’t have any color.

It can be hard to explain to a child what an IV on a clock face means. Not only that, some traditional clock faces don’t have any markings for the numbers five through nine. This can be frustrating for little ones who are trying to learn how to tell time.

What’s the Best Age to Start Teaching a Child How to Tell Time?

There’s no one answer to this question since every child is different. However, most experts recommend teaching kids the basics of telling time around ages four or five. Of course, you can start sooner if your child shows an interest or if they’re a visual learner. When it comes to teaching your child how to tell time you want to make sure they understand the difference between hours and minutes. You don’t want to overwhelm them with too much information at once. Start with the basics and then build on that, but do it in a fun and positive way so they truly learn how to tell time.
