Podcast for kids is a means of entertainment and learning. Back in those days, there were a high number of joint families that consisted of parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts and pet animals. Indeed, they all used to live under one roof. They all dined, celebrated festivals, spent weekends, visited places and went on picnics together. The big family kept the children entertained. The kids enjoyed listening to stories from their grandparents. However, in the search for gold, we lost the diamond. Presently the size of the family has become smaller. Parents are involved in so much other work. They can’t afford to spend long hours with their children, especially during this pandemic. Parents are aware that stories and children complement each other. So they rely on machines to narrate stories. This is when podcasts play a significant role in giving parents a break while keeping the children entertained.
Podcast for kids have become a blessing.
Lockdowns, closed schools and remote learning keep kids stuck indoors more than usual. There are limits on how long a child can be confined at home all day. But the limits are extended only with some good entertainment through podcasts. In virtual meetings and remote learning, screen fatigue is real. Podcast channels help the kids to take a break from the screen. Numerous podcasts are currently available over the internet. Good podcast channels are always a source of knowledge and encourage kids to think out of the box. It enhances their listening ability and communication skills. Recent research on podcast for kids has reported that 80% of children listen. About 75% of kids discuss the topics with their family which promotes family bonding. So, here at TIPS, we encourage our children to come up with creative stories, rhymes, and educational content for podcasting.
