Do you find yourself reminiscing about how life was simpler as a child when playtime and colouring between the lines were your priorities?
Well, a little boy from Hyderabad took his priority rather seriously. Maybe a little too seriously.
Imagine the shock of police officials at SR Nagar police station when this boy walks in and demands to file a complaint against his own grandmother.
Because she had put restrictions on his play time!
Watch the India Today video here:
Apparently, the grandmother also took some money from the boy ticking him off. But thankfully, the young boy's parents were then called to the police station and counselled. After some coaxing with a few chocolates, he withdrew his complaint.
Turns out the boy took inspiration from TV serials and decided to file a complaint, Waheedudin, the SHO of SR Nagar police station, told India Today. His father is a cable operator.
Now, it's not clear by how much the little one's play time was reduced and whether it was the time he spent on his parents' phones or playing outdoors. But what is the ideal play time for kids?
With the average child spending more and more time on electronic items, a study by Oxford University shows that children spending more than three hours playing video games may be at a loss than children who are allowed to play for an hour to three hours.
