Get off the Grid
Let’s face it, we are all addicted to our devices. Be it our cell phones, tablets, computers, or even TV. We are all spending way too much time on the internet. It is very likely that your children are already addicted too. Kids typically will mirror the behavior that their parents are displaying. This means that the more time that your kids see you on your devices, the more time they will want to spend on theirs. You cannot get upset about it. You remember the old saying, “monkey see, monkey do”. What should you do about it?
Start with something like going for a walk. Not only will it get you outside to enjoy the fresh Spring sunshine and air, but it will get your heart rate moving which is always great for your health. You can also try something like a board game. It will help you work on communication with the family. Just make sure you choose a game that is exciting and not one that you takes forever. You can also try something like buying a cheap camera. One without all of the fancy tech. It is a good way to learn about art, nature, or things outside of the house. Don’t let tech cramp your family’s style. Take a break and do something fun instead!
