Kids & Electronics


Anyone else feel like a drill sergeant or a hall monitor with all the electronics? It may be my least favorite roll as a Mom. 

A week and a half ago I made this basket and told my kiddos that for a minute, electronics were only going to be used for homework. I told them that they had to check their device out of the basket and sit by me while using it, just because we were getting to the point of overuse. I feel like a weight has been lifted from me this week. It’s like I found my kids again and they are figuring out other things to do. I love it. 

It really is one of the most interesting things, parenting in this new arena. There are so many different ways to do it. I love the insight that I have gotten from @collinkartchner on this topic. I love the voice he is lending in this area! You can check him our here.
