I think I may be a bit old fashioned, but I really don't like to see my children constantly on electronic devices. I started weekly library visits to try and foster a love for reading and look what happens...they ignore the books and make a bee line for the computers! AUGH!
I know that technology is a blessing and I do embrace it--I am a blogger for heavens sake, but I just can't help the fact that I really want my little boys to want to spend the majority of their time off electronics. Running around outside, playing games together, putting together puzzles, being creative with their legos or super hero action figures, coloring pictures...you know what I mean or do I just sound crazy?
First off, I have tried to set a good example. I try to return emails or write posts when they are in bed or at school. I hope that helps a little, but so far they still prefer screen time more than anything else!
How do you control electronics with your kids?
I need some advice, please!
