|this is all the technology that our girls have at their access!|
Recently, we (Tim and I) decided to take away ALL technology (among other things) from our older 2 girls as punishment for a wrong choice they had made. They went NUTS! I'm not talking slightly upset with this punishment. They were freaked out! It was at that point that we realized that they were too heavily involved in technology and too removed from our family.
I don't know how this happened. I mean, after all, we are good parents. We had set down the rules in the beginning when the girls got all of this technology. They knew and agreed to such rules. I think over time they pushed the rules and we let them. In reality, maybe we're not such good parents.
We have decided that we need to focus on the old fashioned stuff. Stuff that doesn't require a cord or charger to be attached. We need to cut the cords! So, over the next couple of weeks, we will be a family going through technology detox. We will be focusing on the "good stuff". God willing, we will refocus on the "stuff" that REALLY matters...good ole fashioned family!
