Unplugging for Spring Break
As you all can tell, my life revolves around my family. Lolo has started her spring break and is home with me along with Annie and Dels. Molly is the one who has been sick and just yesterday went back to school. (High temp, cough, no appetite~ watch out, it's going around) Anyways, getting to the point... I have been online quite a bit, I love to read your blogs and I love being able to share a glimpse of our lives in my own blog. BUT~ I have decided that for spring break, I will be spending it with my family, my children who tug for my attention. I only have one chance in my life to mold and create wonderful children and with everyone out of school, this is my chance.
Of course I do have to mention the video. I saw this on the Today Show. At first I was listening with only one ear, but later on in the interview it really caught my attention. Part of me listens to these ladies and says "Well, who the heck buys all the technology toys for the kids?" OR "If you don't like seeing your children plugged in to all these gadgets, why not change that?" So listen to the video and give me your opinion.
Are you too plugged in?
Are your children?
At what age do you think tech gadgets are appropriate?
Do you allow tv/other gadgets in their bedroom?
Do you limit time spent plugged in?
Time spent plopped down in front of the tv?
What are some positives/negatives of tech on your life?
Just a few idea questions, now tell me what you think.
For now, I am turning off the cartoons...Goodbye Dora! I am turning off the morning shows. I am unplugging the computer *sigh and a tear*
Watch out kids, you are in for an overdose of MOMTIME!
BUT I WILL BE BACK!
