“So, no TV, no movies, no computer, no iPad”. “What about your phone mum?” This brief exchange concreted our decision go screen free for Screen Free Week, which is on now. Is it inconvenient? A bit, especially with school holidays still lingering and a mountain of work to catch up on.
I didn’t even think we were watching screens that much. We are an active family and when at home we play, read, listen to music. We mix it up, at least I thought we did. The results however after only two days are clearly telling another story as I watch my guys transform their play and conversation. It’s a wake up call in more ways than one that I highly recommend.
So try it, you might like it …it’s only one week right?
