Screen-Free Week brings awareness to the most significant battlefield we face as parents raising children in popular culture today- technology. However, digital devices are not the problem. Our time and habits spent on our screens are the real issues.
It’s important that we purposely provide our kids with regular screen-free space in their lives.
It’s one of the reasons we send our kids to tech-free sleep-away summer camp, and since our teens will soon be living in the woods without their beloved devices, we will not be totally shutting off their screens this week. But, we will be using this time to discuss our current usage and habits on digital devices.
