I believe one of the biggest distractions for today’s families is an overemphasis and reliance on tech toys.
If you can’t eat dinner with your family without checking your blackberry or twittering, you have a serious problem.
I’m convinced one of the most important things we can do is set boundaries from technology.
Some things you might try:
- No tech interruptions during family time.
- Take consistent blogging or twittering vacations. (Guest blogs work great.)
- Fast from email on vacations.
- No surfing the net in the evenings.
Please describe your struggles. More importantly, I’d like to know what boundaries you’re setting to become more healthy.
