Families Managing Media in REAL SIMPLE September 2016 issue!
Grab your own copy and share with a friend today! This month REAL SIMPLE magazine has a compelling article entitled Parenting Against the Internet. This 6 page article opens with a heartbreaking story of a mom who mistakenly did more damage than good when she bought her son his first smartphone. The article unfolds with powerful statistics and information about online porn and how parents can get on top of the issue. Page 162 continues with our FMM story and offers more stats and reasons to start your own journey through a digital reset for your kids. There is another mention on page 20 in the Editor’s Note.
Resetting your child’s digital habits is important but is it “REAL SIMPLE”? I think it is. Like many other things in life, the best solution is usually the most simple. If your kids are overusing their games and devices, if you are stressed over their lack of attachment to your family, if they are losing potential, becoming isolated and getting more anxious, there is only one thing to do: Reset the screen use in your home and rebuild family connections. While it may be hard at first, you will be thrilled with the benefits and freedom, making this challenge, perhaps, the best thing you ever did for your family.
For more information on kids’ and screens, doing a digital reset, and rebuilding your family connections, sign up for one of our upcoming workshops in Charlotte, NC. Be sure to email us with questions and then rediscover the fun you can have when you go outside and play with your kids!
