Lose the electronics

October 19, 2011

After going to my son’s first quarter conference at school I realized that kids spend WAY too much time on electronics. Electronics include co
Purer use, T.V. use and the Nintendo DS and Wii. Study’s have been done that prove that a child’s attention span is decreased when using these items in excess on a daily basis. My wife and I have decided to limit the use to 1 hour a day on school days. The weekends are still up for debate, but the plan is to find extracurricular activities for the kids to participate in on the weekends so that there is no need for electronics. My kids enjoy going for bike rides with us and it creates valuable family time and a group exercise for all of us. What are your thoughts?
