How Can I Unplug from Technology This Holiday Season?
Updated: Apr 21
Face-time is necessary and much needed during this holiday break. No, I'm not talking about Apple's popular FaceTime app. I'm talking about walking away from technology and unplug this week! I'm talking to parents and children. Make quality time by setting goals and rules for tech use.Here are 5 ways you can balance your tech time this week.
Discuss and write down goals. Let your kids be apart of setting the goals and sharing their input. Schedule (limited) time that both the kids and parents can use technology.
Stick to your guns. Like every good goal, it needs to be enforced. Parents, let your kids know you are serious and set tech time limits. Your kids can help keep you in line as well.
Use Technology together. If you must have access to the Internet and use technology, use it together. Look for games and activities on apps that everyone can play together.
Don't check it if there isn't a notification. Kids watch and learn from their parents. If you are constantly checking your phone, your kids will too. Think before you check; use downtime to improve family time rather than your relationship with friends and coworkers.
Go old-fashioned style. Challenge each other to have fun offline. Play versions of your favorite games that don't require technology. Get creative!
