5 Technology Rules I Enforce Every Summer to Make Sure My Kids Stay Outside
Summer is a time to be free. I want my kids to run through sprinklers, eat s'mores around a bonfire, ride bikes with their friends, and stay up way past bedtime to eat ice cream and watch the stars. And the one thing that all of this has in common? No technology. Kids are too plugged in today, and while I allow it during the school year for academic purposes (and to save my sanity while we're stuck inside during the Winter), I want nothing more than to give my kids the kind of Summer I once had. In order to do this, I enforce five technology rules for my family all Summer long. Yes, my kids still get some, but these rules force them to also have as much fun in the sun as they can.
