We have no screens on between 9:00 AM and 4:30 PM in my house. It’s summer. My kids are home and need the practice being bored to detox from the pressure-filled structure of school and constant social engagement. Seriously! Psychologists agree that boredom is the key to mental wellness and intelligence. And it just so happens that structure is my mortal enemy. Screens are the bane of my existence (at least when they aren’t blank and waiting for my creative input), and the social/time demands of the school year burn me to a pile of ash.
Summer is the season of my resurrection.
Which is why you will find me outside on the porch if it’s raining, or on a rock in direct sunlight if it’s not. I honor my inner lizard any time sunlight is accessible.
Or fighting with my kids because I want them to GTFO of my house and leave me alone to rock and cry. Sometime we need to talk about parenting when you are very easily overwhelmed. Ahem. It’s an adventure.
Do you have kids or screen use rules at your house?
