So you may be shocked to read this on a blog all about tech and how to make the most of it in your child’s education. I’m quite sure that you will agree that when the tech starts to actually hinder your child’s education, it’s time to cut it for a while. This is a very real part of the pros and cons of homeschooling and part of the hazards of living in such a gaming family.
What do I mean by an electronics fast?? Well for my kids it basically means no TV, no movies, no video games, no computer games, no DS or DS 3D, no kindle unless they are actually reading a book. It may seem harsh, but it really isn’t so bad as it sounds. Plus, this is the best way to get the attention of my kids!
My kids have been very lazy about doing their schoolwork which they are fully able to do independently. Yes, I take partial responsibility since I should be checking their work daily. Mom’s do get busy though. Especially moms who also work from home. And so I do believe that next week will be an electronics fast for the purpose of getting caught up with schoolwork!
