Why Participate in Screen-Free Week?


Earlier this week, I shared, What is Screen-Free Week? Now you may be wondering, "Why Participate in Screen-Free Week?"

Why should your child participate in Screen-Free Week?

Because ... this is your child on technology! Check out these photos of zoned out kids watching TV.

Because ... screen addiction is taking its toll on children. "Parents, grateful for ways to calm disruptive children and keep them from interrupting their own screen activities, seem to be unaware of the potential harm from so much time spent in the virtual world."

Why should you as a parent participate in Screen-Free Week?

Because ... constant technological interruptions affect the parent-child relationship. Check out the dangers of texting while parenting.

Because ... you need to be a good role model. Are your kids wondering if your device is more important than they are? Check out 28 times my angels would have wondered if the World Wide Web was more important than them.

To learn more about the dangers of technology and how you can tame the media beast in your home and homeschool, check out my book, TechnoLogic.

And you can click here to learn more about Screen-Free Week.

How will you be cutting back on screens next week? Please share!
