Sometimes you’ve just got to turn off the world and spend real quality time together. At our house, we have a once a week ritual. No Electronics Day.
On No Electronics Day there is no Wii, no movies, no handheld video games, no ipods, no electronic entertainment of any kind. It’s like the olden days, but with A/C and a refrigerator.
The kids know this means they have to find other ways to entertain themselves for a whole day. I will play with them or we’ll sit and talk. Just the simple, pure kind of day that we tend to forget. It brings us together.
It’s also a great imagination builder!
What do you think your kids would say if you announced a weekly No Electronics Day?
