FamilyLife Blended® Minute
Becoming a Tech-Wise Family
Don't let your smartphone turn you into a dummy.
About the Guest
Be a tech-wise family. First, have unplugged family time. No screens or devices at the dinner table, at restaurants, or on vacation. Second, have an entire unplugged day. Sunday is probably a good choice since it's a day of rest, already. Third, set limits to screen time and internet access. For example, parents should charge phones in their room to prevent late night screen time. And finally, love the one you're with. Practice self-discipline. Don't let devices control your attention.
