Parents, It's Time to Disconnect to Reconnect! Try This Simple Idea!

Screens are here to stay. We all use them, but we absolutely can't allow them to be a substitute for exercise, family fun and real-life experiences. Try a weekly family unplug day. You're giving everyone, including yourself, an opportunity to come up with creative ideas and a time to interact with each other.

When we're "connected," we're too often disconnected from the people who matter the most.

Great reminder, Barb Desmarais! So important these days. It's sad to watch people looking at everything through their cameras. Put it down and enjoy the moment!

Spot on, Barb Desmarais! We all need this reminder as we raise our kids in the digital age, thank you!
