Electronic devices are a part of our lives now. Can you imagine giving them up? Would your kids survive without their phones, tablets, and video games? Listen to what happened to my family when we gave up our screen time for 40 days!
My family is Catholic and for Lent this year, my nine-year-old decided to give up screen time. That means no Playstation, no Wii no TV, no iPad. Our whole family was so inspired by his sacrifice, we all gave up our screens and it has changed our lives in amazing ways. We don’t sit around watching TV anymore. It forces us to go outside and play basketball or football. No one is looking at their phones. We even play board games. We huddle together and read books. Now that we’ve given up our screens, we really don’t want them back.
Would you take the no screen time challenge? Let us know if you do and share your experience in the Dad’s Edge Facebook Group.
