‘We did not stage this photo:’ Mom stops screen time and kids are actually loving it!
Imagine a warm, cozy Saturday morning. You’re cuddled up in bed reading books and having a great time with your family. Wouldn’t that be the perfect start of your weekend?
Molly DeFrank, a writer, blogger, and a loving mother, decided to limit her children’s screen time.
The results were amazing!
Recently, she posted an adorable photo of her family, laying in bed reading books on a lovely Saturday morning. This precious moment is genuinely heart-melting!
“We did not stage this photo.”
According to the caring mother, removing screen time from her kids’ daily life has a wonderful impact on them.
In the post, she explains that screens are blocking their creativity and imagination.
Besides, they make them grumpy and whiny, and no one wants that.
Surprisingly, Molly’s children accepted their new routine quite well. Of course, they protested for a while, but then it was all good again. She shares in the post:
“I watched my kids go from screen-dependent to cooperatively playing, creating and even making their own “school.” I couldn’t believe how easy it was. “
This screen detox made the blogger’s kids improve their creativity, embrace their curiosity about the world, and feel happier than ever.
One Saturday morning they saw their parents reading in bed. So, as kids are always copying their mom and dad’s behavior, Molly’s babies quickly grabbed their own books and joined the family reading club.
In a blog post, the happy mother shares that after she blocked her kids’ screen time, they became more obedient, happier, and they are having better sleep. She also adds:
“What started as a thirty day screen detox has become a lifestyle overhaul in our home of five children under the age of ten. Quitting was shockingly easy, surprisingly sustainable, and my nine year old daughter has told me on several occasions that she’s glad we’ve cut them out.”
“My kids play together better, are more creative, more obedient, happier and sleep better. To be sure, they are still human beings and can fight with each other like any siblings. But the change in their attitudes overall was instant, noticeable and for the better.”
Molly highly recommends a little tech-detox to every parent out there.
Not only your kids will be more productive and feel way much better, but you will also be able to spend some really wholesome quality time with them.
