Tips on How To Get Your Tech Savvy Kids to Unplug

My kids are definitely Tech Savvy. 

They have learning pads, tablets, iPods, and of course Video Games.  

When I sit and watch them at play it never fails to place me in awe.  

My Kids are very aware of how each of their pieces of Tech work.  

I can’t even remember the last time one of them had to ask me for help.  

Even my 3 year old is completely at ease with turning on his table, finding an App he likes and proceeding to download and usually master it.  

He is also able to do this with the video game consoles as well.  

I know that this is rather normal especially with the advancing of technology and how useful it can be in helping our children to learn, advance and educate themselves outside the classroom.

Yet there are times I wonder if their knowledge and abilities are beginning to loose the balance of a healthy childhood.  

I admit I have been guilty of allowing technology to entertain, teach and even at times befriend my children when the craziness of life has taken over.  

There is no better boredom buster than a great App at a doctor’s appointment, on a long trip or even to simply keep sibling peace!  

Yet has the Tech Savy talents of my children given way to loosing the connections of pre-tech times?  

How can I keep a balance of letting them advance and learn today’s technology while still keeping the fun and personal connections of times past?

It’s all about finding and keeping a balance: Tips on How To Get Your Tech Savvy Kids to Unplug.
