Guest Post: 8 Tips for Taming Kids Tech Obsession

You might recall a while back I posted an article related to children being addicted to technology. That post stemmed from hearing a mama ask a question during a panel at a conference I had attended. I was so enraged by her question I couldn’t keep my big mouth shut. It is so important that we do not allow our children to become so obsessed with technology that they fail to learn what life is really all about- nature, learning, socializing.

A Quiet Toddler Is Never Okay – My Story

I don’t ever try to portray myself to be the perfect mother, nor do I play one on tv. I do the best I can with the resources I have. I try hard to give my children the best life possible. Just the other day a friend said to me “You are such a great mother”. I honestly didn’t know how to respond. I am just a mom. As so many moms are.
