Why You Might Need A Tech Time Out

Does your phone beckon you to check texts, emails, facebook, twitter, instagram, and pinterest every 5 minutes? Well, it's time to give yourself a technology time-out! Take your phone, put it away in a drawer somewhere, and focus your attention on what you really want to be doing for the next few hours. Play with your kids! Blast the music and paint your toenails! Do some yoga! Whatever floats your boat, but set a time that you must be phone-free, and stick with it. You might go through withdrawal symptoms at first, but you'll recover!

What Happened When Kids Gave Up Their Screens For A Week

Jen loves to laugh, write, create, and pro-create. By day she works as a writer/producer in the television world, before turning into a multi-tasking entrepreneur by night. When she isn’t writing, producing, or doing comedy, she can be found making babies (who end up being surprisingly adorable. Who knew?)

Jen loves to share her adventures in parenting in the hopes that it makes you (the cared for reader) feel less alone. She's not afraid to get messy, or talk about the messy; in fact, she prefers the messy. Jen lives by the motto, "I'll show you mine if you show me yours." Some people take her literally. She gets flashed a lot.
