Ok, so I had BIG plans this Summer to finally put my kids chore chart (that took me forever to make!!) to good use! The dreams were beautiful in my head, they went something like this: children happily doing their chores and smiling as they finish them and are rewarded with time on their electronic devices (computer, wii, netflix, etc) CRASH, the sound of my dreams NOT coming true and we are only TWO weeks into summer vacation! Agh!
I don’t know about you, but I HATE how much time my kids can and want to spend on games and shows!!! If I let them they would turn into electronic robots with bloodshot eyes and mushy brains who never looked up from their devices! Ugh! Seriously, how to control it? It is so easy to let them play their video games and computer games and indulge them in their tv watching because it gives me my kid free time I desperately crave during the endless hours of summer.
