Thought of the Day: May 21, 2018 – Family Using Technology
Have you ever thought, “How is my family using technology?”
I believe if you and I use technology correctly we can bring family unit closer overtime. With all we have available, look for ways to make family time more enjoyable. Do not let technology be bigger than the family time it should be creating.
Every day you and I get more done, so why not look for ways for the family to get more done as a unit?
One benefit technology creates is the ability to free up time. With your time spend it learning about new and coming technological changes coming.
The applications on your phone allow you to learn a new language, cook and play interactive games together.
Why not make your living room or bonus room, a place to learn? Put on a documentary and then discuss it as a family.
Since kids are interacting with technology before they learn to crawl, help them learn important things at an earlier age.
Are you planning a trip in the coming months?
Give this a try. Let your kids do the research. You’ll be surprised what they can do. Not only will this free up your adult time but it will give them responsibility.
If you do not have kids, you and your spouse can look up two different things at the same time, compare it and decide together. Technology allows you to work as a team.
What about when your making phone calls? The family can use all the different technology to stay in touch. Texting and phone calls make it easier to connect with loved ones.
Many businesses are utilizing advancements in technology and making it easy to find unknown family members and heritage.
If you want to be a family using technology, I recommend creating a family blog. This will be the place everyone can contribute to the success of the website. The blog gives the family time to do some creative writing, devote family time together and create a following. Not to mention the website can be monetized and you can even make money with your family business.
Don’t let all this technology tear your family apart. When everyone in the family is using a handheld device, who is paying attention to the family? It is important to have rules around the usage.
Rule like no electronic devises to the dinner table and no eating in front of the television create time to bond with the family.
Each one of these ideas is easy to implement and you can see positive results tonight! So what are you waiting for? Take the steps you need to and create the kind of family using technology you need to.
