The Scrolling Bread of Idleness

A friendly reminder both to myself and you. What will our children remember about us? ????????
Will they look back on their childhood and remember us glued to our phone? Or will they remember that mom was always reading her bible? Will they remember that we were distracted by an electronic device or tv? Or will they remember us working hard unto the Lord?????????
Our children are watching us. Devices can be a terrible distraction from our children and our responsibilities. ????????
Some practical advice on how to minimize device addiction:????????

  • Turn off all unnecessary notifications????????
  • Delete or set screen time limits on apps that are time burglars ????????
  • Use the “focus” setting on your phone to silence notifications????????
  • Set screen time reminders/trackers????????
  • Purposely leave your phone in another room when you are with your kids or family to avoid the temptation????????
  • Take regular breaks from social media????????
