If you’re like me, you constantly worry about your kids’ media consumption and the amount of time they are spending in front of screens.
And if you’re like me, you also have a hard time pulling yourself away from your own smartphone screen.
“Okay, just one more minute…” so easily becomes a habitual response to my kids as I rush to respond to one more email, check one last news link, or sit in the car finishing one last phone call after pulling into the garage.
Well, this doesn’t go unnoticed by our children. In fact, a study by Barna reveals that while Millennials incessantly text and Tweet, they feel that it is their parents’ “addictive” use of technology that inhibits quality family time!
It seems that the “Do as I say, not as I do” parenting technique still fails, even in the digital age. It also seems that our ability to exhibit self-control (a fruit of the Spirit, by the way) is at a low ebb these days; faced with all the available gadgetry, we parents just can’t seem to focus, be present, and sign off of Facebook.
We now have a solution.
Our friends over at EpicParent.tv have developed a revolutionary new tool that we recommend every family implement. The No Cell Phone Ball is a fantastic product, guaranteed to help you make giant strides in controlling tech use and guarding your family’s precious time together. Watch the minute-long promo below for more information.
Caveat Emptor: The No Cell Phone Ball can cause damage to persons and property, especially in the hands of a crack shot like the lefty in this video.
