Right around the time I was ready to lock up our iPods and iPads because my kids were always using them, a local parenting magazine was looking for a few families to unplug for a week and share their experiences. I'm pretty sure I was the first person to sign up.
I want my kids to be able to use all of the amazing high-tech tools available to them. But I also want them to realize that there are other tools and other ways to communicate. I want them to know that their options are not limited to what's on the scroll down menu in an application.
