About 3 years ago, I notice a growing trend in the world. No matter where we went, there it was staring us in the face. Children and teens holding electronic devices up to their faces, not being a part of their family's outings or even talking. I think it's almost creepy...they almost become zombie like.
Mr. Sonboul and I have made a conscious effort to unplug our kids from electronic devices whenever we are out and about. In the beginning it was a nightmare. They wanted to play the Wii all the time! We even noticed they would look over the shoulder of a stranger if they saw them on their phones playing a game. We will be the first to admit that technology is AMAZING and getting better every day, but when does it become too much?
This growing passion came from watching a simple message in a movie. Yep, I'm talking about Wall-e. I completely see the next few generations getting that bad and it scares me 100%. Is it just me fighting this battle? Am I the only one that doesn't allow my kids to have a DS? Am I the only one that doesn't allow our kids to use an iPad in the supermarket?
What happened to talking face to face?
Do you agree or disagree?
Tonight I weigh in at WW and yet again, I'm feeling a little nervous.
I've done the work, but this week has been hard. We have had workers in our home, replacing the floors and that is right where I Zumba :( Last week I lost 1.2 lbs and I'm not going to lie, it ticked me off. I really want to break through 290 lbs. REALLY BAD! I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow.
