Are you Will Ferrell The Smartphone-Addicted Dad?

Love this from Common Sense Media’s #DeviceFreeDinner campaign.

Even though I’m probably a little more like this…

 

We’re not bad at having a device free dinner… but its not like we have a teenager… Could I actually be Will Ferrell?

While I’m not sure how well it works for families with little little ones, if you have concerns, or just want to find out abit more about the affect of using Digital technology on family life, I recommend giving Mark Ellis’ Digitox a read.

Digitox is split into two sections; The first is looking at why taking a break from digital can be good for you. The second looks at what happened when Mark decided it was time for his family to take a one day break from digital living – every week.

Lesson 1. Plan what you’re going to do with your time in advance.

#MySundayPhoto – Going Free Range

Going Free Range at Greendale farm

One of a couple of the chickens wondering around by the play area at Greendale Farm near Exeter in Devon. This picture was taken through the fencing around the edge of the play area.

Considering they have loads of really free range chickens in their fields, this guy and his friends must like the extra level of freedom or something.

#MySundayPhoto – Looking Up

This is from a brighter moment earlier this week; while we were playing playing on the trampoline the Little One kept looking up shouting, “Go Away! Go Away!”

I kept looking up and all I could see were these clouds.

It seems on closer inspection there were also a load of flies, way above both our heads.

But I kept paying attention to the clouds.
