Parents should quit the internet!
This past weekend I spent an entire day at an attractions park with my husband and our two children. Because my cell phone only had 10 percent of its battery life left, I avoided it the entire day just so I can use what was left for directions to help us get back home later that evening. And I’ll tell you that just because of that reason alone, I ended spending a wonderful day with my family.
I didn’t realize it at the time, but not constantly checking my phone several times a day was good for not only my soul, but my mental health, too. Yet, the moment we returned home and I started checking all of my emails and social media apps, I started to feel stressed.
And that’s why comedian and celebrity father Louis C.K. is telling parents to do what he’s been doing – and that’s quit the internet!
Louis CK says he has learned the value of putting down his phone and actually paying attention to his kids.
