Technology is becoming more and more integrated into our lives. Email, social media, streaming tv shows, text threads; they can all be good things when managed well! We encourage you to have a conversation with your spouse or your teenager or your child about how to use the technology. "Why do you spend time on social media?" "What is your favorite show?" "Who you do stay in touch with the most?" Then try setting some of these boundaries in your home to make sure technology isn't controlling your interactions!
