You’re sitting down to dinner and — buzz buzz! — your phone starts vibrating. You’re tucking your kid into bed and – squawk, squawk! — an app begs to be played. It never fails; technology can interrupt our most treasured family moments.
Common Sense’s latest blog post, 3 Places Families Should Make Phone Free, offers practical advice about how to help tackle this dilemma. And, if you want to kick-start conversations with friends and family around social media and technology use, host a special Bytes & Bites Community Media Dinner. Here’s a link to a comprehensive guide, co-created by Common Sense and The Family Dinner Project. It lays out a full game plan to help you create an evening filled with adults and kids sharing perspectives, discussing hot topics, and learning more about each other’s experiences.
