  6. Love the idea of a screen free week.
    Mine don't watch much t.v. or do a lot of games, but it would be interesting to see if we could go a whole week!

    1. That's great! We try to limit our kids but I'm wondering how much I've been really focusing on it recently so I'm glad we're doing this. For our house it's going to be more the adult's stepping away from screens too in the evenings once the kids are asleep.
