Can You Go 24 Hours Without Tech?
Can you go 24 hours without tech? If you had can up go 24 hours without your tech? Most people can go 24 hours without plugging in if forced. A friend of mine got sick of her kids being on the computer, watching television, playing videos and being on their cell phones all the time. She decided that her whole family was going to get reacquainted with one another. The whole family was going to go without all of their tech for 24 hours.
At first, this was just an idea my friend had hoping that her family would go along with it. Well, having three teenage boys who seem to be glued to their tech devices and one girl whom just can’t live without her iPod, and a husband who was worse than the kids, none of them agreed, to her idea when asked.
Made to Go Without Tech for 24
Well, my friend being the person was, was going to make her family do this whether they wanted to or not. She felt like her whole family was a little do addicted to their tech. So during the night while everyone slept she took everything even televisions and locked it all in their garage. She was the only one who had a key to the garage.
Locking everything in the garage may seem a little drastic but my friend wanted to prove a point to her family including her husband. They could go one day without it and still live. Besides all of that, she wanted her family to spend some time together and still was her last resort.
A Closer Family Without Tech
You can imagine what happened in the morning when her whole family realized what she had done. At first, they thought they were robbed. However, she told them what she had done and why she did it. No one was getting anything back for 24 hours. They were complaining and fighting at first. After all the complaining was over and done with her family did spend the day doing thing together that they normally would not have it they had their tech.
Her whole family did end up enjoying themselves. They read a book out loud to one another. The played board games and told each other stories. They cooked together and ended up having much fun. They had so much fun that now once a month they all go without their tech, and they plan out what they are going to do together.
Can you go 24 for without your tech? Would you go to the lengths that my friend did, to prove your family could go 24 hours without it?
