No matter how many times we visit Times Square we never get bored people watching! While there are some very interesting people in Portland, it is nothing like the melting pot of wonderful ethnicities found in New York City! We love meeting nice folks from all over the world, sharing stories, and expanding our view of life. It is perhaps the greatest gift of travel as a family.
THE CHALLENGE OF TECHNOLOGY
How many of you struggle with technology when it comes to your kids? We now call it screen time because of the varied media devices used by our son (and us) to consume content. Screen time includes use of the iPad, iPhone, television, computer or Wii game console. To manage screen time, we have been created a contract with the help of our son.
Screen Time Contract:
- No screen time during the week unless it relates to school
- One-hour of screen time on weekend days (broken into 30 minute increments)
- Maximum of two movies over the weekend that we all watch as a family
So far so good, but we are waiting for him to turn the tables and ask us for contracts!
