How many days a week are your kids involved in an activity?
Congratulations! You might be turning them into a Mini-you.
A more humane question might be how many days aren’t they doing something.
Kids average five hours a day on media. That is a far cry from a TV set with aluminum lined rabbit ears that could only get three channels. And, that doesn’t even include daily activity time.
Down time for a kid is like Quiet Time for an adult. If neither gets it, bad things occur.
Reality check: Take a look at your life. See anyone near and dear whose life is beginning to look like yours?
Be careful of what you are teaching your kids. They will learn it better than you ever thought.
They’re watching you.
