I love the writings and musings of Elizabeth Foss and her mighty blog, In The Heart of My Home. She is a lovely mother to nine children of varying ages,and wrote this all-encompassing post about “Screen Rules”. I do hope you check it out: http://www.elizabethfoss.com/reallearning/2013/07/screen-rules.html
Some of these rules are really wonderful for all of us, especially as homeschooling mothers. Wouldn’t life in your home run more smoothly if your computer or phone was tucked away by 9 AM and not taken out again until school and chores were over? And, I really appreciate the integrity represented here as the public image created on the Internet should always be what a person really is in his or her heart. I know many of my readers have younger children, but this would be a great list to tuck away and bring out for discussion with older children when the time is right.
The list is created by parents that has intentions. It’s amazing and inspiring.

This is very good.
What a great and important article. We’re not anywhere near that kind of media exposure but I will print it out to keep as a fantastic reference for future boundary setting and conversations.
Brilliant Carrie! Thank you for sharing this. I love Elizabeth’s sense of humour and style of writing too! It’s beautiful. And what a treasure her serendipity is – you’re a wonder for linking off to this amazing resource. Thank you 🙂 xxxx
