Are your kids spending to much time in front of the television?
Or on their electronic devices. Kids today are smarter and quicker when it comes to computers, using the internet and even searching things up on Youtube. But what happened to good old fun?
It’s time to put away the devices and turn off the television while still keeping the boredom away.
