If you find your children staring at you with eyes that long for you play with them, or you look up and glance at your husband and he is gazing at you with that look of "Will she ever get off that device?" Those are your red flags that enough is enough. You must put down your electronic devices and spend quality time playing and reading with your kids. Your husband has needs that you are responsible for meeting. They need you.... unplugged from the world... and ready to listen to them.
It can be difficult to set times to work on our blogs, or to put down our phones when we get 20 notifications, but we have got to be intentional about putting limits on our use of devices. I can't tell you how many times I have had to ask my children to repeat what they have said, or to wait one minute while mommy read this, due to my overuse of social media. It is addicting. I am not proud of myself. I have to tell myself that I will never get these moments back with my children. They will only be this age once, and oh my it goes by so quickly. You blink and they are grown.
