Digital Detox

Activity:  Pick a day that you and your tween pledge to do a digital detox – meaning no devices for a full day (or if that is unrealistic, pick an amount of time that feels achievable)!

At the end of the detox, reflect with your tween:  What did you do with your time instead of being online?  Did you have FOMO?  Did you feel disconnected? Did you feel relieved?  You and your tween might come away with a new sense of the role that social media plays in your lives.
