I live in a house of four boys and one thing that I have learned is that my boys love technology. It’s just in their blood. I remember my oldest son sitting at the computer at the age of three and designing pictures in Paint. Now, they are spending time in elementary school learning coding and creating class websites. At home I have to set limits on the amount of time they spend on various forms of technology, but one thing I am learning to embrace is that technology isn’t going anywhere, so we might as well embrace it and find ways to #ShareAwesome and use it in a positive way.

When I no longer hear, Mom, mom, mom, MOM, MOM!!, 5, 793 times a day, then I’ll be happy. [Read more...]
