Many parents are initiating an “electronic free” time such as dinner, or a family activity—or both. Doing things like having a basket for the phones and iPads, or a special box is an ideal way to encourage the entire family to “be in the moment.” Managing the electronics rather than forbidding them will teach them the necessary responsibility for their future and remind them how important their family, friends, and “being in the moment,” should be.  

True Electronics Addiction

There is definitely such a thing, and sometimes, strong help and completely breaking the habit is needed for a strong emotional and even physical recovery. Wilderness programs such as Wingate Wilderness Therapy force both teens and young adults to step back and learn more about the world and lives around them—and to learn more about themselves. To find out more, call our friendly family advocates today at (800) 560-1599.
