There were no hard feelings involved–and I haven’t stayed away completely. But I wanted and needed to cut back. Something inside me wanted a change. Summer break with the kids home felt like the perfect time. I didn’t want the short summer days with my kids wasted away by wasted scrolling.

Every so often I wonder about the long term effects of social media on parenting. Facebook is too young to know the difference between good and bad, right and wrong. No studies exist from those gone before decrying how they’d give anything to go back and chuck their phone out the window instead of their time.
I’m not gonna wait around for the research.
