Just one more reason…

Today let’s take a look at the why behind choosing what we call worthy books, resources and influences.

Here we’re treated to a fascinating look at and comparison of the child’s developing brain and the developing internet, in a short film courtesy of the Moxie Institute.

BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks.

I liked the reminder toward the end of the film to unplug sometimes.  Our family likes to go for a walk in the woods (we like to call them hikes… they’re really just glorified strolls), make music or play board games, or card games like Uno or In a Pickle together when we’re taking a screen-break.  Our new favorite family game is Telestrations, so much fun.

What do you do when you unplug?  How do you make meaningful connections with the children in your life?
