Disconnect from technology and reconnect with your kids for Mother’s Day

The Internet is an amazing place, and social media allows us to connect with people in ways we never before dreamed of. However, just because you can post tons of photos and share your life online daily doesn’t mean you should, and you could be missing out on important time with your kids by doing so.

This article from She Knows discusses how easy it is to get lost in social media. By taking and posting photos you end up documenting moments rather than experiencing them fully. Memories aren’t made through photos and videos, they’re made through the experience.
