I love my kids and I love nothing more than making them happy. I want them to live wonderful lives and never have any struggles. However, I have learned how hard parenting can be. Sometimes you have to do things to your kids that make them hate you. Sometimes you have to do things you don’t want to do so they learn a lesson. Last week I canceled our direct star tv because my children would never play outside. Technology has become such a huge part of my children’s life that they do not actually interact with other children. They will send e-mails or chat with kids online, but picking up a ball and playing a game was the last thing they wanted to do. I decided the best thing to do was to get rid of one of the main distractions. I do not think my kids have ever been angrier with me than when the television didn’t work. We are still working through some things, but I think in the long run this will be one of the best things I have ever done for my kids.
