I love MoM and I love everything on this site. I also love the competitions my lovely step mother (mum) sends me on Facebook and it feels like even though she is far away and working on an island that we are doing an activity together. It helps us feel connected if you like. As soon as I have my son in bed and the homework is done and regular things like washing etc I’m into my wind down screen time. Now by screen time I rarely ever watch television – in fact almost never. I keep abreast of current affairs through the internet. It’s gotten me to thinking – Is screen time going to be the next addiction? Is addiction to technology going to become a truly recognised thing like gambling now is with ads etc in the future? On this site we have already seen article upon article about screen time and technology for our children… But what about us? I find it a wonderful way to relax and enjoy everything technology has to offer, but mostly the communication on here. I can’t wait to get straight on my phone or laptop in the quiet moments when my son is in bed. I feel I get a lot of much needed support on MoM, but must confess I think I have a teeny weeny addiction lol.
