Keeping My Kids On Task With OurPact

Disclosure- this is a sponsored post brought to your by OurPact, but as always,all thoughts and opinions are my own! 



In today’s age it seems like everything we does is done electronically. We pay our bills online, catch up with friends on Social Media, do research for school/work online, and we even get most of our entertainment from electronic devices.

Now, seeing that I get most of my business from people spending time on the net (Thanks for that by the way!) I love this tech savvy age. Having said that I know how important it is to have “unplugged time” which seems to be harder for kids than it is for us adults, right? Ha!  Read more…
