A family story
The Family Pact blog

I confess, I’m hooked!

To my emails more than anything, Facebook a bit and luckily not at all to video games!
That, that’s my husband!

How, then, can we be exemplary parents given that we constantly complain about our children spending too much time in front of their screens?
Well, I try and make an effort too and I have to say, Family Pact also acts as a reminder for me.

Because credibility, that’s all we really have!
I may be addicted but I’m still realistic: I can hardly tell the boys that they can only watch Youtube or play video games for two hours at the weekend, if I remain glued to my phone and my husband is building his village on Clash of Clans!
It may seem crazy that a digital tool such as Family Pact can help to break our addiction but I promise you it’s true, addict’s word :) !

Because, at the end of the day, we all promise to keep a check on our screen time. What’s more, we’re now very (too) proud when we go as a family to a restaurant and next to us there are parents and children in mode “each one on their phone”.
A moment of congratulating and patting each other on the back which borders on being over the top, snide little remarks from the children “have you seen those children...!”
We all know that we have to stick at it, that it’s hard, that there’s always a risk of relapsing...
We’re in it together!

Why being scared of technology?

Let us return to this idea of a board of points drawn by the children at the origin of Family Pact.
They constantly tell me that I was born in the Middle Ages and wondered whether television existed in my days. So I have my revenge...

Educating your child isn't always easy!

Posted on by

Being sometimes outdated by 2 kids is a classic situation. And I know this!
Especially having the feeling of a lack of listening and at the same time not being listened to.
This is where an idea emerged...
