Have your child pick a location within walking distance of your home and select it on your device’s map program. Then let your child either hold the device or be in charge of showing the family how to walk to the destination. It is a fun way to teach your children that north and south are directions and are not actually up in the air or down on the ground. They will learn which direction they must walk to go north, south, east and west once they leave the house. Being able to read and understand compass directions and then follow them is an important life skill.

Another way to use technology is to allow your children to text family members using Skype. Children can get free Skype accounts and practice writing by sending text messages to family members. Parents can set up the accounts to that the children can only send and receive messages from parents and siblings. Believe it or not, the children will like being able to talk with their parents from all over the house without having to yell. Don’t be surprised when they text you with snack requests from their bedrooms instead of yelling down ot you in the living room.

Of course watching movies on a smartphone or tablet is a great way to bond with a spouse or child. The smaller screens mean people have to get closer to each other. There is nothing like sitting inches from one another and enjoying a movie together to create a bonding experience.
