Video Game Lock Up

My kids are video game addicts!  I was having a real hard time restricting them. I felt out of control! My kids were missing out on life,  always being sucked into Minecraft   I tried different ways, like no video game Wednesday.  We would do a family adventure instead.  It faded away in time. We have tried many rules but none of them stuck. We found a solution that works and now the kids can be kids. Life is in my control with a precious little key.

Needed:

Tool box

Lock and key

Power bar

Drill

Drill a whole in the side to enable you to charge the electronics when they are locked up if you want.

Today is a snow day and they promised to help me around the house and not make any messes. It’s beautiful outside so a cross country ski is definitely the plan.

Good Luck to all the parents who’s kids are addicted to electronics!

  1. You go mom! It’s a great idea, I’m getting out the old tool (art) box. My guys love it outdoors, they just need to be kicked out sometimes. Turn off the devices, and sure, lock them up, why not. Love it!
