How I got my kids off facebook and onto something more worthwhile

It is frustrating to see kids get wrapped up in technology. I have come up with some strategies that are helping me to relate better with my kids and make them more productive at the same time.
1.I got my two girls -the bird whisperers to start a business -of hand taming birds for people who want a friendly hand tame bird for their young child or grandmother.
2. I started a blog with them called hand friendly birds.
3. In the process I found out what accounts they were logged IMG_0419 into and what they were doing on line and went for walks down by the river with them taking photos of Ben and the birds. I have found them very excited about the likes and comments they have been getting and there have been many opportunities in the reading and writing of posts and comments to discuss spelling and grammar.
4. this blog is doing way better than my own clarinet passion blog. It goes to show that you can get a better result helping someone else than you do for yourself.
I hope you like this blog and have nice things to say.
