Trending Now: GadgetFreeHour On Social Media

In this fast-paced world, over the top use of gadgets has pushed kids’ playtime to the background. There are more children glued to screens than those out on the grounds. What’s alarming is that parents are also guilty of spending most of their day on gadgets and devices. The consequence – gadget addiction and lesser parent-child bonding. Sounds familiar? We’ve all been there too!

ParentCircle has tackled this problem head on and come up with a new initiative - #GadgetFreeHour!

As the name suggests, this exclusive campaign is all about going gadget-free for an hour to ‘reconnect’ with family. In an aim to make a nation-wide impact, we reached out to parents and institutions (educational and others) to urge them to take this pledge by switching off all the gadgets for an hour on Children’s Day, Nov 14, 2019 and enjoy the joy of connection with kids! 

The campaign has been taking social media by storm, showing how much parents and institutions want this one-of-a-kind initiative to be adopted by everyone. ParentCircle brings you some of the amazing responses to the #GadgetFreeHour campaign from Twitter handles, Facebook posts and Instagram shares! Join the buzz…
