Once a year, on World Children’s Day, we encourage all families to observe #GadgetFreeHour between 7:30 pm and 8:30 pm.
During this hour we urge parents, children, and their families to switch off all gadgets and spend time with each other – laughing, eating, playing, chatting, and experiencing the joy of connection.
#GadgetFreeHour 2022 is for every family and there are various ways each one of you can be a part of this global movement. Join hands with us and help us spread the word within your community.

My younger son was the teacher and we were all students during #GadgetFreeHour. I have never seen my wife laugh so much.
I am busy almost 365 days because of my business, but today our daughters asked us to play with them, on their teacher’s request. We enjoyed a lot and realized what we are missing out in our daily life. All credit goes to #GadgetFreeHour 2019.
We ate dinner on the porch and enjoyed the cool breeze. Then, my son played the guitar. Our phones, TV, and other gadgets were switched off. The hour flew by pleasantly. We had a good time.
My mother was very emotional. She said to specially thank you for this #GadgetFreeHour. We have not spent time like this together (my parents, my child, my wife and I), as a family, in at least 4 years
My son went from saying, ‘No Chance’ to #GadgetFreeHour, to saying, ‘Can we have #GadgetFreeHour again tomorrow?’ after we spent a fun hour of playing together.
Thank you for this wonderful initiative by the ParentCircle team. Got to know about my daughter’s (1.5 years old) skills and her grasping power. We were amazed to see her talent. We played many interactive games.
