    @Team ParentCircle This is best. In fact for me and my hubby, we keep wishing that we can spend more fun time with our children. However much we spend time together, it always seems less.

    Correct, to a 2020 where we can spend more family time.Thank you.

    As soon as my toddler started to imitate me, I have challenged myself to use the gadget at the time when he is asleep. I utilise gadget time in posting my thoughts, posting my creativity appropriately in authorised groups and circles. I got to know the major difference between using more time on gadget and specified time allotted for gadget. Through my creativity, I connected with bacchaparty group and am utilising my strengths in giving practical education to them. They enjoy so much by doing it and want to be surrounded, have fun and ask for more tasks. I found my inner peace by disconnecting to reconnect with my inner innocent child.

    Our gadget free hour was so gadget free that we didn't even click pics :)
    It started off by me narrating stories to my kids followed by some childhood games of Chinese whispers, word building and secret tunnel.. my 6 year old made us roll with laughter during Chinese whispers.. Their father then took us out for a children day special dinner.. it was not a gadget free hour but a gadget free whole evening indeed :)
    We have renamed this hour as " bonding time " and pledged to include this in our daily routine.. thank u !

    @Sangeeta Rao Great :)

    Sangeeta Rao Nov 19 2019

    @Sangeeta Rao Wow! Love how you have renamed it Bonding Time. Essentially, it is a time to just enjoy each others' company and have some unfiltered fun together. So happy to know your story!

    Sangeeta Rao Nov 19 2019

    @Sangeeta Rao That truly is gadget free, Roopa. Must have been so enjoyable, just cherishing each others' company, isn't it?

    Hi All
    My daughter Rachitaa of Class 6E was given this activity of spending 1 hour.
    We played with his cousin and went for a walk. We discussed about childhood days of me and spoke about her atrocities as kid.
    We make this a.habit of talking 10 to 15 min before sleeping. Now we extended this to 1 hour. Thanks for the activity

    Education is ment for empower human to fullfil his food, shelter and save his family. So main education is farming which will Teach everything in your Life. educated Farmer ( reading, writing,and simple maths and native language learnings through mother language). Natural farming is good for human and nature.childrens should be educated through home education system.

    we remembered our school days

    Raghunath S M Nov 14 2019

    It's a good initiative #gadgetfreehour. It was difficult to have been gadget-free for one hour. But we had passed the test. We had spent the hour with our twin-kids studying in LKG. We had played with them during that hour. The kids were also joyful during that hour. It's very sad to feel that the inanimate gadgets had taken us to such an extent that we need an initiative to share time with our kids.
    Thanks,
    Parents of Girish & Girisha.

    Today evening we had a garden party with kids and enjoyed a lot... Along with gadget free, we teached kids to be eco friendly. So we carried our own plates, tumblers and water for garden party to avoid disposables.
