    The one hour assigned for gadgetfree activity was a most enjoyable time for us. After a long time in this pandemic we as a family stopped work on our respective gadgets. My kids organised family games which were very interesting and we drove and shared views on different topics. There was so much interaction between all that we continued past the allotted time. Actually we did not realise how much time we spent. Thank you team Parent circle for this as it was a memorable experience

    Dear Parent Circle Team, Thanks for choosing my son Ramanathan's entry in Creative Writing. Next I would wish to thank the team for the Gadget Free Hour term . Last year itself we had adapted the Gadget free hour in terms of switching off the gadgets but didn't spend the whole hour by playing actively,as I suppose we had to do with the school studies. This year we used it to the maximum by playing Word Link, Snake and Ladder, Ludo board games. My son had got a promise from me yesterday itself,that this week end we are to follow the gadget free hour by either reading story book or playing chess . As we both are employed,the whole day he spends his time in the morning with gadgets and waits for our return in the evening. Yesterday's event was really an interesting ,enjoyable and exciting event for my son that is why he's even planned for today's gadget free hour. Hope we'll adopt this every week. Once again I Thank Parent Circle Team.

    Gadget free hour was total fun.The whole family got around to play dark room.There was giggles and laughter while hiding and seeking.It helped us connect and make memories! Thank you Parent Circle for this wonderful initiative.

    My Dog was waiting for this moment . We had lot of fun being gadget free. The most surprised was the dog at home. Looks like very rarely she had all eyes on her. Family even extended the time by 10 minutes to enjoy it fully. I must admit the first 10 minutes was tough to see every one looking at each other as something lost
