Our hut in Belize is below. Kids had much less stuff.
Rule 1: No Cell Phones or Texting
Rule 2: No Electronics
Rule 3: Prepare and Eat Healthy Meals Together
At first they HATED it, but then surprisingly, the teenager admitted he did not miss texting, and enjoyed having meals and getting attention from his parents.
Listening to Walsh reminded me of the days when parents, (especially mothers) didn’t work and had more time and energy to prepare home-cooked meals and nurture their family. Perhaps that’s why in so many third world countries, with no stuff, families are much closer and they rely on each other and their community of friends and relatives for entertainment.
Is western society losing close family ties? What do you think?
