I’ve been thinking about a way to lower my family’s dependence on their smartphones. How about Phone-Free-Fridays?

So, the way it works is this; on Thursday evening, just before we go to bed, we turn off our smartphones, put them in a box and then put the box away until Saturday morning.

I’m sure it will take some getting used to, but, we have landlines, and we have computers for email etc., so why not just put down our smartphones for 24 hours, how hard can it be?
