In my house … with my boys … this can only mean one thing … excessive Internet usage.
My Internet provider kindly sent me a courtesy email yesterday to let me know that we … and by we I mean them ... have used three quarters of our monthly data allowance.
Three quarters … and it's only the 9th of January.
We have a very generous monthly data allowance … and they have used three quarters of it … and it's only the 9th of January.
So I've banned them.
No online gaming.
So far today they have ridden their bikes … watched a movie together … reconnected with the kids that live down the road. They've been to the park … played cricket with other kids from the neighbourhood and ridden to the local oval to meet friends and play soccer.
I should have thought of this years ago!
