Me, well, I had no idea the man was getting so much control. He can shut the kids’ tablets down with one click of the phone for not completing chores or schoolwork. He can limit the time they have access to the internet. It truly is an amazing way to keep the time limit for the kids and to keep them from wandering into areas that their young minds are unable to process. Except, I did not realize what also could happen. Until…...
Guess who’s phone can also be shut down?
Guess who’s laptop can also be turned off?
No blogging. No reading blogs. No commenting. No Facebook. No messenger! No internet! No surfing for recipes or news articles. Nothing. Nada. I was trying hard to remain calm. Had he intentionally done this? Surely not, I’m an adult after all. Yes, well, there are days I do not wish to adult, but that is not typically the case. I can monitor my own internet time and which websites I choose to visit.
Guess who was a sputtering wet hen when it happened?
(This is not the Disney circle rating, but you get the idea)
Additionally, there are ratings as to what is allowed. Think PG-13 or R, well, most of your blogs fall in those categories. My dismay was heartfelt when I could not visit for a few days until the situation was remedied because he was working late and could not come home and figure out which device my phone actually was on the circle. I plead my case that I need not have my phone within the circle. That went unheeded, but I did get my ratings removed. I had to go with no rating at all simply because some of the blogs literally would not come up under the adult rating.
(okay, maybe not, but that's a cute idea!)
By the way, if this is a bit sloppy, my apologies. I'm trying to get this finished and posted before a soccer game tonight and I'm not sure when I will have a chance to get back to it.
