Pregnancy & Parenting Parenting

I already have a son who is 9 and grew up with no technology and he is the most amazing boy and I love that I raised him the way I did. I plan on raising my future children the same way, on a farm with horses, cows, goats, chicken, pigs and more. He loves hunting, fishing and riding his dirt bike and 4 wheeler. He...

I think it’s good to let them have 30 minutes of screening time a day, or perhaps let them have 3 hours of screening time one day a week. Playing computer games is not bad for anyone if it’s moderate.

Now that is what You call real parenting.

My kids are going to be raised the old fashioned way as well,

Childhood should be outside playing from dawn to dusk and not on the iPad etc etc

That’s the way I was raised as well with good old fashioned values.

It is good, but he will need a certain amount of technology to be competitive in the job market.

He's 9 and has a 4 wheeler and a dirt bike ....Best get him a speedboat soon too !... Keep getting him everything ! Cheers !

He did NOT grow up "with no technology." If he hunts, then he uses bows and arrows, or firearms, both of which are technology. Dirt bikes are technology. Gardening tools are technology. Farms (agriculture) is made of lots of types of technology. You're a fcuking idiot.

I think your child is going to have a hard time adapting to more advanced levels of education, and particularly out in the working world. Not being technologically fluent puts him ad a disadvantage compared to peers who are comfortable with it.

It's important to instill a love of reading at an early age. But we live in a technological era. You can't shelter him from that forever. Sooner or later you have to teach him how to responsibly and safely use computers and the internet.

I tend to agree - BUT he is missing out on technology and when he goes into the real world of work, that will hold him back.

Last I checked, most farmers have the internet and telephones. This isn't the 1930's. Rural electrification is no longer big news ...

They need it to do their job and connect with the contemporary world, just as everyone else does.

You can live on a farm with your children and still give them access to basic education. (Unless you're going to be able to find the time to home-school, along with all YOUR 24/7 farm chores, he will need the internet for school. And even home-schooling usually benefits from internet access. Rural areas tend to have small public libraries, so the internet provides access to more vital information.)

I think it’s great. I wish my little brother lived live without technology. He revolves around a computer screen all day long. It has started to teach him bad things he shouldn’t know at this age, and he already starting to get self conscious about his body. It’s horrible, and I think your way of parenting is way better. I think more parents should do it too!
