I have taken the kids computer away.  Not because they did anything wrong more because that's all they do. Am I setting myself up for meltdowns yeah I know I am, but not only the little ones but Roger needs to learn to entertain themselves another way. You can't always have a screen in front of you. While the little ones will go play outside or something Roger will read a book. So far day two and no meltdowns from Roger yet. Besides at some point this summer I am going to have to take it in and have it fixed which means it will be gone for at least a week. Motherboard is crap along with the hard drive oh and the keyboard is losing keys. It would almost be cheaper to buy a new one but i just don't have the money for that and Roger will need it by the time he goes back to school so maybe if I fix one part at a time we will be able to pull it off.


  1. Taking things away is one of the hardest things we do as parents. You are doing the right thing and you will survive this. I think that the more calm you stay about it, the more they will. Good luck on your repairs!

  2. ^^ I agree with Jackie- sounds like it's time to start a new pattern in your household. :)
