What Happens When All Electronics Go Off In A House

A mother of three from Australia has found out what can happen to your family when your turn off the TV. Susan Mosher from Perth, Australia, took away from her teenagers their TV, cell phone, internet, and video games for a period of six months. Then she wrote a book about it called, "Our Winter of Disconnect." Through that experience, Mosher says her family rediscovered what life was like before Google, Facebook or iPhones. She says the electronic depravation remarkably improved her kids academics, made family meals possible again, helped the kids sleep at night and encouraged them to listen to each other.
