October 16 – Unplug your Kids: Connect the Family
A new national effort to bring back family game night Thursday, Oct. 16 called “Unplug your Kids: Connect the Family.” The initiative calls upon families in America to put down their mobile devices, turn off their TVs and put away their laptops and tablets for one night to sit around the kitchen table or family room playing their favorite board games in an attempt to re-engage the family in real conversation and nostalgic fun.
The Unplug & Connect event as a way to get families to put down their devices and connect if only for a day. The virtual event is set to take place in all living rooms across the country.
“I hope parents and children come together Oct.16 and laugh and play and remember what’s most important about the family,” “Togetherness.” – said organizer Rosen, of the Carroom Co.
Families can join the Carrom Unplug event by sharing their pledge and agreeing to unplug on the Carrom Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/carromcompany.
