Family ties

Today, I disconnected and hid the WiFi router and told my kids and husband I wanted an hour together doing family stuff. I failed miserably. Rather than spend an hour together, they spent nearly 2 hours separately tearing the house apart for the router. Now the house is a mess and I’m still lonely. FML

I know you want to spend time with them, but you have to realize that unless they’re doing it WILLINGLY, they're not going to be happy. Try rewarding them (with their favorite food, dessert, etc) for wanting to spend time together instead of a “punishing” them (turning off the router, taking their phones, etc).

Honestly you failed miserably because of your obvious lack of knowledge about technology.

If you'd understood things well enough you'd have just disconnected in a subtle way so that "service appears to be out".

Then they wouldn't have looked for it, they'd have just had to wait till it came back on.
