Best Buy contacted me recently and asked:
“How have computers changed/improved/affected your children’s lives?”
In short, computers have affected our family’s lives dramatically. I became an accidental stay-at-home mom when the office I worked in closed when I was 7.5 months pregnant with my first child. I had every intention of going back to work, but after having my second child only 12 months after my first I was not so anxious. I set my sights on working from home, and after searching high and low and trying out numerous positions, I finally found a career that was both challenging and rewarding.
Blogging is my creative outlet and the deals I provide do help stretch our budget, but transcription is what has supported my family through my husband’s numerous layoffs over the past two years. Both are possible because of the advent of computers, and I’m thankful that they allow me to be here for my children whenever they need me.
Have computers had a positive effect on your children’s or your family’s lives?
