Have you heard of Susan Maushart? She is a single American mother of three who, after reading a book by Henri David Thoreau, decided to conduct an experiment on a back-to-basics concept. She and her three teenage children lived without digital technology for 6 months! That was the experiment. She then wrote a book about their experiences. Interesting concept, but when I tried to imagine what would happen if my daughter and I would do this, I sort of froze. How did she get the kids to do this and is still alive to write about it?
