The Utah Department of Health is sponsoring a week-long event called Unplug ‘n’ Play that encourages children to Unplug from video games, TV, computers and respirators. OK so they can keep the respirator plugged in…but you get the idea. The event kicks off tomorrow (April 14) but the official uPnP week is from Apr 23-29.
With a son who loves video games (/sniff I’m so proud of you son) I fully understand the need for them to “unplug” every now and then and, GASP, go outside! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve caught my son playing air guitar hero lately…I think the unplug even might be good for him.
With that said, I officially give the Utah DoH’s uPnP event my stamp of approval. I’m sure they’ll be happy to learn that they have received this lofty honor.
