Blogging assignment: UK family, parenting, lifestyle or tech bloggers wanted to take the Tech Timeout™ challenge

Please tell us about the product or company you would like the bloggers help with?

With Christmas being the top holiday in which family members find the use of technology most annoying according to a Foresters Tech Timeout survey, the best gift you can give this year is your undivided attention.

Foresters, a financial services provider with a purpose to enhance family well-being, is inviting families to take the Tech Timeout™ challenge ( – a daily break from technology in order to communicate more personally and get more involved in each other’s lives.

What is the blogging assignment?

You will receive a time safe (called a Jail Cell) to lock away your phones so that families can spend a quality hour together every day, particularly over the Christmas holiday period, without using technology (including ipads, games consoles, TVs etc). We want you to write about your experience with the Jail Cell and using it – how did you feel? Did it work? Did it benefit you as a family? Were you desperate to open it up after an hour etc?

Ideas of other activities that you can do as a family can be found here:
