KEEPING KIDS ENTERTAINED AND OUT OF TROUBLE: Kids Sitting in Front of the Computer is NOT Necessarily Bad– IF it’s the right page! (Guest: Holly Homer)

Texas mom of 3 boys HOLLY HOMER knows something about keeping kids entertained and out of trouble.

She is the author of two books … and the blog, Kids Activities Blog–and available to be your Talk Show interview guest!

While most moms will not quickly admit to having used YouTube or Netflix as ‘cyber babysitters,’ most have done just that.
