A certain family member invited us to use their place this year for the event: just a casual bbq style event outside their house.
Now that we are all set to go there, the person has set a "rule": no phones / devices to be used on the day.
Has said "put devices away or leave at home".
Has also stated no photos of their children please and certainly none on social media (fine with not posting their kids).
Bit sad though no photos of DD with her relatives.
I don't like the "being told what I can do". I think I can moderate my use of my phone for those few hours. I also want to take photos of my DD and her relatives.
There is definitely a moral undertone to this request, as the person has very strong views of how to raise children and what the rest of us are doing wrong: e.g. allow children in bikinis, photos on social media, use of school, "commercial" hobbies, plastic toys etc.
I want to whip my phone out and play on EB on the day now. Just to be difficult.
