' four children, Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie, aren't like every other kid in Waco, Texas — and not just because their parents are TV stars. Unlike most other kids, they're not going to be staring at their phones all day.
In an interview with , Joanna explained that she and her Fixer Upper husband will not give their children cell phones any time soon. "I tell the kids that you are probably not going to get a cell phone," Joanna said on ET. "We want to teach our kids that life happens outside of these devices. It's just a simple thing to go outside and connect with nature, play with your friends and get dirty."
And that's not the only piece of technology the family goes without. Despite having one of the top shows on HGTV, the Gaines family doesn't even own a television. But there's always plenty to do on the family's 40-acre farm, including lots of animals that need to be taken care of. And Joanna recently shared photos of her kids helping out with the family business — even scattering M&Ms all over her home décor line. It's amazing how much free time these kids have when they can't constantly text their friends.
