In an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, Joanna spoke about why her children aren't raised like many others nowadays and how technology doesn't play a big role in their home!
"I tell the kids that you are probably not going to get a cellphone. 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."
Instead of focusing on cell phones, iPads and computers, the Gaines children spend their days playing outside and exploring the world.
According to the Pew Research Center, 24 percent of teens are "almost constantly" online due to their smartphones. This is something Chip and Joanna want to stop in their home!
They want the kids to be raised with classic values and focus on what's important, not the distractions that technology poses!
