WHAT IS BETTER SCREEN TIME?
We’re the family who kept their TV in the closet for over a decade; pulling it out only for the Olympics and family movie nights.
A lot had changed between 2005 and 2017.
Technology had evolved and morphed into MUCH more than television. We now carried mini-computers in our pockets. And we had a teenager.
We were a low-tech family who had to rethink our approach to screens.
We starting parenting from a place of confidence, instead of fear.
Now we share family-tested strategies with other parents so that: kids can stay kids, teens can learn to use tech as a tool (slowly!), and parents can spend less time worrying and more time connecting with their kids.
HOW WE CAN HELP YOU
DESIGN A PLAN
When is the last time you adjusted any settings on your router? How about using your router to block a device's access to the internet? Or scheduled time for the Wi-Fi to be completely turned off? If you're like most people, the answer is: never. You bought it, set it...
Is my teen ready for a cell phone? This is the million-dollar question for parents today! There is no single right answer because every family and every teen is different.
We are parents who are still learning, but we’d like to share a few strategies that have helped us make this important decision.
When we get a like on social media, it can feel a lot like getting a high five in real time. That dopamine hit feels good! While this isn’t necessarily bad, as parents we need to be mindful of how we might replace the likes on our phones, with love in our homes.
We’ve created 3 R’s to lead you to a healthy relationship with your phone AND your family.
Worry less, connect more with what matters!
