Wanting to get others on board with making screen time better?
Andrea would love to help you spread this message and create a community of tech-healthy families—live or virtual!

Hi, I’m Andrea Davis!
Founder of Better Screen Time
Five years ago I sat across the kitchen table telling my oldest daughter I made a mistake giving her a smartphone too soon.
Since then through online courses, I’ve helped 1000+ parents find a way to have a healthy relationship with their screens, let their kids be kids, and teach their families values.
I would love to help you do the same.
Her message of fostering family relationships with open communication and practical tips to guide kids’ readiness and ongoing use of screens resonated with our community.

signature topics I can speak on at your next event
Creating a Tech-Healthy Family
Is your audience tired of screens taking over? Are they wondering how to help their kids thrive in a digital world? Let’s give them the confidence and tools they need to tackle the tech head-on with our Tech-Healthy Family Formula. This formula provides five steps parents can take to help reduce screen time, restore family time, and finally feel peace of mind.
Parents will learn how to:
- Create a family tech plan with their kids
- Take a slow-tech approach to introduce technology
- Teach their children about digital dangers and distractions
Untangling Teens & Tech
Teens today have most if not all of their life wrapped up in a phone or device. Our job as parents is to help untangle them! In this talk, I share ideas for your audience to support their teen as they discover what a healthy relationship with tech looks like in the digital era. Our teens need us now more than ever! Through connection and open conversations, give your teen a sense of self stronger than any screen.
Parents will discover how to:
- Initiate “teen tech talks” with topics around mental health and personal values
- Prepare their teens for the dangers they might face online
- Instill in their teens the skill of concentration, focus, and screen time management
#itsyourchoice—Choosing What Matters To You, Not Your Device
The choices we make hold a lot of power in our lives. The sooner our youth understand this, the sooner they can develop strong skills that set them up for success in the future. For students ages 10+, I present mindset shifts and have questions to help them reflect on how to become the best version of themselves beyond their devices, all through the choices they make every day.
Students will walk away with:
- An eye-opening exercise that reveals how much screen time eats up their day
- Suggestions for ways to connect and create online instead of over-consume
- Prompts to better understand how to honor their emotions over sending emojis
The presentation was packed with research, information, and tangible solutions around navigating the inevitable screen time issues in the home. She has taken what can seem like such an overwhelming topic and created solutions and tips that are simple and practical. Thank you Andrea, for inspiring us to do better—for leaving us prepared, motivated, and hopeful that we can create our own tech-healthy family!
