What Parents and Educators are Saying about GKIS
Screen Time in the Mean Time provides tools to help your family reconnect, not disconnect. To do that, we have to face the fact that screens are too compelling. We are on them too much…and our kids are too. Whether you have a toddler, school age kids, or teens, you’ll learn actionable strategies that work.
If you’re looking for a screen-free parenting guide, this isn’t it. As a mom of teens and an educator, I believe our digital natives are picking up genius skills necessary to thrive in today’s world. In our house, we love each other, and we use our screens. Deprivation isn’t necessary … but balance is.
Too many parents feel guilty. We want to provide our kids with entertainment, enrichment, and protection while helping them build independent resilience. They are too often afraid to fail, and we are too often afraid to fail them. Add in screens expertly designed to capture our attention, and a healthy, balanced family life becomes even more challenging. The Home Starter Workbook will help you establish the “basics” for home screen safety. With 10 easy, actionable steps you will set you up your cooperative family tech dialogue, establish important rules and parameters, onboard your digital toolbox for filtering and monitoring, and set up home work stations to optimize supervision, creativity, and screen competence. For families with toddlers, school age kids, and teens.
