86% of parents feel their teen spends too much time gaming
The average age of smartphone ownership is 10 years old
1 in 4 parents say their teen knows someone with depression & 1 in 10 know a peer who’s committed suicide
Most kids spend an average of 10.5 hours a day on their screens & 4 out of 5 tweens are on social media before age 12
Due to online education, it’s almost impossible to enforce screen limits. Social media is now a critical element of healthy teen socialization
The manipulative design
of screens captures teen attention. Bad actors online know
how to exploit that.
Our kids visit and post in many virtual neighborhoods – more than we’d like to imagine.
Digital injury refers to harm resulting from screen use. Parents have some awareness, but too many risks go unnoticed until it’s too late. Screen safety is a moving target. It’s difficult to follow through without teen buy-in. Our course offers best practices from years of deep research plus creative, real-world clinical secrets from Dr. B’s practice with the most challenging teens.
Family-tested and outcome based, our Social Media Readiness Course
helps teens close risk gaps and practice healthy
psychological wellness techniques
“Parents have been telling me that they NEED a course for their kids BEFORE they get their first smartphone and social media account. – a course that’s more challenging than the watered-down digital citizenship curriculum at school.
With the stress of COVID-19 and everything else going on, kids are acting out online and offline. Recently some teens in our community were outed on a 5k+-member moms’ Facebook page for disrupting a peaceful protest. Members posted photos of the kids, their license plate numbers, and their parents’ names and businesses. When one of the mothers posted an apology for her son’s behavior, it was picked apart while members shamed her for being a bad parent. It’s gone viral and was a virtual mob scene. Sad a scary to watch.
This is a true-life example of how our kids need our help.Their brains can’t anticipate complex fallout from split-second decisions. Their online choices reflect on us and can haunt them (and you) for a lifetime.”
Dr. B has treated thousands of families just like yours for over 28 years. She also has three kids of her own! With 15 years of teaching the latest psychological research about parenting and addiction at CSUCI, her techniques are sensible, parent-tested, and science-based. Plus, her interns help her stay up-to-date with tech and trends.
Look, we’re all terrified that our kids will be the victims of online predators, porn, or screen addiction. The risks are too scary to ignore. But too often, other parenting experts seem out of touch. They either go too harsh and suggest a screen-free lifestyle; or they seem too indulgent, suggesting that talking is enough.
Dr. Bennett recognizes a screen-free life and 100% virtual monitoring isn’t realistic; and kids can’t always make sound decisions when it comes to screen use, even when they “know better.” Threatening doesn’t get us anywhere either. It damages relationships; and angry kids won’t accept parent influence. Plus, we often rely on their smartphones for tracking and communication. Yanking screen privileges is more punishing for us!
Like with other important but potentially high-risk life skills, Dr. B knows best screen practices must be taught, supervised, and managed – gradually with sensible flexibility. The GKIS Social Media Readiness Training Course offers your tween or teen the opportunity to start taking accountability for themselves, proactive instead of reactive.
With our proven GKIS Course, you won’t even realize the nightmares you’ll be avoiding. Your kids will know how to best respond to distressing online situations. Plus, they’ll gain independent resilience and you’ll build a positive parent-child alliance along the way. Dr. B believes that by teaching kids good coping skills on the front-end, you can avoid costly psychotherapy sessions on the back-end.
Isn’t that what we really want ?
A peaceful, fun home with healthy screen time.

Why is this course so inexpensive?
Dr. B loves the families she works with and has been a child advocate her whole career.

At 52 years old she made a personal commitment toward prevention. A ridiculously low price made sense to her to achieve that.

What child ages does this course apply to?
The GKIS Social Media Readiness Training Course is developed for tweens and teens. I encourage you to use your judgement if your younger child is sophisticated enough to consider online risk. We believe that if you think your child is old enough for social media, then they’re likely old enough for this course. It covers topics that you won’t find free or in school programs. Dr B works with teens, so she has a lot of training and experience knowing what is appropriate for them to know. Feel free to email Dr. Bennett with questions.
