Did you know?

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

Why this online course?

Kids are on screen so much they often don’t recognize what’s OK and what isn’t.

The manipulative design of screens captures attention. Bad actors are expert at exploiting that.

“Digital injury” refers to harm resulting from screen use. Our kids hang out in more virtual neighborhoods than we can keep up with.

It’s a rare child who avoids digital injury without advanced education and support. School curriculums are too often “watered down,” and parents struggle to keep up until it’s too late. Dr. Bennett knows, she did the research for her best-selling book Screen Time in the Mean Time, teaches at California State University, and she’s been treating digital injuries with families in her clinical practice for over 25 years. 

Family-tested and outcome based, our Social Media Readiness Course
offers best practices from the psychological research and creative, real-world clinical secrets from Dr. B’s practice with the most challenging teens. 

Our course is right for you if ...

Your child is ready for social media - but you don't know how to prepare them

You're not sure yourself what the risks are and they don't listen to you anyway

You worry about their access to porn, predators, conspiracy theories, and cyberbullies

You're burned out on being the bad guy and want them to gain independence and sound judgment without your constant nagging

Dr. Bennett has a PhD in Clinical Psychology and is a World-Recognized Screen Safety Expert.

Dr. Bennett is a mom of teens herself and is not one to those experts who are so out of touch they insist on a screen-free life or 100% virtual monitoring. She recognizes that kids can’t always make sound decisions without the information they need to recognize risk and control their own impulses. Parents can’t do all of the work without jeopardizing a positive parent-child relationship.

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.
Connecting! Not disconnecting.

Why is this course so inexpensive?

Dr. B loves the families she works with and has been a child advocate her whole career. Rather than charge a lot for a few families, she went against expert advice and chose to charge a little for many. She’s spent her career treating digital injury and made a personal commitment toward prevention. A ridiculously low price made sense to her to achieve that.

How do I know if this is for us? If your tween or teen is prepping to go or already on social media or if they are gaming, then it’s time to have a frank and explicit talk about the risks they’re facing online. Most parents don’t know all of them, because risks are surfacing every day. With the help of my interns, I’ve been tracking them since I started practice 30 years ago. Your teen will also learn the best psychological wellness tools that I teach in my practice at $500 an hour. Total bargain. Browse through the course yourself to make sure you are OK with the course content. If you think this course isn’t for them (within 2 weeks), you can have a full refund. We are THAT confident you will be grateful your teen has had this opportunity.

How do I log in after I’ve bought the course?

If you have any trouble whatsoever, email me at DrTracy@DrTracyBennett.com.

What does it mean that I got a parent version of the course also?

We give you two versions of each course (one for tweens and one for teens):

  • The four-hour tween course with quizzes and the tween course for parents (same course but without quizzes)
  • The six-hour teen course with quizzes and the teen course for parents (same course but without quizzes)

When you log in you’ll see all four options. Your child can only get their graduation certificate after they pass all quizzes of the tween or teen course. We offer the parent versions so you can review every course lesson without having to pass quizzes. That way you can make sure you approve of all content before you have your child take it. You can take any version of the course as many times as you’d like

Won’t kids figure it out on their own?

Some will, some won’t. Just read the comments from any parent Facebook group and you’ll see that not everybody forms good judgment online. Sometimes it’s a matter of bad luck. They say there are no original ideas anymore, but we have customers telling us all the time they’ve never heard of some of Dr. B’s strategies. She’s been building them and incorporating best strategies from her work and research over 30 years of parenting, teaching, and clinical practice. That’s direct feedback from thousands of families! She knows what works and what doesn’t; her livelihood depends on it – 10 quick lessons for better screen safety & psychological wellness..

What if we are already out of control with social media? Are we too far gone?

It’s never too late, even with teens. GKIS Social Media Readiness strategies can be implemented immediately for positive change. And you’ll learn a ton so you won’t feel shut out anymore.

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 judgment 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. But since every child is different, the decision if it is appropriate for your child rests on you – just as it should be. Feel free to email Dr. Bennett with questions.

Will we get access to Dr. Bennett?

Although this course doesn’t offer coaching packages, you can always sign up for coaching sessions with Dr. B separately. The first session is deeply discounted. Also, with the private GKIS Connected Family FaceBook group bonus, you’ll get exclusive access to her Facebook live videos and can post for feedback from her and other parents. Dr. B pops in often to offer funny stories and creative suggestions that she uses with her teens and with challenging kids in clinical practice. 

Also, keep an eye on her GetKidsInternetSafe.com SAVE-THE-DATE page and attend a presentation! Or, make an appointment for an office consultation.we

How long will it take?

THe tween course takes an average of 4 hours to complete.

The teen course takes an average of 6 hours to complete. (Lessons 1-4 take about 75 minutes each to complete. Lessons 5-10 take about 30 minutes each).

We designed the courses to be self-paced. The user can take one lesson at a time, or they can jet through it one lesson after the other.

We also designed the course with mastery in mind. To move from one lesson to the other, your teen will have to pass each lesson quiz with a 70% or above and the tween will have to pass each lesson quiz with a 60% or above. Like driver’s training, you’ll know that graduating from this course means your tween/teen is certified in GKIS social media mastery.

Dr. B believes that social media readiness decreases the chance you’ll end up in a psychologist’s office due to digital injury. One can’t unsee what has already been seen. With this course, your tween/teen will be more likely to know when to steer clear of situations and come to you for help.

Don’t wait until after your child has run into trouble. Help prevent digital injury, teach psychological wellness, and let go of the parenting guilt. With our 100% satisfaction guarantee, you can’t go wrong.
