Helping parents save their kids from screen addiction and reconnect their families.
Our goal is to help you discover real solutions to the screen conflicts in your home. From your son’s video game coma to your daughter’s smartphone obsession, one thing is for sure, screens are kidnapping our kids, taking them away from their families, and stealing their childhoods. And we have the solutions.
From that first feeling in your gut that something isn’t quite right to a more obvious problem, we have been in your shoes. We have suffered through the confusion, done the research and have come out on the other end with real answers. Hundreds of families have benefited from our programs and we are so glad to be able to share it with you. Say goodbye to the days of exhausting screen conflicts and let us help you to reset your screen habits, reconnect your family, and reclaim your kids!
