As parents...

We know how stressful it is to navigate all of the shows, apps, and marketing that is sold to you about the best "educational" media for your child. 


As Educational Therapists...

we believe you should have the tools you need to navigate screens, media, and tech with confidence. Rather than guessing about what is best for your child, we believe you can: 

  • Become an expert on how your child's brain works and learns (it's simpler than you think!)
  • Feel clear on your screen time choices 
  • Have a tech-healthy household and raise tech-wise littles
  • Use tech to create greater bonding with your littles (rather than battles)
  • Learn what actually gets your child ahead in life...and start that process now

Ready to make your parenting life easier? 


As professionals, parents often reach out to us for help in the middle school years--after technology has fully gripped their children’s lives. While this may seem far away, it’s just 10 years down the road for new parents... 

And what you do NOW matters most! 

  • We want you to have a household where tech isn’t a battle
  • We want you to raise children who are creative, imaginative citizens (I mean, who doesn't want that?)
  • More free time, less stress time
  • You can have this, and it all starts now!
