Ditch The Drama Around Kids Digital Devices

Resolving Family Conflict Around Screens

A Seminar For Parents


  • Are you tearing your hair out dealing with screentime or digital device use in your home?
  • Are you finding that no matter what you do your child is sneaky and finding ways around your blocks and locks?
  • Perhaps the begging the pleading the arguments are turning your home into a digital battle field!

Families all over Australia are struggling to keep control of digital device use. It might be your families issue is about screen time limits – never putting their phone down, or your child is not focusing on a task without distraction, or maybe you are having arguments about the games,apps or websites your child uses. Whatever it is, you may feel like your child’s device use is creating a toxic atmosphere in your home. The arguments are distressing and intolerable.

What About Just Blocking Everything!

Even if you think you have solved all arguments due to strict parental controls to block sites and set times, at some point your child/teen needs to self moderate their digital device use, so that they can eventually be responsible users no matter what device they are using and where ever they are.

Giving Up Is Not An Option Digital Technology Is Not Going Away

Helping your child develop skills for responsible device use is not something that most parents have experience with. Today’s parents are not only trying to keep up with their children’s online use, but are struggling to supervise it, especially when there are blurred lines between using these devices for entertainment, socializing and for school use.

Learning how to have more positive experiences with technology in your home without the drama will help everyone have better relationships in your family.
