Tired of Fighting with Your Kids About Screens?

We've Got Your Solution!


Feeling confident setting limits, stop nagging and easily control the way digital media influences your family.


Information, Coaching and Community 

We tried to get our kids off screens with apps, tools, sabbaticals and even a 30-day wilderness expedition. But the solution requires much more -- the right information, coaching and accountability. We've curated the best tools for you, added our knowledge and years of experience as well as a supportive online community.
Get Tech-Life Balance


Kids today are glued to the phone, sleep deprived, binge on video games, social media dependent, anxiety-ridden and struggle to develop social skills. 

Parents today are overwhelmed, tired of fighting, feel out of control, scared for their kids' future and often, addicted to tech ourselves.

Don't feel badly! We're the first generation of parents raising digital natives using outdated models from our own analog childhood. We need more than an app!

Be Their Digital Mentor

It’s up to us, the parents -- not our kids' peers, schools or the tech companies -- to guide them towards a healthy tech-life balance. We tried the easy ways:

  • Hiding devices? They sneak them, or go to a friends' house. 
  • Parental Controls? You need operating instructions and all families are different. 
  • Do as I say? Kids smell hypocrisy and tune out. 

Although kids won't admit it, parental approval remains  a powerful motivator in their lives, even after they leave home.

We weren't willing to wait for the tech giants to offer a realistic solution, so we created one ourselves. Our unique approach is:

  • Customizable
  • Actionable
  • Comprehensive


Get Control of Tech


"Raising two teenage girls as a single dad is tough enough in the analog world, and screens add more friction to the parent-teen relationship. It’s unrealistic to cut off the benefits of tech media  because it is how my kids stay connected to their friends. It’s a relief to have a trusted guide to coach us through the new habits to develop around tech use."



"Putting a screen contract in place has brought life back into our home. My wife and I started with the no cell phone at the dinner table, then looked at restricting time for our girls. It would not have been possible without a screen contract. Thank you Marissa and Sherri!"


"Most parents know they have to do something about screen overuse, but it’s hard to know what to do first. This course helped so MUCH! The content is excellent, the worksheets are valuable, and the way it’s delivered is truly unique. This course led me to revelations about how technology is affecting me, my children and society as a whole."


"Beyond the challenges of normal adolescence, my son is dyslexic, so he has to try 3x as hard to get good grades and he finds the work boring. Agreeing to boundaries around screen use was a huge help. His focus improved, he learned to manage his time, set goals and even got an internship in his with music producer! We’re thrilled."

"To let the forces of social media and video games loose on a developing young brain is like playing with fire. Parents need clear rules and should not be afraid of banning certain technology outright. The idea that "everyone else is doing it" is rapidly losing its validity as a counterargument..."

"We're in the midst of a natural, uncontrolled experiment on the next generation of children."

"God only knows what it's doing to our children's brains."

Your Children Want Limits

Regina's Story

"We gave our kids phones in middle school, but quickly  screens began affecting them in disturbing ways. We often don't get home from work until dinnertime, so constant nagging or hiding devices wasn’t an option. Marissa and Sherri recommended the right technology and helped us create family systems that work for us. Now, we feel more in control of tech and media and we’re confident that we can manage the way technology impacts our family over time"

Regina, mom of 15 and 13-year-old girls
