Kids are glued to the phone, sleep deprived, binge on video games, social media dependent, anxiety-ridden and more. Mental, emotional and physical disorders are increasing all around us. The data is clear — unfettered media access is bad for our mental health - really bad.
We created Make Your Screen Contract Work for you. It's the first realistic, proven system – for parents, by parents. Implementing a screen contract is the first step to combatting tech addiction and restoring peace to your home.
"We gave our kids phones in middle school, but quickly the screens began affecting them in disturbing ways - I was overwhelmed. Since we both work full time, we often don't get home until dinner, so constant nagging or hiding devices wasn’t an option. Marissa and Sherri recommended the right technology and helped us adapt the Screen Contract for our family. Now, we feel more in control of tech and media and we’re confident that we can manage the way screens show up in our family over time"
Regina, mom of 15 and 13-year-old girls

In 2014 I felt the negative impact of technology in my home and started building systems to combat tech addiction. As screens proliferated every aspect of life, I refined my approach and immersed myself in the science of addiction, teen brain development and parenting trends. Using this information, I built a foundation for my family to create healthy habits around tech use and maintain tech-life balance. Over the last several years, I participated in a game-changing series of productivity boot camps which gave me the idea to help parents benefit from my knowledge. After aligning with my wonderful partner Sherri - the Ying to my Yang - in 2017, we spent nearly a year to create a unique solution for all parents and we're thrilled to finally share it with you.
After having children, I chose to adapt my business career to my new priorities. I spent many years volunteering by leading public service projects and fulfilling roles in both public and private local schools. Being a problem solver at heart and having spent much time with both educators and families, I look forward to applying my experience to delivering curriculum at ScreenAge Bootcamp to help fellow parents bring balance to their homes and raise resilient, confident children.
You will feel confident that you’re guiding your child to make smart decisions about their screens, phones and tablets, even when you’re not in the same room as them.
Guide your teen to discover healthy ways to replenish his/her energy and avoid overusing easy "stress relief" in digital entertainment and social media.
Become a proactive, interested, and interactive parent - helping your kids to discover who they really are and their full potential for the life ahead of them.
Understanding your parenting style, the default methods you use to influence your children's behavior, is a critical first step. We'll help you identify how you parent and why it's important.
Before you teach your child what's important to your family, you have to know what you value most to build a solid foundation.
Uncover what you want to include in your family's screen contract and learn how others have worked to create a living document for their family.
We'll give you the tools you need to share your family's screen contract with your teens without drama.
By understanding the real struggles that your teenager lives with to balance the addictive nature of online and tech-media today, you will be able to empathize with what they are going through and finally bring balance into their life, and your's, so the tech never takes control again.
We want to help you reduce struggles and potential misunderstandings in your family as you make important changes required to achieve a life-tech balance
"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."
"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."
"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."
