Why Take this Class?
Managing and guiding the ways our children interact with their digital devices is an essential part of our job as parents in the digital age.
But all too often our best efforts simply lead to fights and frustration. I created this course, based on my in-person ReConnect Parent Ed Workshops, to help every parent build a toolbox of tips and strategies to make life at home with digital devices less stressful.
All the basics of getting digital device use under control in your family. Specifically catered to parents of kids ages 5-12.
- How to manage the 'How Much, Where and When' of screen time
- How to find and monitor appropriate content for kids
- When is the right time to buy a child a phone
- Keeping kids safe online
- Guiding kids through Video Games, YouTube, Social Media
- Becoming your child's ally in the online world
- Setting yourself up as a digital mentor
And so much more!
"If I could make Julia Storm's workshops required viewing for all parents I would. Her low-key demeanor, breadth of knowledge and ability to talk about “scary” topics without fear-mongering is exactly what we need to inform our parents without scaring them."
- Erica Huls, Director of Educational Technology, Pressman Academy
