How to Tame Your Kids’ Technology Habits

They’re obsessed with their iPhones. Texting at the dinner table, scrolling through social media instead of having a conversation.

I’m not talking about your kids: I’m talking about you! And it doesn’t matter how old your kids are. You’re setting a model of technology use.

When it comes to technology, your kids are watching your every move and see how utterly obsessed you are with your iPhone. Mom and Dad: It’s time to set limits on you! Here’s how to curb your technology use and get your kids onboard. Put the phone away when:

Having dinner, bath time and bedtime. I mean, put that device in another room. Turn off the ringer. Set your timer from 6 to 8 p.m. or 5 to 9 p.m., whenever you have family time. Think your clients or work will need you? Let them know in advance that you spend time with your kids between 6 to 8 p.m.They’ll most likely respect your commitment.

Driving. We all know it’s a safety hazard, and you don’t want your kids to think it’s ok to text and drive. So, don’t do it yourself! Hook it up to your Bluetooth and put that phone in the backseat. If you need to use GPS, set it before you leave the driveway. No excuses!

Getting out the door in the morning. You may need to check texts and emails, but it’s going to all be there once you get to the office. Find five extra minutes in the morning to spend time with the kids, even if that means you have to wake up earlier. (Sorry, I know that’s not easy, but trust, it’s worth it.)

How can you get to this place? I’ll help you get there one step at a time.

I’m introducing a new online program that kicks off August 16 to help get you where you want to be. To help you bring peace into your home.

You’ll get lots of personal attention (three private sessions), small group discussions (six sessions), amazing content and you can do it all from the comfort of your home.

After this course, you’ll be able to:
  • Focus on one or two behaviors at a time to keep things simple
  • Put together a solid plan and a simple script
  • Get rid of the “‘gray areas” so you know when to use your new skills
  • Practice ways to help you stay calm
  • Help you realize what is age-appropriate and what’s not
