From Rita, mother of 4 children ages 4-19
"I downloaded the Digital Wellness Guide and booked a coaching session with Nicole to game plan on how to implement it for my family. It was perfect timing, after the summer holidays and the Covid lock downs, I needed to get our family re-focused on tackling the new school year. We had gotten really off track with bed time and study habits, and phone rules were simply out the window. When I read through the guide, I was immediately impressed but I wasn’t sure how the kids were going to react. I was really surprised when we had our family meeting last week and they actually wanted to read about the negative effects of screen time themselves and were excited to come up with solutions. Your materials are so well written and easy to understand that we were able to quickly get through it and get down to negotiations and signing the pledges. I love the way that you explain the reason for everything in the Responsible Use Pledge so that even the most cynical teenager can see that this is serious with good reasons. I wish I could attend one of your in-person support groups to keep this going! In the meantime, we have had some very good discussions about all the safety issues described in the STC manual and we have negotiated and signed our pledges and following the rewirement plans. I know this won’t be easy but I think that we are off to a great start and I am very grateful to Screen Time Clinic!"
