To Make ‘Parenting Technology’ Easier
Parenting in the Digital Age can feel overwhelming when navigating the challenges of screen time and social media. Many of us are now functioning as the Chief Technology Officer for our family, but find ourselves unprepared for the job and in need of back up.
We love technology for all its advantages—for how it can make communication easier and brings us endless entertainment. But we’ve also seen how it can disrupt the peace in our households and tug at the parent-child relationship. We believe it doesn’t have to be this way.
While kids may be digital natives and the ‘resident experts’, our goal is flip the message. We help parents to take charge of the technology in their childrens’ lives. Rather than lagging, we want to be leading our kids on this digital journey.
With guided expertise, we help you strike the right balance.
Heard It From A Friend is a resource platform built for parents—everything you need to ‘Parent Technology’ is now all in one place.
We’ve spent hundreds of hours reviewing the latest research from Common Sense Media, Pew Research, and the academic journals…we’ve surveyed the landscape of parental controls, evaluating dozens of options to identify the best solutions…we’ve consulted with parents and experts alike to identify best practices…and we’ve successfully lobbied Apple to give parents better tools for managing screen time. We’ve done this work on behalf of parents everywhere, all to make ‘parenting technology’ easier.
