We’ve worked with dozens of families to sort through their screen time issues and help parents feel more confident that they’re meeting their digital parenting responsibilities. Parenting Technology can feel like a labyrinthine maze, and knowing where to begin is often the hardest part. Based on our experience, we know the questions to ask and can help you to find the path that’s right for you and your family.
Once we’ve mapped out your digital policy, we can help you put the technology in place to back up your parenting. We’ve spent years using and testing many of the best parental control solutions on the market as well as Apple’s Screen Time and Google’s Family Link. Not only do we save you time by guiding you through set up, but we also help you to optimize it based on your specific scenario. Putting controls in place helps children to develop healthy digital habits by learning that technology has an off switch. While self-regulation is the ultimate goal, it’s a learned skill that’s many years in the making. We offer parents strategies to handle tough conversations and offer ongoing support via Our Texting Line.

What Our Friends are Saying:
“I didn’t have the time to research and set up parental controls. My kids now have tech boundaries which have reduced the “arguing” in the house!”
I feel confident my kids are safe an I will continue to work the Heard It From a Friend team and would highly recommend them.”
“So peaceful in our home now that I don’t have to be the bad guy! We actually are having more time for mother/ daughter stuff, instead of being mad at each other all day.”
“I would not have been half as comfortable with my sons’ having phones without Heard It From A Friend’s help!”
