Is technology causing chaos in your home?

Technology has improved the way we do so many things. From how we work, to how we communicate and also through to how we learn. But when it comes to our kids, technology can often seem like the enemy. The enemy that causes arguments, communication issues, lack of sleep and a lot of stress. We all want to do the right thing when it comes to our kids and technology usage, but how do we know what the right thing is when there are so many opinions and advice out there!

As parents, one of the most important things we need to remember is technology is not the enemy. It will always be a part of our lives and our children's lives and offers so many opportunities and positives that were never available before. What can become the enemy - is when technology is out of control. And finding a way to create control through open communication and a shared understanding is where the solution really lies.

What you'll find in the course:

The TechClever Parents course is simple and engaging and includes self-paced modules that match the needs of digital family life and features fun quizzes, case studies, podcasts, videos, latest research, challenges to do with your child, and interactive factsheets.

  • Start and finish the program at a time that suits you

  • Includes over 50 activities

  • Compatible with all devices

  • Can be completed in as little as an hour

  • Updated content every 3 months

  • Split up into 5 simple modules

  • Activities for everyone in the family to do together

The examples are a great guide - means we don't have to think up these awkward situations ourselves, and provides a good example to readers of what can happen’

I have a 9 year old step-son who is tech obsessed and getting to the point where I felt like I needed to educate myself a bit, and found A LOT of your program super informative and very helpful when navigating sensitive topics with children.

I like that it wasn't just something you read from start to finish and get a nice email/certificate at the end to say 'well done'. You actually get to engage in the program - and you get those real 'ah-ha' moments when you complete some of the activities for parents (evaluating personal tech use etc)

Loved that the program focuses on learning about these things WITH your children. Current articles and research are a big plus for me (don't have to look yourself).
