As a parental tech consultant, I teach parents how to help their children become digitally healthy and stay safe online. I received my bachelors from the University of California at Santa Barbara. I’ve combined my psychology knowledge and my experience as a Treatment Counselor for at-risk foster youth to help countless families who have children with behavioral issues or health concerns caused by the overuse of their devices. I’ve research the best methods for parents to keep their children safe from online predators and adult film exposures.
I’ve worked with children who would throw tantrums or not be able to function without screens to find healthy coping skills. I’ve helped technology addicts set healthy boundaries and explore their interests. These problems can disappear once parents become confident discussing online safety and family technology rules. These parents can now relax, knowing their child is ready and safe for the digital age. This is the first generation to grow up with so much technology, we have to prepare them for this part of life just like any other. By learning how technology can be unhealthy, we can better set our children up for success in the future.
