Discover the "6 Digital Parenting Secrets" That Helped Me Prevent Screen Addictions In My Children And Overcome Their Child's Screen Addictions For My Clients. Happening on March 10, 2022 (Thursday) at 8 PM Singapore time/7 AM Eastern time!

Hey, it's Jessie, I am the founder of the Digital Parenting Club. I have spent 14 years working in the cyber security field and am a mother of 4 children. When the pandemic came and everywhere was in a lockdown in March 2020, I knew I need to do something to prevent screen addiction in my children. My children had to stay at home and resume their learning journey by adopting to the online classroom. It means they will be spending most of the time with the screens. I was worried about screen addiction and have seen many parents struggle with their child's excessive screen time or screen addiction. I put everything I know about mindfulness, parenting, internet safety, and habits to "digital parenting" them. I discovered it worked so well.

I helped parents to help their children to overcome screen addiction, and to nurture their children to use screens responsibly and safely.

This, in return, formed deeper connections and therefore, happier families.

This is for you if...

1. Your children are addicted to their smartphones, iPad, Games, YouTube, or even Social Media so they end up neglecting their homework, chores, and sleep.

2. Your children do not want to listen to you anymore and it seems that no matter what you say doesn't land on your child's ears. You can't connect with your children and there is a big disconnect in your family.

3. You lack knowledge in parenting children in this Digital Era. Back then, your parents do not have the same struggle as you.

4. You feel emotionally resistant to your children and their smartphones, iPad, games, YouTube and therefore constantly having arguments or even fight with your children.

5. You can't take away these devices as it is part of your children's lives and even school are moving to technology-based learning, and you can't figure out how to "fix" your children's addiction.

And you want to:

1. Help your child to overcome their addiction from smartphones, iPad, games, YouTube so your children can GAIN BACK their childhood, and create more memories with YOU.

2. Deepen connection with your children… and make your children feel that you are the best parents so they come to you for any problems, uncertainties, and happiness.

3. Empower your children to use the screen responsibly and safely so your children use these devices for a better future for themselves.

4. Reduce your child's screen time even though they are not addicted and even prevent them from being addicted to screen.

5. Learn and apply Digital Parenting so you can use these fundamentals regardless of what new technology comes out.

In short: You want to help your children to overcome screen addiction or reduce their excessive screen time, empower them to use screens responsibly and safely. You wanted to build a better relationship with your children.

Below are some of the incredible stories of how our clients help their children overcome screen addiction and empower their children to use screens responsibly and safely.

Anyway, I Am Doing This Because…

I was once in your shoes.

Believe it or not, there was a time when I, too, was not very good at parenting or digital parenting.

But after encountering many events in my life, I was able to realize that I was repeating the same parenting style as my mother. I do not want to repeat the same cycle, passing down wounds and trauma to my children.

Instead, I wanted to deepen the connection and realize my goal in parenting that made us a more connected family and eventually discover the strategies to prevent screen addiction in my children.

I then help parents to break their child's addiction from the smartphone, iPad, gaming to nurturing good screen habits in their children.

Seeing how this method I developed amazingly worked for my family and my client's families, I want to help more people and have them experience the same or even greater success in parenting their children in this digital era.
