About TechDetox Mom:

Hello, I am Kate. I am a mom of three beautiful kids, and 90% of my parenting for over a decade has been focused on preventing them from turning into digital zombies. I am passionate about figuring out how to solve what seems to be the biggest parenting problem of our time – screen time management – for my family and for others. TechDetoxBox was created to help my fellow parents understand how serious the Problem of digital media overuse really is, and to find the best Solutions to protect our children from the harmful effects of too much technology. 

I am not a scientist, I do not have a research lab in a big university. I am a practitioner of the craft of screen time management, because I have no other choice. I live with 3 test subjects 24/7, and I need to protect them from harm – with a passion of a mother bear.

It’s my own children whose well-being is on the line. I have skin in the game. 

At TechDetoxBox, we do our field research daily – it’s all around. We observe the relationship with technology our kids, their friends and classmates have. We ask our fellow parents to share their best practices of screen time management, what works for them, and what they struggle with. We talk with school counselors about the effects digital media has on the mental health of students. We read books and research on parenting, psychology, philosophy, education, everything that experts have to say about screen time management and children’s well being, and summarize their research into practical actionable strategies. We collect screen time management wisdom from every source and share it with others. We try different strategies, make mistakes and learn from them, and course-correct. 

We are committed to help solve the problem of tech-induced “human downgrading” that is consuming younger generations. Our kids will live life alongside your kids, and helping all children build a healthier relationship with technology will improve the quality of life for their generation, and generations still to come. 

TechDetoxBox is a central resource where parents can get free advice on all things screen time management. Our mission is to help children and adults prevent digital addiction and rediscover the beauty of the real world.

Power To The Parents!
