protect what matters techdetox box

TechDetox Box complements existing screen time management solutions

  • Parental controls address the problem of what’s available ON the screen
  • TechDetox Box keeps the screen OUT of kids’ hands altogether

What Is The Problem?

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:

  • Limit children’s screen time
  • Media-free zones (no tech in the bedrooms)
  • Media-free times (no tech at mealtimes)
  • Charge phones in a central location

How Does It Work: The Science of Behavior Design

  • User engagement depends on the presence of the screen
  • A phone in plain view distracts the child from all other human activity
  • A notification is a prompt to grab the phone, and be sucked into it
  • When we remove the cue (phone) from the environment, we disrupt the interface of addiction designed to hijack our kids
  • TechDetox Box serves as a commitment device that makes doing the right thing easy: stealing screen time is no longer an option
  • Self-control is a limited resource, especially for children
  • No Phone = No Temptation. The cookie jar is locked.

To Break a Habit, Make the Habit Harder to Do
