Launch a Community
Our communities bring together local parents and leaders who care about healthy and safe technology use by our children. Through these communities, we can support each other by sharing information, resources and our best tips to help our kids manage technology instead of technology managing them. Together we can effectuate positive change around technology use by children.

There are three ways members can join your community.
Public Promise Members by Child’s Year of Graduation:
Parents listed as Promise Members have taken a public promise to delay giving their child a smartphone until at least 8th grade as smartphones easily provide access to social media and gaming. Our public promise helps to reduce the social pressure to have a smartphone by making smartphones the exception, not the rule.
Healthy and safe technology use is about more than just smartphones in middle school. That’s why we support all parents. Members listed as “Supporters” publicly support and join our community even though they are unable or unwilling to make the promise.
Private Supporters will be added to our mailing list and will have access to our local closed discussion groups but will not be publicly listed on our website.
