Turning Life On
By Keeping Tech in Check.
Our communities bring together local parents, educators and those 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 to join our community. You can join as a Promise Member, Public Supporter or Private Supporter. Read on to learn more.
Our public promise helps to reduce the social pressure to have a smartphone by making smartphones the exception, not the rule. Viable alternatives to smartphones already exist in the market. These alternatives allow children to communicate without unrestricted, at-your-fingertips access to the Internet, social media and gaming. Let’s encourage our kids to put their devices down, and pick their heads up!
