Where is the line your family won’t cross?
This isn’t controversial, your child should not have access to the internet everywhere at all times.
The Smart Families Mission
It is the mission of Smart Families to help parents and schools create a safer, healthier, and happier life for our children and families by creating a community where it’s easy to live without smartphones. We provide world class education on neuroscience and physiology to both parents and children to help them navigate the dangers surrounding all forms of manipulative uses of information technology. We empower families with the practical advice and the leadership required to change the status quo.
One family cannot do this alone. We know that almost all parents already want to do this, but current trends show they are succumbing earlier and earlier to the incrementalism of technology creep and peer pressure. There is strength in numbers. The first step is to create a unified community at your school with common expectations of no smartphones until at least after 8th grade.
