Modern Parenting Reboot
Modern parents are struggling to parent offline, let alone online – even though every day brings more insight into the toll that social media and gaming is taking on our childrens’ mental and physical health. We see it on the news, in our schools, and yes – on our own social media feed! We talk about it in parent groups, on dinner dates, and at sports functions.
But somehow, we just don’t know where to start, or haven’t had the time, or have good intentions but don’t get around to putting boundaries and safeguards in place to stop the worst of this digital age from impacting the ones we love the most.
Mandy Herold (The Connection Coach) and Kate Farina (Be in Touch) team up in an interactive and thought-provoking conversation around what happens when parents get it wrong, and what is possible when they get it right. Parents leave knowing how to get it right by –
✅ Getting on the same page as parents and as a family
✅ Reducing the anxiety around tech use and misuse
✅ Being clear on where and how tech boundaries need to be set and kept
✅ Understanding how to manage, filter and protect devices
✅ Getting some much-needed peace of mind.
✅ Keeping their kids safer and saner online!

People are talking
My child's school had Be In Touch come in and talk to the students (including doing polls and surveys), and then followed that with a session for parents in which they shared some of the data, experiences, and conversations that came up. It made for a really relevant and focused session for the parents, with practical tips and solutions to assist them with keeping kids safe online. I also enjoyed the way they highlighted the partnership between schools, staff and parents, and prioritised children's safety and security over popularity and privacy. As a teacher and parent, I highly recommend Josh and Kate, and their sessions.

Josh was amazing with our children, talking about tricky issues with poise. His warm personality let children have an immediate repore with him. This helped us get realistic results for the survey - a must for all schools who care about the digital wellbeing of their children. We are looking forward to further partnering with Be in Touch to help us guide our parents whom we hope will in turn help provide a safer online environment for their children.

Be in Touch is an absolute invaluable initiative and resource for parents and their children, and even for grandparents like myself, as we navigate this ever growing digital landscape. The digital connected world has such incredible value, but also many challenges, as not only we are being exposed to very powerful negative agendas over the web, but also the danger of devices being the new addiction. Josh and team, thanks so much for coming form a deep values-based motivation to support us in this way.
