If you find yourself constantly nagging your kids to get off their phones, you’re not alone!

Technology has invaded every nook and corner of our lives. Parents are working from home, children are exposed to screens - and everyone's checking social media a zillion times a day! With so many distractions at our fingertips, raising kids took on a whole new dimension in the 21st century.

But what if we could use technology to make parenting easier and help our families feel less anxious, stressed, and overwhelmed every day?

In this episode, I share 3 tech tools that can help feel calmer and more in control as a parent…and that can even help you stop nagging!
