Here's the what you'll learn...

 SESSION 1

Get Ready for the Jouney

Foundational Concepts

Tech and video games are a world of their own. Helping our kids navigate this well is a partnership between us and our kids. Here's the foundational concepts needed to be a good collaborator:

What healthy - and unhealthy - tech use looks like

How to talk to your kids about healthy screen use

The importance of respect and curiosity

Why experimentation and flexibility work

SESSION 2

How to be in it with your kid

In session 2, we'll cover

  • What to say and do during your screen time adventure
  • What you can expect from your child in these special moments
  • How to keep the mood light and joyful 
  • Understand the real and valid reasons kids resist ending gameplay

Expect to gain a deeper appreciation of your child as your understanding of what and how they play deepens. It's an empowering ride that will bring you closer. 

SESSION 3 

HOW TO END WELL

Make it home together

All’s well that ends well, right? Ending well is a skill that takes practice to build. Learn how to manage bringing your time together to a close with warmth and cooperation.

  • Strategies for Transitioning Off the screen
  • What to do when there are challenges
  • How to break the rules and find what works

HI, I'M VELMA

AKA Mama Mavel. I'm a proud mom of a gamer.

My son's aptitude for games was polar opposite to my own–and I always  kept tight control of his online time. Until he turned 8, and started begging for Minecraft.

I know how baffling and frustrating it can be managing screen use and video games as kids get older. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that instead of creating conflict games could actually bring us closer. Today gaming brings us both lots of joy and laughter. 

After 5 years, I know what works - and I can't wait to share it with you.

See you inside?

Yes Please! I Need This

HI, I'M SONALI

Sonali is a highly-sensitive mom, with three deeply-feeling and strong-willed kids. It took a whole lot of time to see that just because her kids didn't respond to parenting methods the way experts said they would, and just because her family didn't fit society's ideal of a "perfect family," she wasn't a bad mom and she wasn't raising spoiled, snowflake kids. In fact, now she knows for sure, that they rock!

So she’s your sensitivity, needs and regulation go-to-gal.  And, she also happens to be legally blind and have albinism.  When she finally realized she didn’t need to “fit in” to “belong”, it gave her permission to find her own way.  And now she supports others in doing the same.

Her work is dedicated to sharing with parents how it's possible to have fun with high needs kids and to raise them to be kind and compassionate.  Because she gets it - both from being THAT kid, and from having THOSE kids.

Yes Please! I Need This

WE CREATED THIS CLASS FOR YOU IF YOU FEEL

STUCK, ANXIOUS OR

CONFUSED ABOUT SCREENS

This class is for you if:

  • You didn't grow up around games and don't really see why they are so appealing, but you want to engage with your child around screen time
  • You’re afraid that your kid is using tech or gaming to check out of their life
  • Sometimes it seems like the games are in control
  • You feel guilty for how much time your kid spends on a screen, and you also feel guilty for saying no because you see it's important to them
  • Transitions on and off tech and games are challenging
  • All your kid seems to want to do is talk about tech or games
  • You worry about how much time your child already spends online
  • You want strategies to reduce fighting and arguments around video games and screen use
