Is your family struggling with time spent on screens?

Does your child have meltdowns when asked to put down the device?

Does your teen seem extra moody or have trouble sleeping?

Are you worried that your kid is growing up too fast?

Do you feel frustrated when your kids say “just one more game?"


Parenting kids today is harder than it was 20 years ago. Electronic devices are everywhere–at school, at work, at home.


Hi. I’m Dr. Beverly Pell. I have three children, and I understand firsthand the struggles and challenges of raising kids in a digital era. Now that I have a granddaughter, I can see how much more challenging it is today raising kids surrounded by digital devices at home and at school. In 2020, more kids were watching YouTube than ever before.4

We love spending time with our kids, and we want them to grow up healthy and happy. So how can we protect our time and treasure in a digitally driven world? I surveyed hundreds of families using technology in the home, and I discovered parents were overwhelmed by monitoring and regulating their kids' screen time. This led me to develop the 4 step TAME Your Tech® framework.

Today, when we’re irritable, annoyed, impatient, and overwhelmed, we aren’t the problem–it’s our tech! When it comes to using digital devices we can tame tech so it doesn’t interfere with the family life we dream of having. A tamed object doesn’t surprise you and its behavior is predictable. Taming something means to control it.

We can tame our technology!

The Tame Your Tech® Guide for Parents provides everything you need to start implementing this framework with your family today. If you need additional support, schedule a discovery call to discuss one-on-one or group coaching.
