What kind of resources will best help you raise smart digital kids? Answer a few quick questions and Beverly will send personalized resources to get you started.
Parenting kids today is harder than it was 20 years ago. Electronic devices are everywhere-at school, at work, at home.
My granddaughter is the inspiration for Smart Digital Kids. Her generation (Gen Alpha) will be the first to discover the world in virtual and augmented reality.
Join us in raising a generation of smart digital kids who use tech intentionally, responsibility, creatively and in ways that promote purpose and well-being.
I'm Dr. Beverly Pell - a mother, grandmother, retired professor, veteran home educator, researcher, tech-positive teacher, entrepreneur and founder.
I raised my own kids in the Information age and understand firsthand the struggles and challenges that come with raising kids with digital devices.
I surveyed hundreds of parents who use technology in the home, and discovered how overwhelmed they were with monitoring and regulating their kids' screen time.
Explaining to kids why it's best to delay having a smartphone or that it's healthy to limit time playing games is a constant struggle in homes today.
This led me to develop the 4 step TAME Your Tech™ framework.
We can tame our technology!
When it comes to using digital devices we can learn to control tech so it doesn't ruin 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. Tech is controllable!
The Tame Your Tech™ Guide for Parents provides everything you need to start controlling tech with your family as a team.
You can also find support by scheduling a discovery call to discuss one-on-one or group coaching.

When I get a DM like this it totally makes my day! I talk about this stuff so parents will understand why not to take their kid’s phone away, and how to work out the power struggles in different ways. I post Reels on Instagram (begrudgingly) because the algorithm, supposedly, pushes out that form of …
I posted an Instagram Reel a few months ago that both surprised and encouraged me. The Reel was viewed over 1.5 Million times with 44.5K Likes and nearly 1,000 comments. The post was from a parent’s viewpoint: “We gave our son a phone too early? Can I just take it back?” And the answer I …
