Fellow Parent,

Summer’s here and you know what that means? You get to be the screen police, patrolling the mean streets of your kids’ screen usage! 

Truth is, while you instinctively know their screen usage isn’t healthy, they may actually be neurologically dependent on highly addictive video games, social media, and, even, pornography. Worse still, summertime only deepens the dependency for most kids and teens.

“The consistency of these brain findings involving young children and those involving teens suggests that there may be a cumulative impact of digital media use, which tends to increase with age. Thus, limiting screen time and encouraging healthy alternatives as early as possible make up a sound strategy to help children grow up healthy, well-adjusted, and successful in school and life."

If you’re like most parents, you’re not looking forward to the drama to come, including constant begging, pleading, crying, door slamming, fits of rage, heated arguments, and sibling scuffles over video games. 

And then there’s YOUR endless groveling about doing it because you love them…you just want the best for them…you know the drill.

The bad news is that’s what your summer could look like.

The GOOD NEWS is that this summer can be the best summer ever for you and your kids and/or teens! 

If you want to help your kids: 

  • Break free from the highly addictive virtual world of screens that ruin lives
  • Get back to enjoying healthy and fun activities that enhance their well-being
  • Develop real life skills and strengths that bring confidence and success
  • Build vital family relationships and loving memories that help them thrive

What you can expect from each powerful lesson.

“Kids’ Brains and Screens is an extraordinary book. It covers so many aspects of digital life, it covers the science for each area, and it makes it all interesting, accessible, and useful to young people. The book is ideal for any school that has a digital media course, for any parent who wants to talk with their adolescent about why they have the family policies they do, and for any young person who can see that digital childhood is damaging some of their friends. The book shows ways out of the trap, ways to regain a human childhood that is full of real world fun.

Jonathan Haidt, PhD., Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership, New York University (Stern School of Business), author of The Righteous Mind, coauthor of The Coddling of the American Mind

Tuition

Smart phones, pads, watches, and other devices, which are sources of the problem, cost $300 on the very low-end up to $1,600+. A PS5 video game console runs around $450 – before games and add-ons, which cost parents hundreds more. 

But any parent will tell you that the true cost of a screen dependent kid is high. Many kids and teens who overuse screens are under-performers in school, require prescription anxiety meds, suffer from mental illness, neglect their family and responsibilities for more screen time, and cause a host of other problems. And when you consider youth who have dropped out of high-school, flunked out of college, or teen suicide linked to bullying and depression from social media, the cost to parents and the children they love is incalculable.

The gold-standard, physician-endorsed solution could easily cost $10,000+, like the programs for troubled teens. But you won’t pay that amount. It could cost $5,000. Caring parents would easily invest $1,000 to see their kids thrive. But you won’t pay any of the above for this life-changing program. Right now, you can help transform your kids/teens lives and get the full KBS Digital Course for the low-investment of just $197!

BUT WAIT...

Melanie’s personal experience with teen screen addiction, combined with her extensive background in public education on this issue, provides her with a unique perspective and a strong commitment to helping others. With a nursing degree from Emory University, she uses her medical background to develop educational materials for parents and children, helping families prevent and reverse screen dependencies.

Melanie reached out to me while I was writing The Anxious Generation, and she was so knowledgeable—not just about the neurobiology, but about the family dynamics playing out all across America—that I sent her the manuscript and asked for her comments. She offered me excellent feedback, which I incorporated. She also sent me the book that she was writing––Kids’ Brains and Screens—a comprehensive student curriculum that does something extraordinary: it explains the relevant biology and psychology in ways that tweens and teens can understand. Melanie’s firsthand experience with the negative impacts of phone-based adolescence drives her advocacy; she sets a high standard and urges parents to delay giving a smartphone until after high school.

"I’ve known and admired Melanie Hempe for over a decade as she built what is now a treasure trove of information, tools, and techniques for kids, parents, educators, and clinicians to help families navigate technology.

"ScreenStrong is an invaluable resource and guide for families trying to navigate their way through our current screen-focused environment. The Kids' Brains & Screens Course delivers the scientific evidence of brain development and the effects screen usage has on the developing brain. In a culture where smartphones, video games and social media have become the accepted norm, ScreenStrong allows for another path and supports parents who wish to avoid the harmful effects of these technologies. As a pediatrician, it has become clear that depression and anxiety are epidemic in our teen population and there is evidence linking depression with increased screen use. As our children and teens become increasingly at risk of being exploited by and addicted to technology, ScreenStrong reminds parents that they are not alone in having very legitimate concerns about the ubiquitous use of screens in our children's lives."

"I have known Melanie Hempe and Screen Strong since the beginning of her organization. She was initially the canary in the coal mine, bringing attention to the power and effects of social media, video games and screens on the minds of our children. I recommend highly and without reservation every course she presents. ScreenStrong gives tremendous understanding with scientific explanations, as well as practical meaningful solutions on how to help your children reclaim the part of their minds that the digital world has consumed."

“I love reading and often find myself thinking, “I don’t have enough time for it.” However, this showed me that I can make time for it by using my phone and computer less.

ABOUT FOUNDER & SPEAKER

Melanie Hempe

I help parents prevent screen addiction, rescue their kids, and enjoy family life again.

After her oldest son, Adam, dropped out of college due to his video game addiction, Melanie Hempe, BSN, put her nursing degree from Emory University to good use and founded ScreenStrong. It’s her mission to create educational programs for kids and parents so no one will experience the pain of screen addiction. Her ability to simplify medical science and provide practical solutions for families has allowed her to share her passion and bold screen solutions nationally. ScreenStrong has won the hearts of many families who are preventing and reversing childhood screen conflicts and addiction and are thrilled to experience a newfound freedom in their lives.

Melanie hosts the popular weekly ScreenStrong Families Podcast and has been featured in Psychology Today, Thrive-Global, The Wall Street Journal, A&E Network, CBS, CNN, NPR, Screened Out (the movie), and various news and television outlets. Her ScreenStrong Kids’ Brains and Screens Courses are available for parents and students. Her three books include: “Will Your Gamer Survive College?” “Can Your Teen Survive—and Thrive—Without a Smartphone?” and “The ScreenStrong Solution: How to free your child from addictive screen habits.

Melanie lives in North Carolina with her husband, Chris, and four children and is happy to report that Adam has finished college. They are also delighted to trade wasted hours spent on screens for reading good books, spending time with friends in their home, and sharing plenty of family fun. It’s never too late to win back your kids, and ScreenStrong is here to help you do that!
