Hi there, fellow parent of teens!


Chances are you’ve got a teen (or pre-teen) in your house…and perhaps there’s a device (or two!) hanging out in their hand too!

You’re either regretting that decision, or you’re dreading the day you must face this duo head-on.

You would like to have a calm conversation with your teen about their need, ahem—want—for a new phone, video game, or the latest social media app. You want this conversation to end without tears or slamming doors.

You miss the “Hey, how was your day?” conversations you used to have. Instead, you find yourself fighting for your teen’s attention over their TikTok feed or Mr. Beast’s latest YouTube video. 

You wish your teen would wake up in the morning excited about learning a new song on the guitar or trying out for the soccer team, instead of immediately grabbing their phone to scroll through Instagram wondering how many likes their last photo got or to post their daily Snap.

On the flipside…

You might be the parent with all the parental controls and boundaries in place, making you “the meanest mom or dad in the world” and you’re wondering how to maintain a healthy relationship with your teen and still hold your ground.

Really, you just wish you could make tech disappear altogether, but you’ve come to terms with the fact that tech is here to stay.

And you’re not giving up. 

As an intentional parent, you’re here because you want what’s best for your teen.

You’re committed to raising a teen with a sense of self stronger than any screen. And yet you find yourself wondering… 

...if it’s possible for your teen to enjoy the benefits of technology without embracing its dark side? 

…can your teen use tech as a tool, without becoming another tech-tethered statistic?

...how can you and your teen make meaningful connections and lasting memories and not turn to a device every second of the day?

Hi! I'm Andrea Davis,

Mom to 5 and a former Secondary Education teacher turned screen-time-navigator for families who are ready to parent from a place of confidence, not fear. Parents who are willing to delay devices AND teach their teens how to have a healthy relationship with technology.

believe we don’t have to battle tech. We have to create boundaries for it and then, empower our teens to use it wisely so when they go out in the world, they’re better prepared, they know what to expect and they are ready to handle the challenges and the consequences.

believe in hope and guilt-free parenting. We already have a lot to deal with. The last thing you need is someone shoving more to-dos on your plate. 

You need a fellow mom who understands it’s okay to not have everything figured out all the time. 

You need a researcher who finds what you absolutely need to know about so you can stop paying attention to the fear-mongering and start putting your energy toward what really matters—your teen!

You need a friend who happens to have a framework she’s tested on her teens.

I’m that friend, that researcher, that mom.

As a mom to 5 kids, ages 8 to (almost!) 18, I’m right there in the trenches with you.

I’m personally invested in figuring this out.

I get to do this FIVE times! #sendchocolate


You’re tired of everyday screen time battles and struggles. Seeing your teen spend hours on YouTube consuming mindlessly instead of creating intentionally makes your heart ache.

You’re exhausted with the micromanaging and the reactive, knee-jerk, yell-at-your-teen “protocol” that kicks in each time you see screens go up.

BUT… you don’t want your tech battles to drive a wedge between your teen and you. 

You need a fresh take, a healthy approach, an effective way to turn down the volume on the tech noise that’s currently drowning out all conversation in your home.

Or you might be the parent who has been holding out!

You’ve limited your teen’s access to tech and you feel paralyzed. You’ve read the studies and the headlines, and you know the dangers that are lurking on the other side of the screen. 

You’ve held your ground—always saying no to every tech request, but you’re feeling that pit in your stomach and voice in your head, telling you that you need to do more—prepare your teen more.

But, you’re not feeling ready to give your teen more access. 

You’re not sure how to move forward or what to do next.

You want someone to show you how to take a slow-tech approach to technology and mentor your teen along the way so your teen can learn to use tech wisely without it taking over their life.

As a parent of three teenagers myself, I can tell you this…

Our teens need us.


The stats are startling…and the stories?
The stories are heartbreaking.

Parents often share the disconnect and struggles with me...

“My son spends so much time in his room on his phone or playing Xbox with his friends.”

“My daughter is always on Discord because she says it’s the best way to talk to her friends. Sadly I learned she’s been talking to strangers, too.”

“My son spends most of his ‘homework time’ sneaking in YouTube videos on his school provided Chromebook.”

“My son has lost all interest in his old hobbies. All he wants to do is watch YouTube or play Minecraft and none of his friends seem to have any limits so this drives a wedge in our relationship.”

“My daughter is always begging for the latest social media app and I know it would be a bad idea to allow it. Every time we have this conversation it ends in tears.”

“I wish my teens would realize that playing video games is not life.”

“My teen has poor boundaries with his phone and video games. He isn’t focused during school work and relies on his device any time he is bored or wants to check out.”


In order to combat all of this, parents try:
  • Adding more parental controls and limits
  • Tearing devices out of a teen’s hands and unplugging all the tech
  • Printing out a cell phone contract and requesting their teen sign it

In the end, parents feel defeated because nothing worked—but now they are EVEN MORE disconnected from their teen.
It feels like a losing battle.

You Are Your Teen’s Best Mentor


You do not have to “give up” or “give in” to handing over all the devices and apps because this is just “how teens are these days.”

You can take a slow-tech approach and tailor the tech to your teen. After all, you know your teen better than anyone else!

You can help your teen see the choices they’ll need to make as they decide how they will use technology. They’ll realize they don’t have to download every new app that comes along.

There is no one-size-fits-all tech solution, but there are best practices that will strengthen your relationship with your teen and help them gain a sense of self stronger than ANY screen.

Tricky Tech with
Spencer Sessions

My friend Spencer Sessions is a father of five, an IT Security Engineer at a University, and in his ‘spare time’ creates leadership curriculum for parents and organizations.


Spencer is smart, humble, and all the things you’d hope your kids would grow up to be—but a gaming obsession earlier on in life could have easily prevented him from creating a life he wanted. He loves sharing his story of how he changed his focus away from gaming and will provide some great insights of how you might help your teens do the same.

Navigating topics like pornography and gaming can be tricky, but it can be much easier with Spencer's easy to implement steps! You can bring your teen to this call.

Teen-to-Teen Night

Bring your teen to this teen-to-teen night where our oldest (almost 18!)) will share what it was like to go back to a brick phone and the training (and restrictions) she's endured as she's gained more access to tech and prepares to leave home. Your teens can bring their questions (or complaints!).


Spoiler alert: it was hard at first, but her college essay revealed she was grateful for all those tech boundaries after all.

Tech Time with Tyler

Tyler has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue and currently works as a software engineer. He knows about workarounds and loopholes. ;)

Invite your spouse or partner (if possible) to join you for this call.


Bring all your tech questions!

All classes will be recorded and saved inside the course so you can listen and watch the replays at any point!

The strategies in this 4-Week course have been helping parents for YEARS in our course Untangling Teens & Tech.

Just what I've been searching for!

“This course has been just what I have been searching for! It is organized in a way that is doable and informative. I can tell my teen actually enjoys the time alone with me. We've had great conversations about important topics, like what do you want your future to look like and then connecting that to her technological use and choices. I will be doing this program with my other kids when they are teens, too. Such a great investment in their future!"

TWO YEARS LATER

"I have been learning from you for years and we are starting Untangling Teens & Tech with our 3 child now!

I love what you have created and it has been a huge help in our home!"

- Brittany Turley

"I never knew how much to restrict and control and how much to teach."

"I enrolled in your new course Untangling Teens and Tech. I've struggled with my teens and their tech. I never knew how much to restrict and control and how much to teach and just let them figure it out. One problem I've always run into is not knowing how to help them to own good technology use. I just want you to know that your course far exceeded my expectations. It addressed the whole child and how to help them use technology to soar instead of being fettered by it.

Your course teaches how to help them own good tech habits and to care for the rest of their lives in the process. I've only purchased one other internet courses in my life and I felt like I took a risk buying this one hoping it would be worth that much money. I'm happy to say it was worth that and more! There is no where else in a book or on the internet (that I've found) that addresses this complete of a picture of teens and technology. I've already started with my oldest teen (17) and I know that eventually all of my 6 kids will benefit greatly from what I've learned from this course."

TWO YEARS LATER

“We have six kids, four of them teenagers. :) I can honestly say we do not currently have screen struggles. We are careful and using what I learned from your course, Untangling Teens & Tech, it is more clear to me how to help them develop naturally without screens getting in the way.

Also, for those parents struggling, I must say that we had every screen struggle (except pornography) with my oldest daughter, and she had deep depression and terrible phone use, but....she is now several months into a church mission and joyfully serving. No one would ever know looking at her bright eyes, smile, and industrious attitude, that she ever struggled so much in high school.”

- Ameri Belliston, mom of 6 (4 teens)

Sounds principles + relationship-based techniques

"Andrea’s course hits the perfect balance between sound principles and relationship-based techniques. The course brought to my attention certain practices which I had never thought of—fresh ideas which I could start implementing right away.

Untangling Teens and Tech is a sound and savvy resource for every parent wanting to safely navigate their teen in this crazy world. I will definitely be spreading the word!"

TWO YEARS LATER

"What parent doesn't want to build a solid relationship with their teen while helping them safely navigate tech?! Andrea's course has helped our family promote open communication and collaboration with our teens as we team together to understand the benefits and risks of technology. 

Untangling Teens and Tech has helped me educate and mentor my teens so they can navigate technology using intentional and powerful tools. I STILL recommend Andrea's programs to every parent I talk to!"

- Melanee, mother of four

“Look Around and See Who You Can Help" Guarantee

As a former Secondary Education teacher, a stay-at-home mom, founder of Better Screen Time, and the creator of this course, I take your trust in me very seriously. 

I always tell my kids, “Just look around and see who you can help.” 

This course was born out of that need to help fellow parents navigate the turbulent tech waters with something more than just a technological band-aid. 

Which is why if you, at any time during the first 30 days of enrollment, feel that this course is not helping you to tackle tech, reconnect, or give your teen a sense of self stronger than any screen, email me and I’ll refund your money. 

Helping YOU create a stronger, richer, happier family experience is what I’m ALL about.

You've got options

Plus, you get to save on our special introductory price and get lifetime access!

Over 5 years ago, in the chaos of a cross-country move, we handed over an abandoned smartphone to our 12-year-old.

She is the classic oldest child—super responsible—the kind of kid that cleans her room without being asked. 

The phone seemed like a good idea. She could stay connected with old friends and we could reach each other in a place where we didn’t know anyone.

Months passed...

One day our daughter came home from school and while spooning cereal into her mouth with one hand, she was scrolling with the other hand—and not talking to me. It used to be a "How was your day?" moment, but suddenly the phone was more important than our daily chat. I wondered where my kid went.

A few months later I was leaning over the kitchen counter looking at my own phone when I came across a video of our daughter lip-syncing an inappropriate song she found online. I knew she didn’t really grasp the meaning of the lyrics, but I realized at that moment we had failed her. We had given her too much too soon. 

My husband and I agreed we needed a major tech reset in our home. 

We replaced the smartphone with a brick phone with no internet access (all we had then. There were many tears. As parents, it was one of the most challenging, yet smartest things we've done to safeguard our family from the harms of the online world.

I don’t wish this experience on any other family. And unfortunately, many families have experienced much worse. I don’t say this to scare you, but to help you understand that when you hand a device to a child you are handing them the world.

We can’t completely protect our children from all the harms out there, but we can prepare them (and ourselves!). 

As our children grow and enter adolescence we take on a new role. Instead of being in charge of every moment in our children's lives, we become more of a coach and mentor.

Add tech into the mix, and it becomes a tricky tightrope indeed!

Teens today use technology to connect with their friends and peers (normal part of adolescence!), to learn, create, and be entertained. 

But, we can’t just hand over a device and walk away. There are too many risks. Our teens’ brains are still under construction and well, they’re teens! (Remember those days?

With my background in secondary education, I set out to create a new approach to teens and tech—a team approach, centered on mentoring, not just monitoring our teens

The result was our course Untangling Teens & Tech. I've loved hearing how the principles in that course have changed the tech trajectory for so many teens and parents at a critical point in their lives.

And now I'd like to invite you to join me as we tackle tech and mentor our teens together in just 4 weeks!

LET'S TACKLE TECH, RECONNECT, & GIVE YOUR TEEN A SENSE OF SELF STRONGER THAN ANY SCREEN—TOGETHER!
