You’ve heard it before: “I just want to watch one more show!” or “I’m not done playing this game!” For many parents, battling with their kids over technology has become a painful norm. But believe it or not, you can teach your daughter how to break free from the stream of constant amusement on her own -- and she can learn to face and embrace life instead of retreating to text messages, shows, and games. That’s what this free video series is all about.
This video is about why technology becomes such a snare for your daughter. The truth is it’s designed to keep her hooked. We’ll talk about what you can do to change this pattern.
This video explains how the unpredictability, surprises, and excitement of screens drive us to continue looking at them -- and what we can do about it.
This video covers one more reason why technology is so powerful -- and how you can utilize healthy goal achievement to bring your girl back to the real world.
You probably know a mom who says things like, “My daughter is constantly on social media,” or “My daughter is so addicted to her phone.” Maybe you’ve said these things yourself. This video series is for you if:
You may be wondering how your daughter’s screen time is affecting her life -- and if there is anything you can do about it. Like most moms tired of “the technology wars,” you’re saying, “There must be a better way.”
I have good news for you: There is.
Let me show you what it looks like.
My name is Arlene Pellicane, and I’m an author, speaker, wife, and mother of three. I’ve written a variety of books to encourage families, including Parents Rising, 31 Days to a Happy Husband and Calm, Cool, and Connected: 5 Digital Habits for a More Balanced Life. I’m also the co-author of Growing Up Social: Raising Relational Kids in a Screen-Driven World alongside Dr. Gary Chapman.
My experience speaking about healthy family dynamics and building positive relationships has given me the privilege of being featured on The Today Show, Fox & Friends, Focus on the Family, and more. I write regularly for Proverbs 31 ministries and host my own podcast, The Happy Home. My husband James and I live in San Diego with our children, Ethan, Noelle, and Lucy.
I’ve had a longstanding passion for empowering families to connect in ways that foster affection, character, maturity, and personal growth. With technology being so integrated into the way we connect in the modern world, we have to confront its disadvantages head-on -- and equip ourselves with frameworks that help us thrive in a distracted world.
That’s why I’m giving away this video series, Screen Time: 3 Reasons Why Your Daughter Can’t Stop, because I want to show you that the technology battles can be won. You don’t need to fear your daughter’s attachment to technology -- you can help her manage it and develop habits that will positively shape the way she interacts with the world (both digital and physical) as she grows.
If you want to learn how to leverage technology to unify your family and bring you closer together instead of keeping you apart, then you're in the right place.
