Forget Blame, Embrace Habits
Excessive screen time is NOT about being a bad parent or having lazy kids. It’s about having the practical tools & guidance to build positive & consistent habits – for you and your family!
Hi, we’re Cindy and Andy Crossley – Co-founders of Habyts®
With 3 boys, we’ve overcome our fair share of screen time, homework & chore issues!
We used to face daily struggles to get our older boys off Minecraft. Constant nagging had no impact. Growing resentment only increased the emotional distance!
Up against the power of digital distractions, we had homework battles almost every evening – particularly as key exams were on the horizon. Regular chores and other good habits were out the window.
It was frustrating for ALL of us.
As a result, we researched hundreds of parenting tools, techniques and apps for parental control. (And discovered a lot more about ourselves along the way).
But ours is the first generation of parents trying to manage internet technology, ‘screen sucking’, and Digital Natives – and we need a new approach!
So, Habyts® was born.
We work with experts and families around the world to provide flexible tools which help caring parents like you take charge of tech – before tech takes charge of your kids.
We hope Habyts® will help you arrive more quickly on the right approach to suit your family (and avoid some of our mistakes along the way).
But let’s be clear on one thing – while our team may have built Habyts – its real power lies in the smart ways families are using it to build better habits!
