How will unGlue solve my kids addiction?

Last Updated: May 13, 2018 11:51AM PDT

unGlue provides a unique approach to the screen time challenge: help our kids manage their own time, within our boundaries. The challenge is that devices are part of our kids' lives (we gave them those devices) and on the other hand, those devices and the content they consume, is addictive!

Our goal is to stop the fighting by empowering our kids to take control and responsibility while giving us, the parents, visibility and the ability to set limits. Our goal is to find a balance between what our kids want and the limits we believe they should have.

The core of this new philosophy is based on four principles:
  1. Everything starts with a conversation. Talk with your kids about the amount of time they want to have and reach an agreement.
  2. Limit only addictive content. The Internet is not the problem but social media, watching videos, and games are built to be addictive. This is why Entertainment Time is the solution
  3. Help our kids learn how to manage their own time. 
  4. Lead by example. After all, this is our goal as parents
By limiting only addictive content, putting our children in the driver seat, letting them earn more time, and ultimately, learn how to manage their own time, we have solved our biggest daily challenge.
