This Challenge Supports Healthy Families

Fighting Screen Addiction

Too much time on smartphones, social media, and games can change a child’s brain, just like how drug addiction does. It leads to more aggressiveness, tantrums and lack of attention so family and school environments begin to suffer the side effects.
 
That isn’t even the scariest news.
 
Studies have confirmed delayed speech and development in children under 4 and a whole bunch of mental health issues coming from screen overuse.
 
Big tech companies make their apps so addictive that kids find it hard to stop using them. They begin to find everything else boring compared to the bright and fast-moving shows that deliver dopamine in repetitive easy-to-consume bursts. Kids never had a chance.
 
Your child might be showing signs of overuse. Things like having trouble focusing, being restless, not caring about things, being aggressive, gaining too much weight, or not being good at talking to others.
 
They might even get really upset or anxious if you take away their device or limit their screen time.
 
Your interest in regaining control over the situation is correct. Children need more alternatives and skills for healthy screen habits and parents need help in guiding that process. That’s where this challenge can help.

and lose the guilt about how addicted your child is right now.

This isn’t about radically changing your family dynamics or implementing rigid, unrealistic rules.

It’s about using CREATE’s Screen Challenge framework to help guide your child into becoming a responsible user of technology without frustration, confusion, or damage to your relationship.

The 22-Day Screen Reduction Challenge provides clear, incremental steps tailored for busy parents who care about raising healthy, balanced kids in the digital age.

 

 

Transformational Challenges:

Becoming a Better Parent in Just 5 Minutes a Day

CREATE provides parenting education to over 1 Million of families by making them simple to understand and engaging to work with. This challenge is another example of our work. It sources the most effective habit building strategies and puts it into bite size emails parents read in less than 5 minutes a day. Then use our bonus printable activity or worksheet to bring the lesson to life in your life.

 

Daily 5 minute lessons might sound strange, since we’re used to learning from long informative books, detailed lectures, and webinars. But life is extra busy right now and the added stress that kids add to the day make these longer formats hard to follow through on. That’s why CREATE developed Transformation Challenges that guide parents through creating a behavioral change with their child in incremental steps.

 

Instead of a big book or online course you have to separate time to complete, we organized a strategy that is based off of short, practical steps that you learn in daily emails. Each email takes just 3-5 minutes to read and a few more to do.

 

These Challenges focus on:

Being Efficient: Delivered daily emails so you can read quickly and act on fast.

Promoting Follow Through: Each email has a specific, doable action for that day that works towards your reduction goal.

Building Long Term Parenting Skills: Every day your parenting skills will improve, making these habits a natural part of your family life.

Keeping You on Track: Put the stress of remembering on us! Our regular reminders keep you focused and on track.

Learning About Yourself: Some emails help you reflect and grow as a parent.

 

The email guidance lets you choose when to read the lessons. Whether it’s at lunch, waiting for dry cleaning, or in the grocery store line, our educational emails can be read anytime, anywhere.

If you follow the tips we give over the next 18 days, you’ll start to see a change in your child’s behavior and their responsibility with smart devices. They’ll improve at taking breaks from them and using them more safely.
