Hi, I'm Galit. (*My name is pronounced guh-leet + means little waves, like in the ocean.) I give you the tools you need to let your kids benefit from the amazing things the online world has to offer them and create a popsicle dripping, chapter book reading in one sitting, leaf crunching childhood that they deserve. Welcome, I'm so glad you're here.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU?
HOW ONE BLOGGER WENT FROM BEING FAT SHAMED TO STARTING AN INTERNATIONAL ONLINE KINDNESS MOVEMENT FOR KIDS
"Kids today" are attached to their phones, dependent on their screens, and have lost the ability to be creative and play.
You've heard that before, right?
Well, it's a lie.
My kids and students prove it every single day with the movies they produce, direct, and create. The research they seamlessly and efficiently do. And the crazy-amount of coding, artwork, fun, and connection they create via devices daily.
Not only that? But they do this while seamlessly moving between the online world and the "real one."
What if there was a proven formula you could follow to teach your kids to be balanced, safe, wise, and kind online?
Weave between online and off line activities? Easily.
Be transparent about what they're doing online? Of course.
See the internet as a tool for good (not just as entertainment for mind numbing)? Every single day.
Contrary to what you might think, there are simple hacks for reaching these goals.
Repeatable and easy-to-implement formulas. They aren't complicated, but they are hard to find.
My name is Galit Breen and I am the founder of These Little Waves LLC.
At These Little Waves I research what our kids are doing online and what they need to know to use the online world in a better way. Then I test teaching strategies and turn the most effective strategies into detailed, step-by-step, simple instructions for you.
Step 1: I research and test everything.
Step 2: You get the best hacks.
For example ...
After I gave my TEDx Talk (below), I found a new hack for starting an awkward conversation with kids (cyber bullying, fat shaming, purposeful kindness) AND getting kids to connect to the information and open up, be transparent, and discuss it. It has worked every single time I have used it.
The best part? It takes less than 15-minutes to implement.
The hack isn't hard. It's not complicated. But if you don't constantly research and test new things, you'll miss out on hacks like this that can easily teach your kids what they need to know AND keep you connected to your kids via technology, not despite it.
That's why I'm here.
I do that hard work for you.
I regularly email out new teaching + connecting hacks.
To get those hacks, just enter your email address below and I'll send them to you for free along with the 15-minute hack I talked about above.
I'll also toss in 3 of my all-time best hacks:
- The App Ask Hack: How to handle it when your kids ask for new apps like a total boss
- The Organization Printables: The 5 routines your family needs to have in place so that your kids can be organized at school and your family can stay connected in this busy, modern world of ours
