"I don't think you understand how vital this information is to people like me—I'm not at all technically inclined (I can work my phone and blog) and I get SO scared with all of this gossip and the alarming things about kids who are (let's face it) so much more tech savvy than I am. I'm so grateful for you!"

Do you remember in "Inside Out" when Joy says, "Riley's 11 now, what could possibly change?" That was me.
Before I was a mom of tweens, I was a happy, confident mom of school-age kids. And then, my daughter came home and asked for an Instagram account and that happy, confident mom went out the window.
I became a Facebook thread sleuther who said no to apps and social media simply because I was afraid and overwhelmed.
I didn’t want to parent out of fear and, deep down, I knew that I was pushing my daughter away, the exact opposite of what I wanted to be doing!
That's why my approach to digital parenting is different: I start with your relationship with your kids and apply my background in education, social media, and as someone who has experienced cyber bullying firsthand to help you create a brighter path to raising kids who use the online world as a fun and safe tool, happily look up from their screens once in awhile, and are kind online, even when you're not monitoring.
I'm Galit Breen and I love helping digital parents Parent Brighter — so you can skip the learning curve and get straight to having a child with balanced digital habits that you both love.
SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
If you need help balancing your kids' screen time habits or guidance on what to look for with your kids' online use and — most importantly — what to do with that information, you're in the right place. Check out my digital parenting resources and let's get started!
"Galit does a lovely job of mapping out everything I often question, as well as in areas I may not have even thought of yet, so that I can confidently make the best decisions for my family regarding Internet safety."
