If you’re like us, then you’re doing whatever you can to get your kids outside and enjoy the amazing weather before online school starts and the cold weather hits. Turns out, technology can be a great way to make that happen, which we know might seem a little counterintuitive but, we’re dealing with digital natives, after all.

So, on this episode of Out-Tech Your Kids, we’re sharing 5 creative ways to use tech to get your kids to enjoy the great outdoors. You can listen right now (it’s only 15 minutes!), and then be sure you’ve subscribed to our podcast on Apple podcasts, so you never miss an episode.

About our amazing sponsor

Sofia Family Digital Activity Manager can revolutionize how parents can monitor, track and limit screen time for the whole family | Sponsor

The launch of Out-Tech Your Kids is graciously brought to you by Sofia Family, the first dedicated digital activity time manager built to work across all your devices, both on and offline, created by a dad of four who was sick of fighting with his kids about screen time.

It’s totally kid-proof, which means, no circumventing this! We like that the folks at Sofia Family know this is not a substitute for good parenting. Just another tool to help you raise independent kids who can make good choices on their own…with a little help until they get there.

Their crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo is launching shortly, so sign up to be one of the first to get your hands on their new device, complete with some great early bird discounts.
