For most of us, our kids will be engaging in some form of online learning this fall. So, we decided to poll our Out-Tech Your Kids Facebook Group members and get their favorite tech tips to help make the whole process a little easier. We hope they help you as much as they’ve been helping Kristen (and soon-to-be Liz in a few weeks).

You can listen right now – it’s only 17 minutes long! – but make sure you’re a subscriber so you never miss an episode. Plus it helps other listeners find us, which we greatly appreciate.

Tech tips from our listeners that make remote learning a lot easier -- for the kids and for parents!

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.

And yay, they’re giving a system away, along with a 6-month subscription, to one lucky listener! Just head over to their website and sign up for their newsletter. If you’re already on their mailing list, then you’re already entered!
