Making Peace with Screens and Gaming
How to live in harmony with children and technology.
Do you have a child that uses technology on a regular basis? Are you worried about how long your child is gaming every day, or watching YouTube, but you don’t want to be in a policing role all the time? ……..then this course is for you.
Here’s why making peace with screens and gaming is important.
Many peaceful parents get caught up in conflict over screen time and gaming. They end up worried, yelling and nagging, even though they don’t want to be like that. The struggle with technology use exhausts everyone and dampens the the joy in family life.
Our fears about the effects of screen time can begin to control our words and actions. Imposing and policing rules and limits can bring us into daily conflict with our child and generate a lot of painful feelings. This course will help to calm your anxieties and bring more peace and kindness into your home.
Calm your fears and build connection and confidence.
This course will help you:
- Feel reassured that your child is OK and that you can find solutions to problems together.
- Ask questions of an experienced “gamer mum” who has been through all the same anxieties and challenges.
- Learn why parent-imposed limits and rules can do more harm than good.
- Trust your inner wisdom and follow a path that suits your child and your family.
- Learn how to question your thinking and dissolve your problems.
Here’s what people have said about my recent courses.
“I really enjoyed listening to Freya’s course. I love the way she was able to change her mindset about screens. She gave me some tools I could use to conquer my fears, which seem really helpful in my process of learning to let go and embrace living life with my family and building a good relationship with my children. She is very inspiring.” Lorene
“It helped with my confidence to follow our own path with home education and to spend more time observing and to participate more with my son’s interests such as gaming and how to record learning outcomes this way.” Sonya
“It’s given me a lot of confidence to stray from the curriculum when the need arises. It’s certainly helped me relax a little bit and go with the flow. In just the few weeks I’ve been doing this course I’ve noticed a little more child-directed learning and am nurturing that as we go along. It’s very exciting, almost like learning to walk again but differently.” Fiona

How many homeschoolers HAVEN’T been asked “But what about socialisation?” by extended family, friends or random strangers? Zero. Exactly none. We’ve ALL been grilled on this topic. Which makes some of us a bit jumpy and defensive. Hence the repetition of this question: “Will my children get enough socialisation if we home educate?” I’ve been…
How speaking from the heart changed my life. Some of the things my parents said to me were toxic. I felt their effects many years later. I vowed that I would never speak that way to my own children, but the words leaked out anyway. When my sons were young I found myself saying things…
