In June 2017 I cut my kids’ screen time right back from 2 hours/day to about 2 hours/week. It had crept right up there without me even noticing. At the time I had a 6 month old, 2 year old, and 4 year old. And I cut it right back. At first it was hard, really hard. But it WORKED.
As I reflected on this huge change for our family I realised that there was a process that I’d followed. A process of using a lot of the knowledge and skills that I have as an occupational therapist and applied them to our family life. Skills like environmental analysis, task analysis, family education, grading, and applying the stages of change.
I decided that this information to be shared, so I’ve been making notes and putting together a step by step process for you, my fellow parents.

If you’re constantly tired and maybe feeling a little bit guilty about how much time the kids are spending on screens but are just stuck in a rut and wondering how to change it, then this is for you.
You’ll get to know more of our story, an analysed break down of the steps I took and why, and you’ll know that it’s all backed up by the science of change, play, and child development.
There will be an option to access extra support from me in the form of 1:1 consults, where I can offer help with the following:
- analysing your play space and recommending changes
- discussing your child’s strengths and interests and providing recommendations based on these
- creating goals and plans specifically suited just for your family
- support for YOU on the days it gets hard
As an Occupational Therapist it concerns me that many children are so addicted to screens. As a parent I can completely relate to your problem and I know you don’t need another “expert” to tell you how bad screens are. My aim is to offer a practical, holistic, non-judgemental service that will give you a step-by-step process to break your kids’ screen addictions and get them playing more.
