Raising kids in today’s highly digitized world is a challenge unique to this parenting generation. It is no longer about just saying “No” to screentime. Today, children use screens for schoolwork, screens to socialize, and screens for entertainment.

That’s why I believe in an approach that focuses on relationships first.

I can’t tell you it will be easy. But I can tell you it works. My family is Tech-Intentional too.

What does it mean to be Tech-Intentional™?

Being Tech-Intentional™ means only using screen-based technology that enhances, nurtures, and supports yourself, your child, or your family in a way that aligns with your values, and resisting, delaying, or limiting screen use that interferes with healthy mental, physical, cognitive, and emotional development.

Why work with Emily?

My mission is to empower parents to better understand and balance family screentime by building a Tech-Intentional™ movement.

Relationships

Before we can change anything else, we have to start with relationships. Relationships before screens, always.

Research

There is a lot of industry-funded "research" about technology. My recommendations are rooted in evidence-based science from independent researchers.

Balance

It’s not practical to ban technology. It is critical to find a sustainable balance that keeps our children safe and reinforces our core values.

Courage

I believe deeply in what I teach. It's why I am not afraid to speak up and fight for what is best for children, not companies.

Become Tech-Intentional

A judgment-free guide for parents who want to better understand and balance family screentime in the digital age.

A judgment-free guide for parents who want to better understand and balance family screentime in the digital age.

Author Emily Cherkin―aka The Screentime Consultant―has written a compelling and necessary book about parenting in the modern digital age. Unlike any previous generation, children’s excessive screen use today at home and at school impacts mental health and family relationships.

With humor, empathy, and experience, Emily invites parents to:

  • become tech-intentional, without feeling judged, shamed, or blamed;

  • implement her research-supported, developmentally appropriate tools to find screentime balance; and

  • build a movement around tech-intentionality (this is good for everyone―children and adults alike).

The Screentime Solution will remain useful even as technology changes because being tech-intentional is an approach that can―and should―remain a constant.

  • “Working with Emily has been such a joy… With her help, we are doing the real work of building a relationship with our daughter outside of screens and instead founded on our familial values and beliefs that will hopefully guide us through most, if not all, of life’s stumbling blocks.”

    J.M

    Client

  • “I cannot rave enough about the life-changing nature of working with Emily Cherkin, The Screentime Consultant… One-on-one coaching was well worth the investment because we could really customize a way forward that worked for our unique family dynamic.”

    C.C.

    Client

  • “I joined Emily’s training as a helpless parent who had lost hope. Now, I am a lot more confident, armed with all the tools and an awesome support group. I know the challenges will continue, but now I am hopeful that I will be able to cope and I know I am not alone.”

    P.N.

    Parent

  • “I thoroughly enjoyed Emily’s workshop and found it to be tremendously helpful. It’s been easier to stick to limits knowing I’m not the only parent doing it. I am grateful for the work Emily does!”

    Dr. Maggie V., MFT, PhD


  • “Emily is a true expert in her field. I walked away from her presentation with information on how to help balance technology at home and steps to put it into practice. Emily presents with first-hand knowledge, well-researched material, humor, and always without judgment.”
