A new study shows kids spend four to seven minutes a day of unstructured outdoor play. And yet 7 hours or more a day on screens. Research proves kids need outdoor play. With unstructured outdoor play, they are more likely to be inventive, explore, and learn about the world around them. Research proves outdoor play promotes a healthy active lifestyle that prevents obesity. It increases kids’ attention span. Kids who play outside regularly are more curious, self-directed and likely to stay with a task longer. And best yet, their happier! What if you could get your kids outside more? Kids play outside more when screen time is managed, and devices are out of sight.
TechDen helps do just that. It’s an app + a smart charging station that manages screen time that also securely stores and charges devices. With TechDen you set and establish screen time limits. When it’s not a time to use your device it simply goes in The Den, where it’s stored, charging and most importantly: locked and inaccessible.
When devices are in The Den kids don’t even think about wanting to use it. Instead they find themselves spending more time with family, experiencing more face-to-face interactions, outdoor play and physical activity.
TechDen’s unique approach is effective for encouraging positive emotional health and well-being by reducing screen time. Kids play outside when devices inside (The Den)! Additionally, TechDen teaches healthy tech habits by establishing a predictable routine that works with a reward system to reinforce positive behavior. Just like we teach our kids healthy eating habits it’s more important than ever before to teach healthy tech habits too. The app helps hold us to the screen time rules we set as parents. Keeping devices in The Den helps keep devices out of sight and out of mind.
Less screen time. More family time.
