Family Digital Wellbeing

In partnership with Be in Touch, Dial a Nerd has created this page to give you all you need to begin you and your family’s digital wellbeing journey. Be in Touch recommends 3 pillars of digital wellness:

  1. Educate – Family Digital Wellness is a journey of learning from our own experiences and those of others. Good digital habits are a life skill that needs constant practice!
  2. Connect – Children need to be socially connected and tech plays a huge role in their lives. Help them make choices to connect safely and happily!
  3. Protect – Devices open doors to worlds that you don’t necessarily want your children to explore. Make sure that devices are protected to keep your children safe!

What does Be In Touch do?

We get parents and children talking about the device use challenges they have, and how they can improve their daily digital habits. We speak in schools, run online learning experiences, and promote practical products that can help to make sure you and your children are educated, connected and protected when it comes to your digital wellness.

We simplify the complicated world of digital wellness with practical guides, resources, information and products. To ensure we are offering solutions that our parents and children really need, our work is driven by the search enquiries we receive every day.
