Hey Parents! Welcome back to the No-Problem Parenting Podcast, Where we choose to deal with and overcome behavior problems in our home.
Are your preschoolers and elementary aged children constantly asking for screen time?
Do you wish there was another product or device out there that your kids would be just as or even more excited about than their Ipad or video game?
Well you are in luck! Today I’m speaking with Drew Vernon, Marketing Director at Tonies - an alternative to Alexa for parents looking for audio storytelling without the Big Brother link.
Tonies sells its brightly colored Toniebox Smart Speakers, encouraging listeners ages 3 and older to play imaginatively. To date, the company has sold 1.7 million Tonieboxes.
Drew is much more than just the marketing guy, he is a former child and a dad. His passion for his family and children is the reason why he’s at Tonies.
Drew is going to introduce us to this NEW product that offers an alternative to screen time.
We’ll talk about why removing the screen is critical to our kids creative development process and how we can use the power of storytelling to empower our kids to be creators, authors and performers.
Get ready to deal with and overcome another parenting challenge in todays episode of the show.
