Great decision! You’ve downloaded one of the most helpful new apps available for parents. We want to affirm your choice because, as all of us parents know, sometimes you just need a pat on the back or a little validation that you’re doing something right. Well, HelloJoey is something right. Here are our tips on getting the most value from the HelloJoey parenting app.
We’re going to help you tackle some of childhood’s toughest questions like:
Will too much screen-time really rot my kid’s brain?
Why does my kid only want to eat cheese and tots?
How do I handle my child’s meltdowns without losing it myself?
Is discipline a dirty word in today’s world?
Raising kids is no easy feat. Families are busier than ever, media is accessible 24/7, technology is constantly changing (which can be both exciting and challenging), societal pressures can get overwhelming, the pace of life just seems to get faster as our kids get older . . . whew! Parenting is not for the faint of heart.
That’s why we created HelloJoey. We want to help you build a rock-solid parenting foundation based on trusted research and expert insights, so when life throws you a curve ball or two, you can manage any parenting challenge with confidence, empathy, and a healthy dose of sanity.
As you dive into the app, you’ll see that it’s intuitive and easy to use, and you’ll be able to navigate around no problem. For now, here’s a snapshot of what you can expect from HelloJoey:
Just 10 minutes a day. That’s what we recommend you spend using the app, whether it’s listening (or even re-listening) to an episode, trying one of our fun activities with your kid, or checking out a recommended book. Every day there’s something to explore: a new audio, a new video, a new definition, or a new graphic. There are hundreds of ways to learn and grow.
Helpful insights into your child’s brain and development. If you’re like most parents, you’ve wondered a million times why your kid behaves in certain ways or what the heck is going on inside their head. In fact, let’s be honest: How often have we all mumbled (or even yelled, sometimes at the top of our lungs), “What were you thinking?!” Well, we asked the same questions to our team of child development experts, neuroscientists and researchers—and then we translated the science into language we can all understand.
A guilt-free, no-judgment zone. We’re not here to tell you how to parent or add more stress to an already tough job. Many of us at HelloJoey are parents, too; we’re all just trying to do the best we can. Our app is designed to help you figure out what works best, on your terms, and offer resources, support, and insights to help you along the way.
They say it takes a village to raise a child. We’d love to be a part of yours and would be honored to take this journey with you, encouraging you along the way.
We believe that you’ll create the strongest parenting foundation by not just listening to our episodes and reading the supporting articles, but also by trying the specific activities; digesting the “gems,” or important insights; and viewing the relevant videos. You set the pace. Listen to a whole kit at once, or try an episode a day. It's up to you. No matter what you choose, we fully believe that real change happens when you apply what you've learned, which is what our activities are carefully and expertly designed to help you do. Plus, they're fun—and will give you opportunities to connect with your child. Also, feel free to listen and listen again to each episode. In fact, we recommend it: You’ll retain more each time.
Ready to go, parents? Let’s go check out the app! Your journey toward more insightful parenting is just a hop, skip, and a jump away.
