Mission Statement

iWISE™ exists to promote healthy screen use through education, consultation, counseling and technical assistance to parents, youth, and others utilizing sound research, quality materials, professional experts and common sense.

Screen Health Defined

Human beings now spend more time each day staring at screens then they do sleeping. The effects of this are just beginning to be seen and the forecast for long term harm is alarming. As we become more knowledgeable we will certainly adapt and evolve both the technology itself and the way we utilize it. People across the planet are working to address these issues to protect the health of our society as a whole. But it will take time and there will be obstacles from those who fear losing freedom or profits. In the meantime, there are things we can do on an individual level to help protect the health of ourselves and our loved ones.

Internet Porn

Internet pornography is a multi-billion-dollar industry that thrives off of the innocence and instinct of human beings. With just one click a child can be traumatized emotionally and left with a negative perception of sex, love, relationships, and their body.

Violence and Video Games

An individual diversion that started with silly cartoon animals (think PacMan, Qbert, DonkeyKong) has evolved into a full social immersion where children are rewarded for behaving in explicitly violent ways that would be considered deranged and criminal in the real world (think COD, GTA, Mortal Kombat).

Digital Disorders Addiction

Though professionals debate terminology, the reality is that people’s lives are changing because of our relationships with screens. Chemical bursts in our brains and subsequent feelings of pleasure are causing many to spend more and more time with their electronic devices frequently ignoring negative consequences and the world around them.

Other Concerns

Sitting and staring is changing more than just our minds, our bodies are being affected as well. A whole new system of symptoms and syndromes are being identified and diagnosed with links to screen usage

The “P” Word

-Children are curious about it, unprepared for it, unprotected from it. –Parents are unaware of it, uneducated about it, too busy to deal with it. -Schools are saturated with it, overwhelmed by it, not allowed to talk about it.      Keeping our heads in the sand is leaving our kids […]
