About our Business
We strongly believe that there is a place for technology as it truly improves peoples lives. At the same time we as parents, need to manage exposure even for ourselves. This is new for all of us and the dangers in the headlines today are not the only things we need to worry about. We're only beginning to understand the long term effects of emerging technologies.
Protett, LLC started with some ideas around data protection and cyber security. In the past few years, we had been spending a great deal of time managing our kids exposure to electronics and at the same time keep them happy. Resources and research is somewhat fragmented, and we found that other parents have similar issues.
The size of the problem did not become clear until 2017. This is a very large problem, its a problem that affects all families, lower income families disproportionately so. As the price of electronics falls, those families will have a harder time managing their children's access.
Today we're starting with research, techniques and experiences and we'll go from there finding a way to monetize what we're building.
As the pace of modern living and technology use becomes more intense for our children, families urgently need help finding the right resources to live in this digital age. Protett is creating programs to help families improve their health and mental wellbeing by offering tools, knowledge and developing repeatable methods to help families balance online and offline activities. We are committed to helping families raise children who thrive with the media they watch, play-on, read, create, learn and spend time on everyday.
