Let’s Be Honest

If your kids are awake, they’re probably on a smartphone,
in front of a smart TV, downloading apps, or posting to social networks.
And most likely you have no idea what they’re doing.

The Goal

The idea started with a group of dads who felt like their 9-year-olds knew more about tech than they did. They were right. That's how iparent.tv was born, and with your help it's where things turned a corner forever for all parents. Once launched, we will have hundreds of videos and reviews that are current, cutting-edge, and trending, keeping our subscribers ahead of the tech curve.

iParent.tv will be a site for parents to access all the videos, reviews, how-tos, and live chat support. It will be the largest site on the net helping parents understand tech, what's safe, what’s not, and what's age-appropriate.
We are currently building out the site for a late July launch. No more learning about SnapChat from your 12-year-old! You'll learn it at iparent.tv instead. Our team of tech experts will release weekly updates and videos to keep parents like you up to date on tech trends. We have you covered!
We need your help!
