tapouts Replaces Scrolling for Parenting Tips with Fun Mental Wellbeing Coaching for Kiddos


Trusted by more than 25,000 families, 77% of parents using tapouts reported that their child is less stressed after just 16 weeks of participation.

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- For many parents, social media has become a place of undue stress and information overload when it comes to advice on how to raise their children. In fact, a study conducted at Pepperdine University linked the use of social media parenting groups with higher cortisol levels, a marker of increased stress.

"We need to empower our kids in the digital age: teach them to ride the waves of social media, not drown in them," underscores tapouts co-founder and CEO George Moringer. "Parents often enlist coaches for their kids' sports or new skills, recognizing the value of expert guidance alongside their own support. tapouts serves a similar role in the social-emotional realm, acting as a child's coach, with peers to practice alongside in weekly meetups, easing the stress on parents to handle it all alone."

tapouts is a science-backed program that was developed by educators and scientists to create a fun and safe space that enables children to learn lessons that last a lifetime. tapouts' experienced and caring certified coaches help kids learn to express feelings, improve self-control, build confidence, and make friends around the world on their online platform.

The weekly live virtual group sessions are 30 minutes and filled with games (and prizes!) with an approach combining best practices across interdisciplinary fields such as psychology, neuroscience, and education.
