Our focus is your focus — we want to boost the emotional wellbeing, individual awareness, and social competency of your teenager.
We do this by texting your teen(s) videos, podcasts, surveys, memes, and empowering focused messages multiple times a week.
Through text, we are able to measure, inspire, encourage, and intervene directly with your kids, person-to-person, anonymously, and conveniently.

"Idk 😂 I am the oldest in my family and I am struggling with the idea of leaving for college. I kinda just try to not think about it but then I end up not doing the things that I need to do like apply for scholarships. When I do think about it I cry though😅 I love my family and I don't want to loose what we have but I also want to continue to grow and got to college ya know?"
"I want girls to like me"
"it's all good!! just been thinking ab school & life in general. it's all stressful"
"Sounds good! I really appreciate you talking to me. It means a ton to me and I had a good time. Thank you. Have a good night."
"I’m stressed, I’m taking the ACT in 6 days"
"Yeah, my aunt took a stroke, the doctors didn’t know why and it wasn’t looking very good. She had a severe brain bleed and their hope was that her brain would swell and stop the bleeding. But 12 hours later her brain was still bleeding. She had a 3% chance of pulling through but by 8 last night she was brain dead so they took her off life support and around 4 this morning she passed"
"There's a lot on my to do list and I feel it piling up"
"I get bullied a lot"
"Thank you, I love getting messages that make me stop what I'm doing and think about things that leave me in a more positive attitude than before!"
"I don't really have any hobbies. I just work a lot. I work at a mexican restaurant i've climbed before but i don't do it often. I don’t really have motivation to do anything lately."
"I actually just got my grade up from a C to an A-"
"The bullying has been happening for a few weeks and I honestly don't know why. Me and another girl got a note directed towards me called me a f---ing retard and behind my back this kid called me an ugly a--hole. i try not to let it bother me though it's not super important cos (this sounds weird and far fetched ik) likeeeeeee why would he call me ugly unless he thought i have a higher opinion of myself then that, so he prolly knows i couldn't care less about his words like they hurt but i know he's verbally abused at home and i don't put up with it and he can't handle not having the right reactions from me."
"hey thanks im sorry im just being bullied at school and i told the counselor and he's been helping me but it's only getting worse"

"I just got rejected by a girl 😂"
"Lately I've started liking this guy in my friend group and he's really nice and everyone I know loves him but my best friend and it's been making me feel super guilty because she doesn't like being around him. I'm not really sure what to do about it though because I'm trying really hard to not pressure her and talk about him around her but I still feel like its causing a strain in our friendship"
"idk. i just get sad randomly sometimes like my depression will just come and hit me out of nowhere when i'm feeling fine. and my doctor thought i might be bipolar but the psychologist said i wasn't so yeh. idk i'm just kinda weird lol"
"I feel constantly disappointed about myself because I know I can do better, but I don't seem to be able to."
"That’s good, I’ll try to do that today with my friends."
"How do I deal with very opinionated friends?"
"this kid said he loves me and i don't know how i feel!!! like he's so sweet but i just can't say it. it's hurting my brain"
"I just dont rlly have anyone i can talk or relate to. Idk just feeling lonely and a little overwhelmed."
"i want to stay friends with the girl i just talked to. we work at the same place and she's the only one who's ever been very kind to me. i just feel like my friends are very manipulative of me so i feel like i should just tell them that i'm wanting to take a break and focus on my mental health and happiness"
"Okay, thank you🤎"
"My sister has depression, what can I do to help her?"
"That's a very structured way of looking at it, I think that would be a great start"
