About Kristen Daukas

Welcome to the Online Home for Kristen Daukas & “Just Kristen”!

I am a 15-year veteran blogger who writes about entertainment, technology, social media, parenting teens and tweens, little life hacks that get me thru the day, as well as other odds and ends… Like divorce and dating in your 40’s and 50’s. I’ve worked with dozens of companies across the country as an influencer and have been an ambassador with Netflix for more than 4 years.What are your kids hiding behind the secret vault apps on their smartphones?
In 2011, I started the site  Ten to Twenty Parenting
which is a community site and information resource for parents of teens and tweens and the unique parenting challenges they’re facing.
As the mother of 3 teenaged daughters who belong to what I dub the “digital generation”, I am often approached by parents, other adults, and the media who are concerned about the use of apps, sites, and devices that their kids are using. What began as a Parenting Boot Camp more than 5 years ago (as a way to give parents a ‘crash course’ on all the new things they were facing when it came to parenting their tweens and teens) has grown into a full servicing of ways to help parents and adults.
In 2016 I launched Social Savvy Workshops to teach parents and other adults the technology and social sites their kids and teens are using through coaching sessions offered in small groups, parenting workshops, a website dedicated to the parents of teens and tweens, and an online webinar series that teaches parents and adults everything they need to know about what their kids are doing online.
The Social Parent Social is like a Tupperware party for technology where I go into the homes of parents and school assemblies to give them ALL the dirty secrets of the apps their kids are using! I’ve jokingly referred to myself as “every teen and tweens worst nightmare” because of the inside scoop that I give parents and adults.

“We worked with Kristen on a blogger review campaign. We were working with a client within a pretty unique category and whose product was only sold online. The product addressed specific skin conditions and the price point was much higher than comparable products, but it offered innovative technology their competitors would not have.  We knew this was going to be a product sold by ‘word-of-mouth’ online and we reached out to Kristen to help us identify and recruit relevant bloggers with a great social media presence.

Kristen found a very qualified pool of bloggers who were affected either themselves or someone in the home with this condition. She vetted them and provided complete contact information in under a week, which was excellent turnaround time.  She found us exactly who we were looking for and saved us several hours of online searching.

Our blogger review program was a great success and we saw an immediate uptick in sales within weeks. The bloggers posted thoughtful, candid reviews and had a broad influence of reach across all social media platforms. We would definitely work with Kristen again on a campaign!”

Thank you so much for your wit and wisdom. I having one of those days with my 18 year old son (who is still on my paycheck until he picks up a diploma in June) and said nearly everything you said in the “7 Simple Rules for Living in Our House,” but with a few chosen “terms” tossed in for effect. My dear friend was my sounding board and sent me your link last night. I laughed (and almost cried) because the post was like a reassuring cup of tea. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am now a follower and believer.

    Angela – I am so glad that I could bring you some laughter in this quite often daunting task of raising teens. We’re all struggling and we all need as much help as we can get. Glad you stopped to share and I hope to see you around again!!!

So happy to have discovered this site along with Ten to Twenty! I wanted to thank you for the warm Tweet welcome, but until I figure out how to do that on Twitter appropriately, I wanted to do it here immediately. So glad our paths crossed in Cyber Space. Got lots of exploring to do here now!
