Summer time was magical as a kid. It was the one time of the year, you could play outside with your friends until the sun went down. Some of my best childhood memories happened on those hot summer days exploring the neighborhood with nothing but my bike and a good friend by my side. Those are the kinds of memories that every kid should have a chance to experience. Unfortunately if your kids are like mine, they want to spend as much time as they can behind a screen playing video games, chatting with friends or watching YouTube videos. Sure these things are fine, in moderation, but they should never replace those experiences that can only happen outside. This summer I have been determined more than ever to find out how to limit screen time with my kids.
How To Limit Screen Time
Earlier this year we attempted to limit screen time, and it didn’t work out as well as I hoped. I thought that simply telling my kids no electronics would be enough but honestly it’s wasn’t. I needed some help. And that’s when I came across OurPact. OurPact 2.0 is a free Parental Control that allows parents to block or limit screen time. This parental control app gives parents the ability to block Internet access and Apps with just one touch or through daily time schedules. You determine when and how much access your child can have on the internet. The great thing about this app is you are in control of the screen time.
With OurPact there is no more arguing or your kids pleading for just 5 more minutes. This was one of the biggest battles with my kids. When it came time to shut down the iPad, they would plead with me just a few more minutes because there was also “the next level” to make it too. OurPact makes it easy because it shuts it down without me having to say a thing. When you set the time OurPact makes sure that apps disappear and the internet cannot be accessed until you say so. With the release of OurPact 2.0 you can access this parental control on any device. Whether it’s Desktop, Android, or iOS. All of these now how have access to the OurPact platform.
