Keeping My Kids On Task With OurPact
Disclosure- this is a sponsored post brought to you by OurPact, but as always,all thoughts and opinions are my own!
In today’s age it seems like everything we does is done electronically. We pay our bills online, catch up with friends on Social Media, do research for school/work online, and we even get most of our entertainment from electronic devices.
Now, seeing that I get most of my business from people spending time on the net (Thanks for that by the way!) I love this tech savvy age. Having said that I know how important it is to have “unplugged time” which seems to be harder for kids than it is for us adults, right? Ha!
Making sure our kids stay unplugged during times of the day when they should be focusing on other things like schoolwork, after school activities, or perhaps one of the most important things, sleep.
So how do we limit our children’s screen time? With OurPact!
What is OurPact?
OurPact is an easy to use, iOS application that was created to help parents guide the mobile habits of their children, as well as teach responsibility through technology. After conducting hundreds of hours of research with child professionals and then teaming up with parents and industry experts, the OurPact team carefully constructed an essential application that keeps the functionality of family life in mind. OurPact isn’t just a parental control tool, but family guidance like never seen before. This simple app gives parents to power to:
● Schedule Internet and App use according to your child’s daily routine, and among the weekdays or weekend.
● Set the number of hours your children spend on the Internet and within Apps.
● Block Internet and Apps atatouch. ● Allow Website and App access, whenever you feel your child “needs more time”, atatouch.
● Block all apps (eg. Facebook, SnapChat, Instagram, Twitter, etc.), as you see fit.
You can do all this without having to stand over your child’s shoulder to make sure they are doing what they are supposed to be doing when they are supposed to be doing it. And it’s not all about restricting either, you can actually add time for good behavior as well. A new way for kids to earn time, I love it!
OurPact has been great for ensuring my kids aren’t texting during class, Facebooking at Dinner time, and are enjoying their phones and tablet’s during their freetime.
