Kids spend too much time with tech these days.
… Truth be told? So do parents.
Even though technology is great for helping us stay in touch when we can’t be together, I can’t help but feel that it also is great at pushing us farther apart when we actually are.
How many times have you found yourself ‘quickly checking’ Facebook or Pinterest, only to emerge with fuzzy eyes 45 minutes later?
… Or asked your kids to put their devices away to come to dinner, and received a grunt or argument in response?
Devices can wedge between us, throw us off balance. Fortunately, finding balance isn’t just possible, it’s easy as can be. The secret? An awesome parental control app, called OurPact.
Here’s how it works:
- Android Devices (eg. HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy Tablet), or
- iOS Devices (eg. iPad Mini, iPod Touch, iPhone 6)
Pairing is simple, all you need to do is navigate to pair.ourpact.com in your child’s device after creating an account, then follow the prompts.
Once your child’s device is managed, parents have the ability to (drumroll, please!)…
Remotely manage children’s access to internet and apps.
This game-changing ability can happen through two options:
Automated Schedules: You set up (in the parent app) schedules for periods of time you don’t want your child to have access to Internet and apps, and during those times, access will be limited automatically. This feature is great for:
- School Hours
- Weekly Tutor Sessions
- Sunday Unplugged Family Time
At a Touch Blocking/Granting: At any time, and from anywhere (literally, anywhere – you can be on the other side of the world, or at the grocery store down the street!), you can select a period of time you want to block access to internet and apps on your child’s device. This is great for:
- Quick car rides (conversation > headphones)
- Family Dinners
- Homework Time
- Encouraging Chores to be Done!
The app is a total life-changer, and is essential to ensuring devices don’t get in the way of all things important: family time, school, sleep… You name it!
