Now-a-days we manage our lives with the help of the computer and a lot of other devices. This can be an awesome advantage when it comes to sharing our experiences with friends and family who live far away. Of course it also comes with some pretty big dis-advantages when it comes to our children’s habits and how much time they spend on their own devices.
Have you ever had to argue with your child about how much time they have spent on their devices? Have you found them surfing the internet or playing games long into the night or when they should be studying? This is where OurPact comes in.
OurPact allows you to easily manage your children’s activity on their iOS devices. You can link your device with theirs and keep track of all their activity, and schedule when they are able to use their devices. You can make sure that your child’s device isn’t being used during study time, school time, after bedtime, etc. OurPact will give scheduling recommendations based on your child’s age.
With OurPact you can easily, and instantly, change your settings to meet your families needs:
- 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.
- Allow Website and App access, whenever you feel your child “needs more time”.
- Block all apps (eg. Facebook, SnapChat, Intagram, Twitter, etc.), as you see fit.
I remember when we got our first computer. If I was on it too much my mother would take the cord out from the (horrible) dial-up modem. With many of us working from home and needing internet connections that just isn’t a solution anymore. OurPact is an excellent way for parents and children to work together and schedule times when it is appropriate for kids to be on their devices while helping them form healthy habits on their (often addictive) devices.
You can download OurPact in the iTunes store!
