In today's day and age, it's all about apps. You rarely see an adult, teen or kid without a phone or tablet in their hand. As a parent, I was constantly concerned about content my kids were viewing, how much time they were spending starring at the screens or their safety when they are away from home. Parenting is a full time rewarding yet stressful job that does not come with a manual. If you can get help along the way...take it! Below are a list of apps that may be useful for your family. I sure have!
Screen Time is a parental control app that helps parents manage and control the amount of time their kids spend on smartphones and tablets.
From your own phone, you can limit your kids’ daily use, block specific apps, approve new apps, block certain times of day (e.g. bedtime) and reward extra time for good behavior!
Screen Time helps kids understand a healthy limit… and reduces those all too familiar device related arguments!
This is the Android parental control app. From it you can both monitor and control screen time on Android devices, Apple iOS devices and Amazon Kindle Fire devices.
If you are a parent, you probably have a massive pile of your kids art work.
From early crayon scribbles and reams of sticker-covered computer paper, to colourful splats of paint and remarkably strong renditions of dogs… kids make art. Lots and lots of art.
The question is, what to do with all the creative output?
One answer involves using state-of-the-art technology to archive all the fabulous handiworks your children make at home, at school and at camp. The Keepy app will organize, store, share and more!
