We know – digital devices are a lifesaver during the school holidays. But it’s a good idea to put some restrictions on screen time so that your kids don’t go back to school with four eyes. These are the apps we’re using.
This app is helpful for more than just screen time – it also monitors the apps your kids use to keep them safe online. We love that it helps you create custom daily screen time schedules for your kids’ devices, tailoring the controls to your day-to-day needs.
Apple Screen Time
Did you know that your iPhone has a built-in function for controlling screen time? Screen Time reports on how your device is used, the apps opened and websites visited. It also lets you set limits for your most used apps and see how many times a device was picked up or received a notification.
You could also manage screen time the old fashioned way – that is, physically locking away devices. There are specially designed ‘phone jails’ with timers on them, but haven publisher Keeley thinks she’ll just use an old suitcase to lock the tech up!
