Let me ask you a question. Do you know how many hours your child or teenager spends on their smartphone? Do you know what apps they are using? If you don’t know the answer to either of these questions, you should.
On an average week, a child spends around 50 hours a week outside of school using technology and staring at screens. Did you read that — 50 hours. When I saw that statistic, I was blown away. However, when I think about my own daughter’s use, I can see how that adds up.
Let me tell you how you can hold your child accountable with their social media use. Let me introduce you to OurPact.
OurPact is an easy to use app for your Iphone that was created to help us as parents hold our kids and teens accountable with their social media use. It teaches them to be responsible with their time through the use of technology.
This is such a great invention. And did I mention that is is FREE?
Now, you may be thinking that you do not like to police your child on social media, but every child — whether they be a teen or a child, needs accountability just like us adults do. The cool thing about OurPact is that it is not a police tool, but rather a family guidance tool.
What Can OurPact Do?
OurPact gives you the power to —
- Schedule internet and app usage according to your child’s schedule. For me, I can see this as being an awesome thing because I have THE hardest time keeping my daughter off of her phone while she is doing her math work during our homeschool hours. She is constantly snap chatting or texting her boyfriend and best friend about their band.
- Set the number of hours your child can use the Internet and apps: If your child seems to spend countless hours on their phone or tablet, simply set the time that he or she can be on and they will only be allowed to use their apps and Internet during that time period.
- Block Internet and apps with just a touch: Are there certain apps you don’t want your child on? Simply block those with a touch and your child or teen will not be able to access them.
OurPact is easy to use, easy to set up and great for parents or families who are concerned with their children’s over use of technology. Whether you are introducing a device to your child for the first time, or simply have a teenager who spends too much time on social media, OurPact is the perfect parental control solution for your iOS family.
