Do you currently manage your kid’s screen time? I know, it’s limiting their screen time is easier said than done. Until recently I found myself setting timers and things to make sure the kids didn’t end up spending too much time online and not enough time outside. However, I do admit when the weather is nice I don’t have a problem keeping them outside, they love it, but it’s been SUPER HOT, so they only go outside early in the morning and once it starts to cool off in the evening. Which means dear old mom has to find a way to manage kids screen time effectively. The struggle is real, but hopefully, these tips to help you manage kids screen time and the Circle with Disney device will help you as much as they have me.
Here are a few great tips to help you manage your kid’s screen time and one great device to help you manage every device in your home.
- Filter Your Children’s Content – There are great devices like the Circle with Disney device that allow you to filter your children’s online experience. The beautiful thing about the Circle with Disney device is that you can wirelessly filter content on all the devices in your home with individual filter settings. If you are like me, you have more than one child which means individual filter levels for each family member that matches their age and interest is a huge plus.
- Limit Screen Time – Limiting screen time is important, especially during the summer months. The last thing we want is our children sitting in front of a device all summer long. Rather than setting a timer to limit screen time take advantage of the Circle with Disney device. It’s Circle’s BedTime feature means you don’t have to ask the kids 582 times to get off their device and go to bed because it will kick them off at your set time. Yes, it makes life so much easier!
- Pause Screen Time – Have you ever just wanted to jump in the middle of your kid and their device and scream – “TIME OUT”! Yea, well it’s never that easy, is it? Most of the time I am lucky if my kids even hear me, lol. I think they do, but they pretend they don’t hear me anyway. Well, what if the internet actually had a “PAUSE” button. Well, lucky for us the Circle with Disney device has a pause button. Which means you can finally kid’s the internet the next time your kidos don’t clean their room all the way or leave something out, and you want them to pick it up. Oh, and when school comes around, HOMEWORK NEEDS DONE, PUSH THE PAUSE BUTTON!
- Get Insights – If you get insights on your children’s screen time, you can see where they are spending most of their time. If you use the Circle by Disney device, you can see where your kids are spending their time online by app or even category.
If you have children between the ages of 4 and 18 you’re going to love the Circle with Disney device! It helps parents filter content, manages screen time (I KNOW RIGHT), and stay informed with what your children are doing online. Oh, and get this! In about five minutes your Circle pairs with your router wirelessly and manages EVERY device in your home! YES, EVERY SINGLE DEVICE – smartphones, laptops, tablets, online gaming and more.
I have used the Circle with Disney device for a few weeks and absolutely love it! My personal favorite feature is the pause button and I love that it is small and easy to hide. I use it when my kids haven’t finished something they were supposed to have finished – chores, homework, etc. Rather than hearing in a minute 582 times, I just pause the internet and they take care of business. It’s an awesome device, something this home needed and it’s super easy to set up!
