In my household we use tools like Circle. The lure of the screen is just too great and these solutions, when used in combination with traditional parenting, ensure my children stare into the real world — at least for a few minutes a day.
Happily, the Circle controls have just solved this thorny little problem. It's a device you hook into your internet and then control with an app. Nothing is installed on phones, consoles, TVs and computers but it can monitor and control them all.
Circle [is] designed to make it easier for parents to use screen time as a reward for chores or other good behavior.
For kids who use multiple devices, computers, tablets, gaming consoles, Circle works on all of these to keep track of time and then turn it off…. You can do the kill switch on Fortnite parents!
With Circle, you don’t have to worry about hearing 'just 5 more minutes' when it's time to turn off the TV, or wonder if your kids are staying up past their bedtime scrolling through their devices.
The biggest name in parental controls is Circle, and the Circle Home Plus is their most popular product. It's an all-in-one unit that you control entirely via app, and it takes the pain out of parental controls.
For a more robust management system, I’ve found the Circle Home Plus one of the easiest add-ons around.
Manage Circle from any iOS or Android device.
