Parental control

How much time on the iPad is too much time? This is the fundamental question when it comes to parental control of iPad and other tablets. And just how much is too much can vary from family to family, but there are some solid rules about when the tablet should be put away any family should have in place.

Screentime

References are often made in the media about whether the US is “lagging” or “further ahead” of Europe or Japan or another nation.

But is that a bad thing? And is that really the whole story?

Screentime

“Mom, where’s my phone?” might be the most chilling words a parent hears in a given week. It means overturned couch cushions, retracing steps, and probably a few tears over the lost phone, and then definitely an absolute flood of tears over the consequences of losing it. It’s enough to make you forget that technology in many ways makes parenting easier. So, when a phone vanishes, what should you do? Can parental control software help out?

Excess mobile device usage

Mobile devices mean that you don’t have to be tied to a desk to play games or connect to the internet, and neither do your kids. In fact, more and more kids are spending some portion of their day using mobile devices like smartphones, tablets, and handheld games. But if you notice that your child is hunching over their device, you may start to wonder what all of these mobile devices are doing to your child’s posture. The good news is, parental control apps can help.
