The Screen Time mission

Screen Time is here to help parents ensure their kids are discovering all that childhood has to offer, online and off. The Screen Time app provides simple monitoring and management tools to achieve a happy balance… argument free!

As a parent, it’s important to know and understand what your children are up to in order to guide them, to be a parent to them.

Incredibly, children are spending over 7 hours a day on their smartphones, this is significantly more than the recommended healthy amount of 2 hours.

This technology revolution has brought some incredible benefits to us all, but an excess of anything can be unhealthy.

What started off as “a great gift” has now become the source of daily arguments where parents are continuously “pestering” their kids to put down the phone and engage in actual playtime outside, family chat at the dinner table, concentrate on their homework and to get a good night sleep.

Parents are exhausted with the everyday battle and wonder how this all happened.

And the facts are staggering.

Did you know?

73% of teenage kids have a smartphone¹

Kids who have a smartphone spend an average of 7.5 hours on it

75% of kids take their phone to bed and 95% of those check social media during the night²

50% of kids admit to being addicted to their phone³

What parents need to know first…

The key for parents is to set boundaries. But first they need to know some basic facts:

How many hours per day
are the kids on their phone?

What apps are they using
and for how long?

What apps are they downloading
and am I comfortable with them?

Which websites are they visiting?
Are they safe or appropriate?

In today’s digital age, concerned parents simply need to know the answers to these questions.

Screen Time can provide this information 100% free of charge. Forever.

Armed with this information, parents can then manage their kids’ screen time and app usage.

Some parents prefer to use remote control tools to set appropriate limits and boundaries and avoid the daily battles.

Accordingly, we have also built a set of remote control features that allow parents from their phone (or computer) to manage all of the above with the ease of just a few clicks. As an added benefit, we provide a no-hassle (no credit card required) 14 day free trial of these remote control features.

We understand that smartphones are here to stay and provide far more benefits than issues for kids. However, just like seatbelts in cars, we will all look back and wonder what we were thinking when we provided smartphones to our 10 year olds without the appropriate limits and boundaries.
