Be aware of how much of your kids’ data is being shared in 2019

by Screen Time Team on 03/01/2019
We take it as a given that our phones are ours, that we control what they do and how they do it. But the truth is very different.

Smart choices lead to safer kids.

Our phones, and the phones our kids use, are often collecting and sending out enormous amounts of data. While the idea of a child being tracked by somebody who means them harm is almost completely a Hollywood fantasy, there are other concerns to consider. For example, marketing that targets children and forms a “profile” of them before they’re adults who know what they want. But while you can’t entirely block data collection, you can tightly control it.

Control App Installs

Parental control apps can help you control app installs, which is a big part of the privacy battle. A shocking number of apps thrive not on ads or even sales, but on collecting data about you without your knowledge and sending it to third parties. The only truly effective way to prevent it is to carefully limit the number of apps downloaded to a specific phone, especially apps that are designed to appeal to kids. Use software to block certain types of apps, such as free games, and have a process in place for your family to discuss which apps they want to download.

Look At App Permissions And Phone Settings

Major app stores will have a set of “permissions” you agree to when installing the app, and any app your children want to download should be scrutinized closely. It’s a safe bet that the more permissions the app wants, such as access to your photos, access to your location, and similar data, the more likely it is to be collecting and selling that information to the highest bidder. If you don’t like the permissions an app is requesting, it’s better to leave it on the digital shelf unless it’s absolutely necessary. You can also cut apps off at the pass by disabling certain features, like Bluetooth and GPS, using iPhone parental controls or Android settings.

 

Protect their privacy.

Limit Online Time

Another way to control data collection is to limit how often kids use their phones. You likely already have rules in place that limit phone use over family dinner, during homework time, and after bed. This may already be enough to keep data collection to a minimum, but if you’re considering putting in limits, this will just be another incentive.

Teach Children About Data

Knowledge is the best defense against anyone who wants to exploit you, so kids should be taught from an early age how these systems work, why they do what they do, and how to defend against them. The most insidious thing about this data collection was that it was done, to some degree, with our consent and by small degrees. One app, by itself, can’t get enough data on you to matter. Hundreds of apps constantly gathering data is another matter entirely.

Teaching kids to be smart consumers is always time well spent, and as they understand the people selling them things are not their friends, they’ll develop good habits and critical thinking around products of all sorts, not just apps.

Five Tech New Year’s Resolutions for your family in 2019

by Screen Time Team on 27/12/2018
A new year often inspires us to make a change, especially around how much time we spend on screens. If you want your family to put down the tablets and do more together, try making these five family resolutions.

Make tech and tech rules part of your family’s resolution list for the new year.

  1. Check Your Kids’ Privacy Settings

 

Between malicious software and operating system updates, today’s reliable, safe settings are tomorrow’s wide-open door into the location, wallet, and psyche of your kids. Make a resolution to regularly check the privacy settings of your kids’ devices, and if the end-user license agreement (EULA) is changed, you should read it over. This should also apply to any new apps your kids want to download, as their permissions might be questionable. Make a point of showing kids what you’re looking at, and why you find it worrisome.

 

  1. Report Cyberbullying

 

Most of us are polite, or at least self-aware, on the internet, but there are still plenty of bullies online. Kids should learn that the only way to fight a bully is to go over their heads and expose their behavior, so make a family resolution to report cyberbullying. And don’t think cyberbullying is limited to kids; how many hostile, angry people do you have to deal with on the internet trying to push you around? When dealing with these people, make a point of teaching your kids how you handle it, so they can apply the same lessons.

 

  1. Set Up A Regular Tech-Free Schedule

 

There are some times of the day that tech just shouldn’t be around: Dinner time, bedtime, family game night, and so on. Sit down with your family and work out what times you’d like to be completely focused on each other. Some of these will be non-negotiable, like dinner, but take a close look at where and when you use technology as a family. Do you really need your phones around? Also consider tech-flexible times, where perhaps you can’t stop your tech use but you can limit it.

Set aside the screens this new year.

 

  1. Model Good Behavior

 

On that note, also resolve to model good behavior for each other. Every parent remembers those moments as kids where they were told “Do what I say, not as I do,” and how they chafed against it. By modeling good behavior around screens, like establishing boundaries for work and limiting how and when you use apps, you’ll make it easier for your kids to do the same, especially if they’re getting more permission this year.

 

  1. Take Time To Talk

 

By far the most useful method of reducing your kids’ screen time, or at least your anxiety about what they’re doing, is to make a point to talk to them about what they’re doing online. Ask them what apps they’re using, who their friends are on those apps, what those apps do, and if they have any questions for you. Kids will appreciate you taking the time, and it’ll let you spot and stop problems before they get any worse.

 

What other resolutions you make will depend on your family. But you’ve got an opportunity to make a fresh start in this new year, so make the most of it. To learn how we can help you keep your resolutions, sign up!

How Much Should You Let Kids Use Screens During The Holidays?

by Screen Time Team on 20/12/2018
The holidays are a lot of fun, but they can also leave kids with lots of time and little to do. Relaxing the screen time rules a little bit can be tempting. But is it a good idea, or will it make the holidays a horror show?

The holidays are primarily for family. Screens can step back for a bit.

Reward Or Babysitter?

The first question to ask is whether your considering changing the rules because it’s an easy way to get kids out of your hair. The holidays are stressful for everyone; there are gifts to shop for, food to prepare, homes to clean, trips to plan, and sometimes the kids need to entertain themselves. The trade-off is that once school and other commitments start back up, it may be difficult to reimpose the rules, especially with younger children. Instead, ask yourself if there are tasks kids can help you out with, or if there aren’t other things they can do.

New Toys, New Temptations

Another factor to consider is that, especially as kids get older, new screens will almost certainly be coming in the door. Hopefully, you’ve had a conversation with your extended family about what gifts are appropriate at what age, but as we all know too well, some family members might forget or simply decide you can’t punish them.

A new toy in the house makes sticking to the rules particularly important. Children should understand that novelty doesn’t mean the rules go out the window, and carving out a “temporary” exception might lead to tears when homework comes back into the picture.

Have kids earned screens this holiday season?

Are They Behaving?

That said, it is worth considering how they’re sticking to the rules already, and how they’re behaving in general. If, for example, they’re being polite to their relatives, staying off their phones except for the appointed times, and are otherwise staying within the rules, it might be worth giving them a little more time to play games or chat with friends.

If possible, set these standards before the holidays unfold. Some rules should be in place no matter what, such as no phones at bedtime and screens put away when it’s time for dinner, but you can be flexible elsewhere if they’re well-behaved. One approach might be to either shift the hours you have your parental control app set to lock the phone, or for older kids, to offer them a deal where for every chore they help with, they can bank a little more screen time to use.

Getting Back to Your Normal Routine

However, it should be clear that this is temporary. You might even want to set a specific end date a few days before school starts back up to help them get back into the habit. You may also want to have them select a few other ways to keep themselves entertained over the course of the holidays, such as a reading challenge, playing outside, or decorating the house.

The holidays can easily drive all of us a little up the wall, but that doesn’t mean we need to hide in our screens. With some good conversation and some clear standards, the holidays can be happier. To learn how Screen Time can help, try it for free!

Teens And Phones: A Guide to Christmas Gift Safety

by Screen Time Team on 17/12/2018
It's nearly the holiday season, and many parents are weighing either giving their kids phones for the first time, or upgrading them to “grown-up” smartphones from flip phones.

But just like you wouldn’t give them the keys to a new car without laying down the rules of the road, there are a few steps, from installing parental control apps to in-depth conversations with your children, you should take before the phone goes under the tree.

Do Some Reading

The “hottest” apps and games have a short shelf-life, particularly on the internet. But it’s still worth becoming familiar with what’s hot and what’s current now. Open up the iTunes store or the Google Play store and look at what’s being promoted and what the top-selling apps are. If an app your children are talking about is unfamiliar, take a moment to read its ad copy and to research it online, or ask your fellow parents about it.

Set Rules And Standards

To start with, you should have a family meeting to discuss the house rules when it comes to smartphones. A good starting point is the rules you have for other screens, such as televisions or video game consoles. Lay out what you expect, why you expect it, and give the rest of the family space to discuss their views on it and what they’d like to see. For example, you might impose strict schedules such as no phones after bedtime, no phones during dinner, and so forth, and ban or restrict certain apps.

Just make sure everyone understands why the rules are in place, as well as what they are. Remember that the door should be left open; as your preteen becomes a teen, for example, they may need to receive calls from a boss or a volunteer coordinator.

Use Parental Settings

Sometimes, apps can trick adults as well as teens. Recently, malicious apps have been using biometric features like Touch ID to try and swindle users. Take a moment, before the phone goes under the tree, to set up certain features like blocking credit card transactions or preventing the phone from distributing certain types of data such as location. Be sure to password-protect these settings as well. This will help block swindlers and keep kids safer.

Set Up Parental Control Apps

Beyond the settings, install parental control software to ensure the rules are followed. These apps can prevent other apps from being downloaded, set a schedule where only certain apps can be used, such as during school hours, and can even lock phones completely during set periods of time, most notably bed time. This software should reflect the agreed-upon rules you’ve already laid out, and kids should understand the app on their phone isn’t negotiable.

Buying your children a phone is a big step, whether it goes under the tree or they buy it with the money they’ve earned throughout the year. Having these conversations now will go a long way towards preventing tears and arguments later, as well as keeping them safe. To learn more, sign up to Screen Time.

6 reasons to install Screen Time on the kids’ new devices this Christmas

by Screen Time Team on 16/12/2018
Getting the kids to switch off their brand new device this Christmas, or any other time for that matter, can prove...challenging. Here is where a parental control app like Screen Time steps in to save the day.

 

The real challenge at Christmas is the juggling act involved with keeping everyone – big kids, small kids AND grown ups – happy, while avoiding conflict and cross frowns at all costs.

It’s a day of high expectations from all parties. The parent would prefer the day to resemble his/her childhood Christmas. And the kids have their own ideas. Ideas which can quite often involve a device of some sort. Especially if they just unwrapped a new shiny one from under the tree. And this is when problems occur.

Attempt to switch their devices off mid game/selfie, and the festive period is less ‘ho ho ho’ and more, ‘Blue Christmas

Thankfully our app is pretty good at putting a stop to such conflicts.

There are lots of other ways to use the Screen Time features to your advantage on Christmas Day too. Below we’ve highlighted classic Christmas day occurrences and how to handle them cleverly with our app:

Presents!

Screen Time feature: Daily Time Limit

Present unwrapping is easy screen-free time. Unless unwrapping…something with a screen. Will this be your child? Solution: get Screen Time uploaded onto their device before you wrap it for full festive control from day one. Set a Daily Time Limit of your choosing and their apps will stop working once they have reached their daily allowance. Don’t let their big day pass in a device bubble! 😀

Food Preparation

Screen Time feature: Awarding Bonus Time

Gone are the days when parents do all the work. Offer the kids bonus time on their device for helping in the kitchen. You’ll sneak in a spot of extra bonding time with them while you’re at it. One potato peeled = 2 minutes bonus time. 1 carrot chopped = 2 minutes bonus time. One glass of Eggnog poured for mommy = 10 minutes of bonus time 😉

Begrudging call to a family member

Screen Time feature: Task List

This is a controversial one that raises the ethical dilemma: should we bribe our children to make contact with our loved ones to wish them a merry Christmas? If your child will happily lift the phone to make that call to Granny on Christmas day, then good work! Or, if like many of us, your darling child would rather play with their new toys than thank the kind soul who sent them, simply add the call to their task list and reward with your preferred amount of bonus time. Is this bribery? Yes. We think sometimes that’s ok. Happy child, happy Granny, happy Christmas  🙂  Failing that, suggest to child in question that they FaceTime Granny from their shiny new device.

The Feast

Screen Time Feature: Instant Pause

This part of the day is all about the food, the crackers, the bad jokes, the reminiscing about past family Christmases, the occasional massively inappropriate comment made by older generations etc. For many, this gathering happens once a year at best. If you want everyone to be 100% present, use the Pause feature on your kids devices for their full attention.

The Games

Screen Time feature: Schedules

Schedules is a brand new feature of ours! Select times of day that you would like your child’s apps to simply…stop. Before you wrap their device, why not install Screen Time and set up a ‘Family Games’ time. So when it’s time for that annual game of charades to begin, their device will automatically stop working for the length of time that you chose during setup. Let Screen Time be the bad guy! Who knows, they might have so much fun they forget to switch their device back on before the day is done.

Bedtime

Screen Time feature: Bedtime Blocker

Grown ups snoring on the sofa; the closing credits of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ are blasting out of the TV – this can mean only one thing: Christmas Day is complete. For the adults at least. The Bedtime Blocker is there to ensure kids can’t use their devices at that crucial time of day when they should be winding down and screen free. Seeing as it’s Christmas though, why not change the kids Bedtime Blocker on their device to a bit later than normal? Chances are they’ve earned it.

Merry Christmas from all at Screen Time! 🎅🏽

Parental Control Apps Help Kids With News Stress

by Screen Time Team on 06/12/2018
Helping kids to engage with the news in a healthy, productive way can be a struggle.

Teaching kids to engage with the news may be the best thing you do for them.

Even the most enthusiastic news fan may want to keep certain headlines away from their children, or at least discuss the issues the news is going to bring up in depth and in a way they can understand. Adults can also struggle with this; it’s colloquially known as “headline stress,” where the news overwhelms your emotional capacity to keep pace.

Managing headline stress is becoming harder and harder as TVs proliferate, radios become louder, and, of course, when there’s a constant stream of news alerts and breaking headlines in your pocket. It’s important for kids to want to engage with the news, but they also need to learn how not to be carried away by an endless torrent of headlines. How can parental control software help kids manage the flood of news?

Blocking Notifications And Apps

Parental assistance apps can help by blocking notifications. App notifications can take away our ability to engage with it at a time of our choosing, by prompting us to take out our phone and look at the latest antics. Instead of following that prompt, blocking the notification will allow your children to focus on schoolwork, and let you intercept upsetting headlines first so you can talk them over with your kids first.

Similarly, there may be questionable apps that try to exploit news, whether it’s serious topics or celebrity gossip, to gather data from kids or mislead them about certain topics. Some apps even offer outright propaganda. Parental control apps will allow you to filter these questionable apps out.

Screen time is better shared

Creating ‘News Time’

Another effective tool is that you can create “news time” with the family where everyone can look at digital newspapers or listen to news podcasts and alerts and discuss the major issues. This is particularly useful if there’s a homework assignment involving the news, as you can help teach your kids to approach the news with critical thinking and use your phones to research unfamiliar topics.

Remember that you too should abide by ‘news time.’ Headline stress can affect everyone, and kids will be able to pick up on whether you’ve seen an upsetting news item.

Limiting Engagement

There’s also a time and a place to read the news, especially upsetting news. We all know the temptation to look at your phone when an alert goes off, and parental control software can not only block alerts, but lock off a phone except for emergency calls between certain hours of the day. This will keep kids from staring at their phones after bedtime, reading the news when they should be paying attention in math class, and otherwise controlling engagement to keep it at a healthy level.

There’s no perfect solution to headline stress. We’re more aware, more informed, and have more access to current events than any other time in history, and it’ll be difficult, if not impossible, to keep children away from something so omnipresent. Instead, you can keep the torrent of information from overwhelming your kids, and teach them how to critically evaluate and otherwise approach the news.

Tips for Keeping Smartphones from Harming Your Kids’ Grades

by Screen Time Team on 26/11/2018
Kids and adults alike can be easily distracted from their responsibilities by their phones. But it's one thing if a chore is half-done, and quite another when grades start to slip.

 

Kids can struggle with grades for many reasons, but excessive phone time doesn’t help.

If you think your children’s struggles with grades are because of their phones, what should you do?

Diagnose The Problem

First, take a serious look at the problem. There are many reasons good grades can begin to slip. Some kids are distracted, but others just need more help with the material, or other concerns may be coming to the fore. This is especially true as tweens and teens start adding to their schedules, assuming more responsibilities, joining more after-school activities, and as their workload picks up.

Furthermore, a jump in phone use can have many causes. For example, it’s common for people who feel overwhelmed to just not deal with their workload and watch TV or play games instead. So before jumping right to the phone, look at the whole situation as objectively as you can.

Talk It Through

Before you go in and take the phone away, or install parental control apps, you should sit down with your kids, discuss your concerns, and explain the actions you’re taking and why. They won’t necessarily be happy about it, of course, but they’ll need to understand your concerns and why this is happening. Be sure to leave the door open for them to tell you about concerns they might have. Make it a discussion, and be sure everyone walks away understanding everyone else’s perspective.

Some screens help, some screens hinder.

Ask Teachers

You should also consult with teachers about your concerns, for a few reasons. One, teachers can tell you what they see their students doing on their phones, and give you an idea about what’s going on. Two, teachers can give you a list of programs and websites that they use during class, so that you can configure parental control software to allow those apps and nothing else during school hours. And three, if there are other areas of concern, such as signs of depression or a negative relationship with classmates, teachers may be able to tell you what’s happening because of their unique perspective on kids’ lives.

Don’t Go Cold Turkey

Contrary to popular belief, “cold turkey” probably isn’t the way to go with children and their screens. In some cases, it may simply be unworkable, such as when kids need their phone to pick up shifts at a job or volunteering opportunity, or to work with their classmates on group projects through video calls or online study groups.

Instead, work out a plan that balances your concerns against their needs. One tried and true rule is that no games or TV may be played until their homework is done, but there are several other approaches worth taking, such as “paying” for chores in screen time, or using parental control software to set strict limits on what can be used at what times.

Responsible phone use isn’t just a good thing for grades, it’s a useful lifelong skill that will teach young ones how to manage their time effectively. To learn how Screen Time can help, try it for free.

Should You Create a Family Screen Time Contract?

by Screen Time Team on 15/11/2018
Families should agree on how phones are used.

Family With Teenage Children Eating Breakfast In Kitchen

We’ve all chafed under an arbitrary rule. Perhaps it’s a uniform code at work that makes no sense, perhaps it’s a homeowner’s association demand that we only put certain plants in our gardens, but we’ve all asked ourselves “Why does this stupid rule exist?” Kids often feel the same way, especially if rules are handed down to them and they’re not told why they’re expected to follow them.

And for their screens, in particular, a screen time parental control contract may help them understand, and stick by, the rules.

What Is A Screen Time Contract?

A screen time contract is really nothing more than writing down the rules for screens for the whole family, preferably after talking about why the rules are in place. A typical contract will include “no phone” times, such as at the dinner table or during after-school homework time; what times are allowed for screen time; what rights parents reserve, such as removing applications from phones and when those rights kick in; and punishments for breaking the rules.

Usually, the rules are enforced with parental control software.

What Does A Screen Time Contract Include?

Any screen time contract should clearly lay out the rules that the entire family is expected to follow; exceptions in certain scenarios, such as going out; punishments for breaking the rules, which are usually having screen time taken away; and a provision that allows you to revise the contract as circumstances change. Before you know it, your elementary schooler will be a teen with a job, after-school obligations, and dates, so the contract should be able to change with everyone’s needs.

Phones shouldn’t interrupt family time. Contracts can also include other rules. For example, if kids can earn more time on game consoles or their phones by doing chores, include a chore schedule and how much time they earn for how much time they put into a chore.

A cheerful family plays board games at home.

Why Have A Screen Time Contract?

The contract serves a few purposes. First, it gets the rules written down, so nobody can claim that they didn’t know what was expected of them. Every parent has heard this argument at least once, so heading it off at the pass will save a little aggravation.

Secondly, writing out the rules gives everybody in the family a right to weigh in on the rules and whether they need revision. For example, kids might make the case that they need certain apps enabled to research papers at school or that they should be allowed to play games on their phones while waiting at the dentist’s office. Whether parents agree is up to them, but at least kids can feel they took their best shot.

Finally, it sets the standard for everyone. If the rules are fair, apply to everybody, and are discussed by everybody, kids are less likely to feel like they’re being singled out or picked on.

It also helps parents to model behavior for kids. If you stick to the contract, they’re more likely to, and if they break the contract, they know the cost.

Want to try out a family contract? Get your Screen Time family contract here! Remember though – parents have to stick to their part of the contract too!

Contracts are just one tool in the screen management toolbox. To learn more about parental control software, try Screen Time for free!

Bus Stop Safety Requires Addressing Kids’ Phone Use

by Screen Time Team on 08/11/2018
Everyone is easily distracted by their phone. We've all seen the driver yelling at their phone while blowing a red light, or a pedestrian so wrapped up in texting they step into a busy street. Kids in particular, unfortunately, can be susceptible to the lure of the phone while walking to and from the bus stop. How do we encourage kids to keep their phones in their pockets?

school bus is running through the street

Check In On Safety BasicsIt helps to start with a review of basic safety. Kids should know not to walk in the middle of the road, to use sidewalks wherever possible and to stay on the shoulder on more rural roads, to stick to crosswalks to change sides of the street, to look both ways before crossing, and to wear reflective, highly visible clothing if they’re walking after the sun goes down. A refresher on these rules never hurts, especially as the winter months see more kids out in the dark on their way home.

Establish Phone Rules

Add to these basic rules a set of phone rules. For example, if your kids need to use their phone to get around because you’ve just moved to the neighborhood, start by setting a rule that they can only use audio directions over a speaker, instead of headphones. Kids shouldn’t be allowed to play games in areas where they need to pay special attention to their surroundings, such as dirt roads or roads without sidewalks, . In areas with sidewalks, you can relax rules about music and headphones, but kids should understand that their safety is their responsibility, and all it takes is a distracted driver and a distracted pedestrian meeting at the wrong time.

There will need to be some exceptions. Kids should be able to send texts and take calls, especially for their own safety and, as they get older, to communicate with homework partners and employers. But you should curate the list of who kids can call and when.

Kids need to understand when to listen to adults.

Install Software

The question, of course, is how you enforce this, and parental control software can help. Kids should understand why the software is in place and what apps will be available during their school commute and why. Games, music software, and social media apps, in particular, should be filtered, and consider in some cases making use of the time lock that prevents the phone from being used at all.

Set The Right Tone

The most important step, however, is to lead by example. Most kids learn how to use their phone, for good or for bad, from how their parents use their phones. If you’re constantly distracted by texts, games, and apps when you should be watching where you step, or watching the road, kids will assume that this is just how adults go through the world, and start imitating them. Make a point of turning off your phone, only using headphones where appropriate, and modeling the right behavior.

Parental control apps can help parents keep kids safe, whether they’re walking on the side of the road or being driven to school. To learn more, try Screen Time for free!

Three easy offline activities to keep the kids distracted this Thanksgiving

by Screen Time Team on 07/11/2018
Thanksgiving, in an ideal world, is a valuable time to be with our families. To laugh, to embrace one another, to joyfully reminisce about the good old days. To make new memories and enjoy a day full of meaningful conversations with loved ones. This scenario is of course completely fictional for most. Anyone with children who claims their Thanksgiving was in any way straightforward or dreamlike, is probably bending the truth quite significantly. Especially if they were the ones hosting the festivities.

There’s the late-night food prep, the cleaning and decorating, the mental preparation for pending potential or inevitable family dramas. Not to mention the daily challenges (to put it politely) set mostly by the smallest person/people who share your home.

It is definitely tempting to give the kids some bonus screen time on their tablet or phone just to keep them out of the way while we dress and stuff the turkey, set tables, quietly glug eggnog etc. With the parental controls Screen Time provides, this is easy to do without the usual fear of overindulgence/online dangers/switch-off meltdowns.

And that’s fine.

Or, rather than lose our children to their devices while we do all of the work, we could always find ways to get them involved with the preparations (bear with us here).

The tasks you set needn’t be anything complicated. Baking something simple or making table decorations for example not only gets them away from their screens, it will also get them using and developing their creative skills, math skills, science, reading, time telling…the list goes on.

Who knows, you might even bond a bit too.

Then once your house is filled with the sweet smells of pumpkin pie and your table is scattered with lovingly crafted decorations, you could treat your offspring to some bonus time on their device as a ‘well done for being so helpful’ reward. Which also means more ‘you’ time later on. Everyone wins 😉

We’ve scoured the pages of Pinterest to find the best Thanksgiving recipes and crafts for you to try with your kids. Not only that, but we at Screen Time Labs have MADE each one to ensure they are as quick and as easy as promised (kids attention spans vs parents patience levels were taken very seriously during the testing period).

 

Evidence is posted below in our quick video tutorials, each lasting less than 60 seconds.

We’d love to see your creations. Feel free to share on here or on our Facebook, Pinterest or Twitter feeds using #kidsunplugged.

Successful AND unsuccessful attempts are all welcome! Good luck 🙂
