Thankfully the team over at OurPact is someone that is in your corner. As you hand your child a smartphone or tablet there are many things that will stress you out. We want to protect our kids, but at the same time we want them to be able to communicate with us and their friends. OurPact is the most comprehensive parental control app and family locator. They have many levels of protection that are perfect for all families. Here are some of the ways you can get some peace of mind when you and your family use OurPact.
Creating A Pact In A Digital Age
When it comes to internet safety we want to have all the answers, but we in all honesty we do not. This is where OurPact comes into play. OurPact can help monitor what your kid is doing online. For the OurPact’s View, it gives visibility into your child’s online activity via automated periodic, on-demand or a private gallery screenshots, all encrypted for maximum safety. You can limit text message access through schedules, allowances, or manual blocks to ensure texting doesn’t cause distractions during homework time or family meals. There is a screen time allowance tool on OurPact. Your child can learn to budget their online time and know how much time they have each day on their device.
Practice What You Preach
One of the many things I learned when I spoke with Michele Havner this past week was that we need to practice what we preach. You can listen to that interview here. When we give our kids a tablet or smartphone we tell them that they should not be on their devices all day. Our kids are watching us. If they see us glued to a device they will follow suit. So if you tell them to go outside, you should go with them. After dinner go for a walk or shoot some hoops with them. We speak of having a well balanced diet when it comes to food. The same thing applies when it comes to our devices. We need to turn off our devices just as much as we are on them.
Ways To Connect Online And Offline
If you follow OurPact on social media you already know that they share many ways to enjoy time with your family. They share posts on games that you could play together or movies you can watch for family movie night. OurPact also shares articles on all sorts of topics. From checking in on your kid’s mental health or tips on how to get your kids up for school. They also share the latest digital trends and things we parents need to be on the lookout for when it comes to apps or dangerous trends online. It is no wonder why so many families use OurPact. I strongly suggest you check them out. It will give you peace of mind and they will help keep your kids safe.
