To my fellow parents raising kids in the “digital age” I feel your pain. Yet that pain doesn’t have to be so bad when you have someone in your corner. 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.
OurPact is the one app every parent needs to keep their children safe when online and teach them healthy digital habits. With OurPact, it is a breakthrough parental control app that harnesses the power of Internet and Application blocking in order to teach children proper device use and responsibility.

I have tried other parent control apps before and I wasn’t satisfied with them. I will try this one out. It seems to have everything I wanted in an app to protect my kids.
I am going to say that this is the last app you will need to download in terms of parental control apps. OurPact does fantastic work to keep kids safe.
This article is bringing down my stress levels. I am hesitant to get my kids a phone. Our pact looks to help parents like me who trust their kids, but don’t trust websites and companies.
Glad I could help with the stress levels. I do recommend you check OurPact out.
Glad to see that we can put tech to good use. This app is a no brainer. Gonna download soon!
Glad to hear it Chris.
Thanks for creating a great app! My spouse and I feel less stressed once we got this app last year when this site talked about it. This app is a must for any parent whose kids have a smartphone!
Thanks for sharing your experience sir. I have worked with OurPact for a bit and I know they are doing great work.
I listened to the podcast last week. It brought up a lot of points that I didn’t think about. We are looking to get our son a phone. I read recently the dangers of social media especially to teenagers and mental health. Happy to see this app to help prevent certain sites and apps for my son.
Thanks for checking out the podcast. I had a blast chatting with Michele. She and the team at OurPact does a phenomenal job.
This app is fantastic. I can keep track of screen time and get them off sites I don’t want them going to. I highly recommend this app.
Well said Devin. This app makes parents and kids accountable.
Not only does this app help me with keeping my kids off places I don’t want them to go, but they get all their homework done in a timely manner so they can use their devices. So glad I have that app.
That is a great point Nick. Really appreciate you sharing that aspect.
Thank you Art for sharing the news on this company. It looks like this is something I can use in the near future once we get our kids phones.
You are welcome Danny.
I have used it for a few years now and I absolutely love it. This is a must have for any parent.
NICE! Glad you shared your experience with OurPact.
Never knew something like this existed. Glad I learned about this app!
Glad I could help Frank.
Two things that really got me excited about this. 1. The GPS feature. 2. Being able to set time limits for screen time.
Those are two great features Robert.
It is sad that there are so many dangers out there for our kids, but reading your article this app combats those dangers. This is a parent’s dream.
I agree with you Will. Thankfully OurPact is one of the good parts of the internet.
We got this app last year. One of the biggest benefits that we have seen is that we are spending more time together. With screen time limits we have been doing more things as a family. That alone is worth it. Our kids are addicted to their devices.
YES!!! This is what it is all about. Spending time with family is what it is all about!
Great work Art. My family and I talked about Facebook being down last night. My kids said that it was a nice break from Instagram.
That is great to hear.Thanks for sharing. That is what OurPact is all about. They are about moderation when it comes to kids being online.
