Smart Ways to Manage Your Child’s Smartphone.

With all pupils now firmly back to school, parents may feel the need to reduce screen time on phones and other devices.

Too much screen time can be linked with disrupted sleep; and unlimited streaming services and social media can distract from study, sport and result in very late bedtimes.

As smart phones have evolved, some very smart and simple ways of controlling screen time have also emerged. The old fashioned way of reducing screen time was to take away phones and devices, with the inevitable “please just a few more minutes” plea dominating bedtime.

Now parents can remotely control screen time, as well as limiting what children can access on their phones and tablets, all from the comfort of their own devices.
