Parental Control & Screen Time Management with OurPact

This post was sponsored by ParentsWare through a campaign with the OurPact 2.0 APP. All opinions are my own
The summer vacation time is here for many and in the near future for others, and with that we find that the kids have a lot of free time on their hands. As parents, we try to find activities and such to keep them busy, but we also find that with today's technology, that they can do reading time, play educational games and such all from the apps that we can get for our various devices. The apps and the technology we have can become part of our daily routines and with kids we learn that limits have to be set, especially when we find that they have a lot of extra time during the summer months. So when I came across the OurPact 2.0 app, I found that it was a great app to have in the home when there are kids and tech devices present.



With the OurPact app you get a great parental control and screen time management app that helps families take back family time and also set the limits when it comes to screen time and more. It allows kids to utilize their apps and devices so they can play those fun educational games and read those books that we can download to their devices. It also gives the control over screen time to parents, where it belongs. Allowing parents and caregivers to set the time limits on the phones and tablets and also teaching kids to be more responsible when it comes to their screen time.
I can appreciate that with the OurPact 2.0, I can not only set times, but everyone can see the times that are set, and I can control the time that kids are on their devices, from my own phone or iPad. We can also all view the schedules so that the kids can get into a routine of knowing when it is okay to be on their devices and when it is time for other things like family time, summer sports schedules and more!

Then when it comes to putting a parental control over my kids devices, I like that I can block certain sites and such from my phone. This can help keep my kids from seeing things I do not want them to see and clicking on those click bait links. And with the OurPact 2.0 I can get a tool that lets me track what sites my kids might be going to and giving me the tools I need to keep them safe as well. Making the OurPact 2.0 a must have app to have in any home this summer or any time of the year when you have kids and tech devices!

I think something like this would be really helpful for my niece and nephew.

This is so much needed to help parents with helping watch over a child's screen time on the computer! I will have to check into this!

This sounds like a decent program for internet monitoring.
