Did you know that COVID-19 has increased screen time for kids by 500%? Nearly half of American children spend more than six hours a day in front of a screen. Add in remote learning and this number gets even higher.
I know it can be hard to monitor screen time, especially with so many of us working from home and trying to manage distance learning at the same time. Luckily my kids are back in school, but we went through many long months of them working at home to complete school assignments and attend zoom meetings with their teachers. I found it difficult to monitor three school-aged children and their younger brother when I had my own work to complete and they could easily distract themselves with video games or YouTube videos. I am glad to have Circle Home Plus now, but wish we would have had it then. If the boys go back to remote learning for any reason in the future, Circle Home Plus will be a lifesaver!
Circle Parental Controls (affiliate link) is the simplest way for families to manage screen time and filter content on all their Internet-connected devices, from tablets and smartphones to gaming consoles and smart TVs. I am not the most tech savvy person so I was a little intimidated to set up the Circle Home Plus device, but it was really easy. Once I downloaded the app, I was able to follow the step by step onscreen instructions (which are also included in printed form with the device) to set it up.
Circle Home Plus (affiliate link) has so many useful features.
• Age-appropriate filters for different websites and apps (or block content all together)
• Time limits for both individual apps and categories of content
• Bedtimes that automatically disconnect devices from the Internet
• Pause/temporarily turn off Internet-connectivity for a single family member or everyone at the same time
• Focus Time to restrict access to certain sites for specific periods of the day—a perfect tool to keep distance learning or homework time on track
• Rewards: Reward your child with more screen time or a later bedtime, at the touch of a button
• History: Check out visited and filtered sites from the day's activity
• Track usage for yourself and your family. This information is insightful if trying to reduce screen time or stay on track with projects for work and school.
• With the Off Time feature, you can set up Off Times when internet is restricted to selected devices for important family times like dinner and game nights.
Circle Home Plus typically retails for $69 for a three-month subscription, $129 for a one-year subscription, or $299 for a lifetime subscription (all plans include the Circle Home Plus device and Circle App access).
