There are so many things about the digital age that have improved our lives, but as a parent, I am all too familiar with the potential dangers it can pose for kids. Keeping children safe online is a constant battle but now there is a genius app that helps parents control their children's Internet use.
Jamie Oliver revealed the "life-saving" OurPact app in a candid parent-to-parent video via his Facebook Page. The app ultimately lets you control the house WiFi and set limits on how much time your children are spending on their devices. "Basically, what's really good is you can set up a routine as a parent for when WiFi goes on and off and it also blocks off apps so they can still use their tech for doing homework and stuff like that but not apps and not WiFi; so this is genius," he says.
OurPact app lets parents create schedules; block all Internet and app use at any time; set time limits for when the WiFi goes on and off; and even reward them with the allowance feature, all with one handy and free app download. Now where's my smartphone?
