As a parent, I’ll be the first to admit sometimes our screen time gets the best of us. We’ve all been there and indulged in too much time, or maybe you were surprised by the access your child has to certain apps and sites. Parents, meet Circle. Circle is a wonderful parental control service that comes with optional app and in home devices. If you have kids who have access to the internet or any screen time, you need Circle.
What Is Circle?
I recently downloaded the Circle app and paired with my new Circle Home Plus device. This has been a game changer in our home. Not only do I feel safe knowing my children are protected online, but I am so happy with the healthy limits we have set as a family.
Did you know COVID-19 has caused a 500% increase in screen time for kids. Nearly half of American children spend more than six hours a day in front of a screen. Add in the fact that most are still participating in distance learning, further increasing screen time. Circle can help families take control of their digital habits.
The Circle Home Plus device connects with your router to manage every Internet-connected device on your home network. Use the Circle App to operate Circle and manage mobile devices (iOS and Android) everywhere. A Subscription includes access to all features such as filters, time limits, focus time, usage, pause, rewards, history, bedtime and location. Circle is committed to making families’ lives better, online and off.
5 Reasons Parents Need Circle
Filter Age Appropriate Content – Parents can set approved (or block inappropriate) content by age. You can easily customize settings to filter for individual family members and then apply to social media, videos, and games for both apps and websites. This is so important to me as a mom. I can give my 16 year old access to different information than I would my 9 year old.
Monitor Your Childs Activity – I love that you can log in and see exactly what sites or apps are visited and filtered throughout the day. This is helpful to know exactly what your kids are seeing online and may help set a new filter for you in the future.
Manage Screen time – Decide how much time you find appropriate for your kids to spend on individual apps or websites. You can also set limits for categories like games, social media, or news. Kids are notified, or can check anytime to see how much time they have left.
Keep An Eye On Location – With Circle you can track your kids through their mobile devices. All it takes is the tap of a button. Family members are notified when you request their location. This is so helpful for teens
Set a Device Bedtime – Ensure your kids get the sleep they need. Simply set custom bedtimes for each family member along with a gentle reminder to go to sleep.
Personal Parent Review
Our family is big on adventure and learning. We are on the internet daily and I love that my kids share our love for knowledge. With Circle, I feel as though I have a safety net in place as my kids learn about digital citizenship. By putting these safety measures and healthy habits into practice, you are teaching your child healthy digital boundaries. This teaches limits, patients and of course allows for more time in the word outside of technology. Circle has given us a more balanced life with technology and real world experiences. We have only seen the benefits from this fantastic app and device. I would recommend it to all parents as a must have!
