If you have read our previous blog, then you already know that there are many things that you can do to manage your child’s screen time. How much (if any) screen time you give your child is entirely up to you, but no matter how long they have on their screens, our child care facility in Fairfield wants to help make sure that time is spent safely and wisely. Although the tips our day care center have already given you can be very helpful, there are many applications out there that can help as well! The following is our list of the top screen time management apps:

  • Kids Media – This app is available on iOS and Android, and it goes beyond just showing you what things are rated. Kids Media will help you to decide if the content that your child is using is suitable for their age and maturity level. It will also tell you what content you can expect from the game, move or app, and it gives you a rating.
  • iRewards – If you have decided to allow your child to earn their screen time, then this app is a great option. iRewards can help you to keep track of chores and activities your child has completed.
  • Screen Time – Just like it sounds, Screen Time helps you to effectively manage your child’s screen time. This app allows you to block different apps at different times. For example, during quiet time, you can block the use of games and still allow reading apps.

These are just a few of the many helpful screen time management apps available. Learn more when you stay tuned for our next blog!
