It’s summer and with a toddler and a preteen, it’s hard to manage everything all at once. I’m not saying who but sometimes one of my children like to sneak an electronic device up to their room and play on it until 4 am without us knowing.
We got a new wifi router and it allows me to see internet usage based on devices and I was confused when I saw that a device was online until 4am. That is when I decided to search for screen time in the app store. A few popped up but didn’t work and then I saw OurPact had great ratings and actually seemed to work so I gave it a try. I wanted to set a schedule so the iPad will stop at a certain time, not just shut the internet down but actually stop allowing apps to be played.
It actually worked.
