Managing Screen Time With Circle on NETGEAR Parental Controls
These days, you are bound to encounter people of all ages who enjoy their screen time. Technology has allowed us to access the content we love very easily, whether it be on laptops, tablets, or mobile phones. We’re able to catch up on our favorite TV shows, see what our friends are up to on social media, and even join the gaming frenzy all at our fingertips.
While convenient, spending too much screen time does have its downside. According to a 2017 census released by Common Sense Media, children between the ages of two and four years old spend an average of two hours and 40 minutes each day behind a screen and increases as they grow older. The American Academy of Pediatrics says children under the age of two shouldn’t have solo screen time and children aged two to five years should be limited to screen time of one hour per day. Some of the consequences linked to overexposure can include hyperactivity, less sleep, delays in language development, focusing capabilities, and social skills.
The good news is there are solutions out there to help you manage your children’s online screen time. Circle with Disney allows you to set time limits for games & apps, ensuring they only get the amount of screen time that you allow. Additionally, you are able to set age-appropriate filters to make sure they are only viewing content on websites & apps that you deem suitable. Other helpful parental control features include viewing Usage and History, Pausing Internet, Ad Block, Safe Search and more!
