More Tips for App Blocking


Communicate instead of control

The purpose of parents' supervision is not to completely control the kids, but to let them know the priority is.

Care more about the reality

When you find that kids are addicted to the virtual world, please bring them back and give them more solicitude and company.

Arrange a workout plan

Take time out every week to do exercises. You can also do outsides activities with your kids instead of immersing yourself in the digital world.

Earn playing time

Let them earn the entertainment time by completing their study plan and exercising, so they can focus more on their tasks.

Be kids' role model

Kids always imitate their parents' behaviors. If you are playing with your phones but let them study or exercise, it will be very difficult.

Ensure efficient screen time

Kids may be exposed to any content on the internet, so the quality of screen time for them should also be guaranteed.
