If Your Kid Is Addicted To Apple’s iPhone Then Try This Monitoring System

Apple investors recently expressed their concern about smartphone addiction and its long-term effects on the health and overall wellness of kids and teens. With this topic at the forefront of the tech space, I wanted to tell you how Circle With Disney is able to help parents keep tabs on device usage, ensuring online safety and healthy screen time parameters for their children. Pairing wirelessly with the user’s home network, Circle is a breeze to setup and the companion app gives parents full control over content and screen time with the following features:

  • Bedtime™ – Automatically disconnects devices from Wi-Fi at scheduled times
  • Pause – Ability to turn off network Wi-Fi at any time
  • Custom monitoring and control of the apps children access (ex.: Only 1 hour of Instagram per day)

I’m including more information below for your reference. If you’re interested in learning more about the effects of screen time of children, I’m more than happy to put you in touch with our resident child psychologist.
