Do you wish you could manage your kids’ app & internet use on their devices, even when you are away from them? Check out this great new resource, it’s an app called OurPact. OurPact was created by ParentsWare, an award winning tech company that’s devoted helping parents.
Our family has used this app and it’s a great way to set schedules for when the kids can use their apps & the internet on their devices. What I love about this app is there is no more arguing over screen time in our house. Their apps magically disappear & reappear on their devices based on a schedule I have set.

You can always override schedules with the touch of a button on your phone, even if you are in a different location than your children. You can grant or block access at anytime from anywhere!
What OurPact CAN do:
- It can allow you to set a schedule for your child’s app & internet use on their devices

- It can allow you to turn access off during school hours, bedtime, chore time, dinner time and more
