Schedule Your Child’s Screen Time With OurPact

I’m excited to introduce you today to a wonderfully helpful app, OurPact. All opinions are my own.

Ourpact_SideText-02Have you ever stopped to think how much time your family is “Plugged in” on their tablets and smart phones? It does not take long for time to add up.  I know that I am guilty of loosing track of time when my kids are playing on the iPad. It happens to the best of us.

Then there is catching my kids playing when they are supposed to be working on something. Always so fun. In a digital world, we are letting our children have freedom with their devices that they might not be mature enough to handle.

OurPact is a free downloadable  application that is designed to make it easy for parents to look out for their families online usage. OurPact parental control lets you block or grant access to multiple devices in seconds right from your phone.

I love the abilities to build in schedules. It can be so tempting to pop on social media, or play a quick game of angry birds during homework or reading time, right? Admit it, how many times have you popped on Facebook instead of doing something. I am so guilty of this. If we as adults are tempted, how do we expect our children to be different? Well now we can be sure that during those times our kids devices are blocked so they can focus on the task at hand.


Building schedules is so easy. Wether you are helping homework time be about homework time, or preventing unsupervised internet browsing, OurPact can let you block and grant access in seconds. Each child can have their own profile, so you can set up the schedule that each child needs. It is not all or nothing.



parental-control-blockOurPact is by far the best parental control app I have tried. It is so easy to use, and it is helping teach my children that screen time is a privilege, not a right. 

Get OurPact and see what it can do for your family! For a free app to do this much, it is a winner in my book!

    I love this. My kids get specified time each day and we set a timer to make sure they stick to it!

  2. Our Pact is a great idea. I don’t mind the kids using their devices, but I don’t want them on them all day.

  3. This would be wonderful for us. It really is hard to get kids away from all the screens! This seems very helpful.

  4. This is probably the best way to keep kids untracked even if you get distracted. I know my kid I’ll probably watch is more than he should this would help a lot.

  7. I need these for my kids. I gotta admit, I’ve been letting electronics “babysit” my kids so I could get some work done.

  8. I think having parental controls over your child’s cellphone is not depriving them. It is teaching them discipline. Kids are easily distracted and we must teach them to focus on the task at hand. Thanks for the review. I will be recommending this app to my sister. Her son is the king of procrastination. LOL.

  14. I certainly will check that app. My son loves playing with his iPad or my iPhone and sometimes we lost track of how long he’s been playing. We need this!

  15. Kids spend way to much time in front of a screen these days. This is a great idea. I will have to share this with my friends with little ones.

  16. I am guilty of turning off the wifi and telling them that the internet only works at certain times. I like this idea so much better. :)

  24. I agree that it is very important to have a control on how much time our kids are spending time in playing games & it is good that we have Apps like OurPact to block the activity in few seconds. I am going to try it out right away.

  25. CourtneyLynne says:

    Oooooo this is something my disgusted needs! She can get pretty obsessed with her iPad at times!

  26. What a great way to stay on top of your child’s screen time. I know my kid tries to sneak in a few extra hours.
