Screen Time App Will Help The Whole Family Peel Their Faces Off Their Phones, Including You

Like lots of us, Tali Orad wanted to get control over her family’s screen time. So she used her experience as a software developer to create something she calls Screen, which is a device and an app that lets parents control the whole family’s use of electronic devices.

First, you hook up the hardware device to the TV and install the app on tablets and phones. Then the family sets up rules for screen time, like no screens at the dinner table, and makes a family contract. You can customize Screen to shut down devices at the appropriate times and it even gives users a few warnings first, so they can save what they’re working on and “mentally prepare” for screen time to end. The struggle is real!

Screen also lets parents see what their kids are doing online and alerts parents when their kids try to unplug the hardware or uninstall the app. It’s supposed to retail for $139, but now it’s available for preorder for $99 and has an expected delivery date sometime this summer.

So if you’re tired of looking at the tops of your kids heads during meals like this mom was, this could be just what you need. And it’s good that it sets limits for the whole family, not just the kids. Screens aren’t the enemy, but we all spend too much time staring at our phones and tablets. So now you might be able to get your kids to turn off their screens without a fight or tantrum and you’ll get a reminder that you should limit your screen time too!
