We got the KoalaSafe unit send to us for evaluating purposes
Don’t you just wish sometimes that you could flip the switch on your kids online activities? I thought my life would be easier when I let my daughter play with an education game on my phone. The little I knew, it would consume an enormous part of her life.
My six-year-old recently tempted to take two smart devices to bed. When I demanded to turn all the electronics in, he was happy to do so, while hiding the backup under his pillow.
It’s one thing to let them use your table to do some extra reading for school, but how can you possibly know what else are they doing online? Yes, you can check the browser history, but how about preventing children from going where not supposed to go and only use the smart devices when it’s ok with you. Let’s talk online security for kids!
KoalaSafe is essential, a router that has a wireless network, which can be programmed to shut off. The idea is that you can have your kids’ devices be on the router, and then schedule service. For example, the internet is on from 7:00 – 9:00 AM. When it goes off, the kids know it’s time to put down their devices and play something else. Parents don’t have to worry about monitoring screen time or fighting with children when telling them it’s time to get off.
The KoalaSafe wireless network can be set to turn off at directed times so kids can’t access the Internet — saving parents from the bribes, fights or tantrums of having devices taken away! I usually have my scheduled set to shut off the connection at 7.30 pm to give kids some buffer time to get ready for the next day and have some screen-free time before they go to bed. Once the connection is out, kids have no other choice but walk away from their devices.
Create a schedule for every day to accommodate every crazy day of your life. The system works any participation on your end.
But How About Evil Sites?
Is there still a way to block individual sites – those with adult content along with those with a strong social media influence. Koala gives you a way to flip the switch on these sites
When Everything Else Fails…
You would be happy to know that there is a BIG RED BUTTON. That is an immediate shut-off option and an instant cure for a meltdown, talkbacks, rolled eyes… Go ahead push the button! Take the power back!
