Why Is Screen Time Limit Useful?
Too much time spent on the screen may affect children’s health physically and mentally. iKeyMonitor allows parents to limit the screen time on iOS and Android device by setting the maximum usage time of all apps. Parents control the time that children spend on devices so that their mental and physical health will not be influenced by over usage of cell phones.
Lack of Communication in the Real World
Various social media apps can be installed on a smartphone, such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Line, WeChat. Communication has never been faster and easier than ever before. Many young users find it rather interesting to chat with friends online. However, they will become less communicative and less responsive in the real world if they get used to talking with others via social media apps such as Facebook, Skype, WhatsApp. The face-to-face interaction between parents and children also decreases. It’s necessary to balance the time in the real world and in the cyber world.
There have been quite many reports that too much time spent in front of the device screen leads to various health issues. For instance, children’s eyesight will be weakened if they keep staring at the screen for a long time without break. It’s also noteworthy that long-time facing the screen exposures children to UV radiation, and may lead to the premature ageing. Children will look like old men. Obesity, aggressive temper, Amnesia may also happen to them.
Poor Self Control
Children are too young to control the usage of a cellphone by themselves. Some children cannot take their eyes off the smartphone screen when they should do their homework, go to bed, or have dinner with family around the table. Thus it’s every parent’s responsibility to control children’s device usage and teach them the right way of using a device. With iKeyMontior, parents can limit the usage of apps with specific rules. Children will know when they can play and when they should study, sleep and have dinner.
