*PARENTS: Manage devices at home

I've wanted to cover this topic for awhile, but wanted to do it well. Today I can share with you an EXCELLENT article that does it better than I could. 


Mike Daugherty originally shared "Limits, Locks, and Learning" on October 24, 2017, and I received it today via his newsletter "Help @ Home". This newsletter is free for anyone to subscribe to & I highly recommend it.


I will add that I personally use an app called "OurPact" that allows me to do many of the things these offer. It has a free version (not many features) and a paid-for version ($4.95/month) allowing me to manage all 3 of my daughters devices. The set-up isn't the easiest, but once you are in, it works GREAT! 

Don't hesitate - don't wait ... READ IT then share it and save it!
