Quite often kids just can’t stop playing on their devices. I know when I ask my kids to stop; I always get answers such as:
“One more minute”
“Wait I need to finish this”
“I need to do this”
... And the list can go on. There is always a good reason to keep on playing. Even if they play fun educational apps, time need to be controlled. The iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad are great devices but can be sometimes be addictive!
Well if you are like me and face similar situation, try:
Game Time Limit for Parents
I was delighted to find such a useful tool app for parents. Time Limit for Parents just does what it says; it limits the time spent on iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad. It is really easy to use and all parents will love it.
Simply download the app
Enter the amount of play time
Create your personal parent password
Time Limit for Parent is a must have tool app for parents. It allows you to set a time for play. Agree with your kids on a set amount of play time for the day, before school, lunch or bed time and set the timer. You can choose from 1 minute to 24 hours. Then set the timer, enter your password and press start.
The countdown will start and your kids can enjoy playing their favourite fun educational apps. If your children need to “pause” the game, then the timer will pause.
At the end of the set time, a pop up screen will let your kids know that playtime is over. They will not have access to apps anymore. In order to remove the restriction, you as parent will have to enter your password. Be aware, when I first tried Time Limit for Parents, I was over the moon but my kids were no so thrilled! They could not argue or request few more minutes. No argument, the agreed time was up and they had to wait till next time!!!
Time Limit for Parents is ideal for any parent or carers that want to control the amount of play for their children.
It so easy to use. Try it out. Download now from iTunes
Just one more tip. If you entered a password and can't remember, you will need to delete and reinstall the app (by syncing) to reset the password.

Remember, many kids will see the iPod Touch or iPad as a gaming device, but with our help they can get much more out of it. Help them use it for more things than just games and music and download Fun Educational Apps for them.
