I love when apps help solve parenting problems. I suspect many parents are like me and find it challenging to manage their children’s allowances and screen time. I want my children to develop healthy financial habits and I don’t want to be nagging them all day to get off their tablets, but I find myself not bothering with allowances and currently their screen time is out of control.
So I was thrilled to discover the Kidibank™ app and I agreed to test it out and spread the word to other parents. This post is sponsored, so extra thanks for reading and sharing.
With summer coming, I’m not looking forward to trying to enforce screen time limits with my kids. Since I work at home, I often let them spend far too long on their devices because I don’t have time and energy to negotiate and listen to their complaints.
Well, this summer I’m going to get the Kidibank™ app to help me manage my kids’ screen time. I love that the app doesn’t just have a set screen time limit, but it allows you to add and deduct time.
When your children can take positive actions and reach goals to earn more screen time or allowance, it can boost their self-competence and self-esteem. This app makes it fun and easy to teach children to set attainable goals and then work towards reaching those goals.
And if you let the app be the one informing your child of their screen time limits, you won’t have to spend all your time nagging. You can enjoy more screen-free time together and your children will have more time to play creatively without technology.
I love that there are no ads and no in-app purchases. It’s available in all stores with a FREE month trial that works as a family subscription across all platforms. The yearly family subscription is $12.99 and there are no additional charges for upcoming content & features.
