Effortlessly Set Mobile Boundaries for Kids with FamilyBase by Verizon is sponsored by Verizon Wireless. All opinions are 100% my own.
In this mobile connected world keeping tabs on our kids is becoming more and more of a challenge. I have two teenagers and a tween. They are texting friends, playing apps, googling what is going on in the world. My kids even take online classes for school. Keeping an eye on them is hard enough, and that is why I am sharing with you how to set mobile boundaries for kids with FamilyBase by Verizon effortlessly!
This has been a huge challenge in our home. My kids’ devices are so convenient, and they were on them all of the time until I set up FamilyBase. I had no idea what was going on. Were they doing homework or playing Minecraft? Were they sleeping or surfing the internet? Of course, I had rules and kept an eye on my kids, but I wanted to ensure I knew what was going on.
Kids test boundaries, and FamilyBase helps you as a parent keep up with what your kids are doing.
- Do you feel like your child is on their phone too much?
- Have you ever wondered who your child is texting?
- Do you want them to get off that app and finish their homework?
- Do you want to keep them off of dark corners of the internet?
FamilyBase covers all of these things and more!
