Here’s a statistic for you: COVID-19 has caused a 500% increase in screen time. That’s nearly half of American children spending more than 6 hours in front of a screen! But sadly, it’s not so surprising, right? With this much screen time, how do you make sure that kids aren’t stumbling upon harmful content? How do we control how much time the kids spend on their devices?
Enter Circle Home Plus.

What is Circle Home Plus?
Circle Home Plus is a device that helps you manage every connected device on your home network.
Super easy to install
I kid you not, I hate installing all the things and procrastinated on setting up the Circle. I don’t know what I was so afraid of. The entire process was super easy. Once I downloaded the app, the step-by-step instructions were easy to follow.
Manage screen time
There are so many options to help manage screen time.(See below.) My favorite screen management settings include setting time limits, setting age-appropriate filters for kids, and pausing the internet (if needed.) Another great feature is that I can restrict certain websites so they can focus on their homework. There are so many other features too including locating a device or checking out the device’s history,
Kids get a good night’s rest
Getting off screens before going to sleep is a must in order to get a better night’s sleep. With this device, I’m able to set a bedtime so screens are turned off a couple hours before bedtime. I honestly may need to set my own internet bedtime too!
A neat feature is that kids can earn rewards for extra screen time. This gives them the motivation to do their chores or go above and beyond their daily responsibilities.
The best outcome of using this device? Balancing time between screens and family time which allows us to have more family time to do fun things like enjoying the great outdoors.
