Filters & Limits

Try to wait as long as you can, to let your child use a smartphone. Set it up from the very beginning with parental control filters, and apply the “loan rather than own” principle, so that you can manage and control it. A cell phone contract is an excellent way to agree the rules of use and consequences of misuse. Keep in touch and keep checking!


Make a Family Digital Alliance and agree how, when and where screens are used.


Use screen time apps and/or WiFi routers to help guide and develop your family’s good digital habits. ScreenTime (iOs) and Family Link (Android) are a good start, but installing parental control filters on both devices and WiFi are best.
