Circle with Disney offers parents a way to manage their children’s screen time, filter content, make sure they aren’t online instead of sleeping at bedtime, and more. The Circle device itself costs $99 and nothing more to set up and use on your home WiFi network. You can actually pause the internet use on a device- no matter where you are, via the Circle app.
You can use Circle with Disney to reward kids for things- a kid who really struggles with reading, perhaps, might sit and read with no fuss for 30 minutes- maybe you allow an extra 30 minutes of game time. Alternately, if you find yourself perhaps needing a consequence or that the kids are simply not doing what you asked and are spending their summer vacation days online and connected, pop open the app and hit that pause button (see below).
Blogger spouses everywhere may also use this feature to get their spouses offline and in line with their families- I know I’m guilty of checking email or socials far too often, either for clients, sponsors, or new campaigns coming in. I know it frustrates my family, and I try to be aware, but you know what? Even parents need a time out reminder sometimes! I should reword the first sentence of this post to say that Circle with Disney offers families a way to manage their family screen time, period.
