Meet Circle With Disney
This post is in collaboration with Circle, as always all opinions are my own.
I'm so excited to be sharing with you guys all about this fantastic product that is helping me manage my families online usage. Let's face it the way our children spend their time these days are nothing like the good old days when we used our imaginations to have fun. As a parent, I always try to make sure my children spend more time using their minds and creativity and less time watching other children play with toys on YouTube. I don't ever think I will understand why children enjoy this, but they do. With all this said if you are like my family you know that prying an iPad away from a child is not fun, but lucky for me Circle is helping me change this around. Get ready to learn how to manage every device on your existing home network with a straightforward tool. With Circle, you can filter content, put time limits on screens, set a Bed Time for your children and even yourself.
Bed Time is such a great feature, especially in my household. Annabelle loves to fight me when its bath time and she is watching daddies iPad. Now that we have Circle she knows that once the device shuts off its time for bed. This method seems to work because it's not mommy or daddy taking it away. She hands me the iPad now and says bath time, big win for mommy. Getting to bed on time has never been easier and helps everyone be productive the next day. You can also create Off Times for those moments you need to unplug during the weekend. I know there are moments I need to disconnect so this helps me not to create excuses to stay on the internet.
Need everyone's undivided attention, pause the Internet with the tap of a finger. Seriously it's like magic, watch your family run into the room you are in when you press that button confused on what just happened. I think I am having a little too much fun with this power, but seriously it works.
So how does Circle work? Circle works with your home Wi-Fi and lets you manage every connected device on your home network, both wireless and wired, without ever needing to put software on them. It was so simple that it took me minutes to connect all the devices in my household. All you have to do is download the App from the app store, and it walks you right through.
Another excellent feature is rewards; this allows you to add time to your child's device so they can spend more time on their favorite gadgets. You can filter each device to take away apps you don't want your child to have access to. My favorite feature with our Circle Device is that Circle provides families with Disney entertainment that parents trust and children love. "You will have access to Disney videos, blogs, GIFs, memes, emojis, music, games, characters and lots more, all through MyCircle." You guys know how much this family loves Disney so this is such a great device for us. The MyCircle app gives each member of your family a personalized Circle dashboard. I love that its individualized to each person in my family. It's helpful for me as a mom to have reminders about bedtimes and time limits. I may not be able to change the fact that technology is a part of the way my kids are growing up but Circle is helping me limit my kids to it and filter what I think is appropriate for them.
Circle is a great gift to give to any parent, and with the Holidays just around the corner, you can purchase for only $49.99 today Cyber Monday at MeetCircle.com. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and happy shopping loves.
