Why is Habyts the most practical family solution?
Habyts is a breakthrough app that makes family life easier by automating screen time management… while motivating kids to do homework, finish chores and build good habits.
To give parents a hand, Habyts delivers a practical full-featured solution that works behind the scenes to simplify digital family life and support child development. (Compare it to other solutions).
When it comes to curbing excessive screen time, parents face lots of hidden gotchas. Online homework distractions, incognito browsing, and device-hopping are just a few of the common pitfalls! (See more here).
Habyts handles the gotchas and more – freeing parents from the cycle of nagging, threats and telling kids off. Simply put, Habyts gives you MORE than powerful screen time parental controls... it builds essential habits for life!
Habyts is the perfect solution... I love how it teaches my child to manage time and use educational websites and still have time for fun.
