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.

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!

We empower and motivate kids and families. Kids can complete tasks to unlock screen time automatically or earn points to save for bonus screen time or non-screen rewards. Kids also collect special characters called Habytars when they complete Tasks. Even parents can monitor their own time and share progress on the Family Scoreboard.

Study time is excellent and great to know you can block sites and only use a specific time to study for your kids…It has all I need plus more [and] what they need for security.
