Case Study - Nicole

“Habyts gives me peace of mind for my children on the internet.”

“Habyts gives me peace of mind for my children on the internet.”

Nicole was one of our early Habyts Testers. Here is how Habyts helped give her peace of mind when it came to her kids online activity.

Life Before Habyts

We had family time 3 days a week with no technology for an hour, but I still found it a struggle to get my kids to do their chores and put their devices down. If I could wave a magic wand, there would always be family time and no digital electronics, but I know this isn’t realistic!

Life After Using Habyts

I like knowing what my kids are doing on the computer without checking on them very often. I can monitor how long they do certain things on the computer. It gave me peace of mind for my children on the internet. There is nothing that I can say that I dislike about [Habyts]. I loved it!

How We Did It

Schedule Set Up

Nicole set up her kids Habyts schedules so they had less time playing games and social media and more study time. To do this she made the Play Time limit only an hour.

Once you set up Play Time, your kids can then use this any time during the schedule you’ve set, providing they have completed any tasks and Study Time isn’t in session!

Why did you rate schedule set up 5/5?

“Because it was very easy and fast!”

Study Time

Nicole used Study Time to monitor how much time her kids spent doing their homework verses being on social media.

In the Study Time tab, you can decide which websites you want to block during specific study time – like social media. This helps kids focus on completing their homework, and helps them get it done faster too!

Then, using the reports tab, Nicole could see that her kids were doing more study time and the amount of time on social media decreased.


For completing their homework and tasks, Nicole used the Habyts Rewards feature. They got points for doing chores, getting good grades and behaviour.

To set up a reward, go to the Rewards tab and then follow these 3 simple steps.

  1. Choose a reward or write your own.
  2. Set how many points need to be earned to get this reward.
  3. Save!

When kids have earned enough points, you can decide which reward to give them. The points will then be subtracted from their Habyts piggy bank.

Why did you rate Rewards 5/5?

“My kids were more interested in competing with each other with the rewards feature. It was great having them doing something together and having fun. It has been great seeing them do a lot to earn rewards. Seeing them work together was motivating.”


Your family is free of screen time battles, homework hassles, and chore wars. Distracted children are motivated. Daily routines are established. Family life is fun again. Now... open your eyes... watch the video and see what we believe in...
