No worries! Just set Study Time on Habyts - so kids are limited to educational sites & apps during homework.

Concerned that your child’s homework is losing out to YouTube?

Not sure whether your kids are secretly surfing, texting, or gaming when they should be studying?  (And hate having to fight to find out).

With Habyts, it’s easy to block distracting websites and apps on all of your child’s devices while they’re studying.

During Study Time, Habyts only allows apps and websites that are useful for studying.  So Wikipedia and Microsoft Word are OK, but Minecraft isn't.

Study time applies to your child’s PC, phone and tablet all at the same time...and Study Time doesn’t count against your child’s screen time allowed for play (we call it a Play Time Allowance).

Worried about screen time affecting your child’s education?

It's one of the top concerns we hear from parents.

Research from the University of Cambridge shows a direct link between the amount of time a child spends on screens and poor academic performance.

It’s really not a big surprise.

If a child isn’t concentrating on their homework, they’re not learning it thoroughly, and exam grades will suffer.

If your child is doing homework and YouTube is a mere click away, it’s inevitable their attention will wander.

When even a small amount of homework is carried out or researched online...

it’s hard to tell the difference between a genuine request for time to research the Nile delta...

and a little white lie to get more game time!

So we've made it easy for you to block distracting websites and apps on all your child’s devices while they’re studying.

You no longer have to police their homework – just let them get on with it.

Simply block Play Time until Homework is done!

Check it when they’ve finished, Approve the Homework Task on your phone, and Habyts will unlock Play Time automatically.

With Habyts Study Time, you can help your child break the digital distraction habit, focus attention on learning, and get on the path to academic success!

How Study Time Works...

Set Study Time to be available either All Day, or only for a set period when you start the clock.

We’ve set up a default list of websites and apps that are blocked in Study Time.

 

You can edit the list of blocked websites and apps either by category or by individual site.

Habyts takes the hassle out of managing your child’s screen time, chores and homework

Hassle-Free

I don't want their heads stuck in their devices all of the time and go to sites they should not...[I like] that the kids have the device access turned off without hassle…Because it gives the kids incentive to do what they are supposed to.

Easy To Set Up And Track

Habyts is easy to set up and track. I like that you can add your own tasks & rewards. I can also track his progress in case he forgets to complete a task. I added brush teeth, make bed, leave on time. It was easy to add rewards…game time w/dad (5pts), movie (10pts), and dinner out his choice (30pts).

Really Like the Points & Reward System

My daughter seems to be on her tablet 24/7 and so do I! We're both really savvy with technology! I really, really like the points and reward system. It worked really well for us! That's the only way my daughter uses her tablet.

Helps Keep The Fussing And Fighting Down

[The study time feature] is very easy to use and understand…It makes the app stand out from others…really enjoyed using Habyts. It helps keep the fussing and fighting down with my daughter.

Disable Usage Right Away

My son will just play any game he likes until the battery dies on the tablet and then move on to computer...Habyts is so easy to use and can be handy with a child who will not put down a device when asked.

Allows My Children To Be Independent

My son has ADHD so he can be distracted very easy...[Habyts] was easy to use and I like how the children can't play their tablets without the task being done. I also [like] how they can see what task needs to be done. This makes it to where they can be more dependent.

Study Time Increased And Social Media Decreased

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. Study Time increased and social media decreased...I loved it!

Study Time

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.

Turn Off The Internet

My two kids are constant users of Android phones, and tablets...I chose for my kids about 35 min for study time. If they get all the work done in this time they are done....I like the ability to simply turn off the internet from the kids.

Motivating

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.

Nicole D

The Perfect Solution

Habyts is the perfect solution...I love how it teaches my child how to manage time and use educational websites and still have time for fun. [For Rewards], I added do some baking together, read with me, have an ice cream, play my favorite board game…all valued at 5 Points.
