Typical scenarios you may be facing…
In the News
“What I did early on is I downloaded an app called WiFi Blocker,” she said.
“My son will absolutely hate the fact that I’m telling everybody this but it was the best £5 I ever invested.”
Lauren, Reason we made the app
Time: 1.30am, School night. Dad finds Lauren(age 13) in bed with her iPad.
Dad “LAUREN IT’s 1.30 AM!”.
Lauren and Dad proceed in actual tug of war for iPad.
Lauren’s internet gets blocked at 8pm automatically, Lauren realises her iPad is pretty useless without internet, and is asleep by 9pm most nights. Occasionally get “STUART. WiFi” reminders to switch back on her WiFi, or with router scheduling her internet is automatically available from 7am.
Dad still enjoys toggling her WiFi from scheduled to blocked to here her shout downstairs if we’ve not heard from here in a while or its dinner time.
Dean, aged 9, Sometimes not needed
Dean’s a good boy and hands in his devices at set times,
doesn’t stay up late or sneak his devices to bed.
Murray, aged 5
Time: Murray’s bath time, Murray watching Thomas on Netflix.
Dad: “Murray bath time”.. Murray “No” .. Repeated 5x.
Dad gets frustrated and turns off the Nintendo. Murray gets frustrated by Daddy,
bath time is an unpleasant atmosphere.
Time: Murray’s bath time,
Murray watching Thomas on Netflix.
Dad “Murray bath time”.. Murray “No” .. Repeated 2x.
Dad loads WiFi Blocker on his Phone, blocks the Nintendo,
1 minute later buffered video runs out, Daddy “Murray bath time”.
Murray happy switches off Nintendo, Skips to bathroom. Win Win.

their kids who were hooked to Mine Craft.

Taking away their devices entirely.
Now found cycling, playing in the garden and along the beach.
