On a daily basis, many children and teenagers may spend hours looking at screens. This might be a good way to keep kids occupied, but unregulated screen time is said to have detrimental effects on your child’s cognitive and social development, sleep, and overall health.

Thankfully, there are parental control apps out there designed to let you supervise your children’s device usage with ease. Qustodio is a leading example, also allowing you to block inappropriate content, control the apps and games your children launch and monitor communications.
