THE GAME TIME MANAGEMENT TOOL FOR KIDS

“You have to help them plan!”

Offer children a tool for making arrangements.

Children are spending more and more time indoors, in front of a screen. Not only because of games, YouTube and TV, but because an increasing amount of homework has to be made via the computer. The screen has become part of our daily life, also that of children.

There are families that have no trouble making proper arrangements about screen time, but in 80% of families it turns out to be increasingly difficult. A large group of parents is generally concerned about the consequences for children and is noticing an increase of screen time with disappointment.

Games such as Fortnite and watching YouTube videos claim a lot of time and how should arrangements be made about this? Gametimer offers help. To prevent our children from always sitting at their screens, it is important to keep a close eye on this time. Gametimer helps children make arrangements and plan time properly, so gaming doesn’t get the upper hand.

“Making arrangements with Sam was becoming increasingly difficult.
With Gametimer I have an accepted aid that offers clarity as well as peace and quiet.”

Why it’s important to set screen time limits.

Use and necessity of making arrangements

Some children can spend a lot of time playing computer games and watching (YouTube) videos online. While having access to technology and screen media can be beneficial, too much screen time can lead to issues such as screen addiction or eye problems.

These are reasons for consciously dealing with screen time per day. This often comes down to limiting screen time. After all, children have trouble setting limits themselves, because they haven’t developed this ability yet. It’s up to the parents to make arrangements with them about use of the phone, game console or desktop computer.

How Gametimer works

Your children are very keen when it comes to gaming. You probably don’t have to urge them to play games. Stopping on the other hand…

Yet it is still important before they begin (green at the top) to know when enough is enough for the day. With Gametimer you set agreed playing time in advance in a weekly overview.

Start

  • Day time: The maximum time when gaming is allowed on a specific day.
  • Game time: The maximum time when consecutive gaming is allowed.
  • Pause: The maximum time when consecutive gaming is allowed.

Apart from this, the children decide how they divide the day themselves. You create clarity and prevent arguments when it’s time to stop. This enables children to divide their time wisely in a playful way and teaches them that there is more to life than just gaming. With Gametimer you keep them in balance.

Pause

By placing Gametimer horizontally, the game time goes to “Break”. This enables continuing later on, without wasting day time. The break offers children the possibility of literally taking a break. To stop gaming and, for instance, play outside with friends, make homework or go to the table for a meal. When Gametimer is then put back on “Play” the time will continue

Game Over

All things must pass. This also applies to today’s game time. When the game time has run out, Gametimer will sound a noise until it is stopped (red up). It’s now no longer possible to put Gametimer on play without this making a noise.

Gametimer is reset at night and the next day the set game times will be available again. If you want to give your children some extra (or less) time on certain days, you can adjust this according to your wishes via the Gametimer setup screen. This enables you to provide some extra “game” fun during the holidays.
