5 tips for using the Gametimer:
Your child usually goes to bed at 9:00 pm,
but he/she is watching a movie that ends at 9:10 pm.
How do you deal with that?
By giving them a little “leeway”, the Gametimer will be accepted quickly. Your child is responsible for his/her screen time within the limits set. This takes some getting used to for everyone, but children learn quickly.
Talk to your child and agree with him/her on the daily screen time that will be allowed. If your child is encouraged to think about daily screen time, you will get support from him/her. Make a new agreement if, for example, there are changes to the school schedule.
Children know when playtime has passed. After this, the child has the opportunity to close or end the game properly.
Gametimer’s goal is awareness. Children learn that Pause and Stop are part of gaming and screen use. Do not pay too much attention if the Gametimer is not used if you are not around. You can see the playing times of the last 7 days in the statistics.
Making agreements about gaming and screen time is not easy. This is mainly because children do not have set times. If you set up a good programme in the Gametimer, your child will be able to easily plan his/her daily screen time.
