You are a good parent, but let's be honest, it's not always easy to get your device back from your kid once they have it. That's why we invented KidStar.
Kids get so engrossed on iDevices that they get irritated when you try to get it back at the end of play time. With KidStar, you no longer need to get in the middle, because KidStar gently interrupts kids during their iDevice play to let them know that they have a few minutes left to play before KidStar will lock them out of the device apps. KidStar then gives them stars rewards for returning the device back to you either early or at the end of your specified play time.
KidStar is based the principles of positive behavioral psychology which show that when kids are treated with respect and rewarded for acting responsibly it can powerful effects on their self-control and self-esteem. Rewards are a great way to blunt the impact of bringing in time limits to play.
