What healthcare experts are talking about
the screen time problem:
One of the biggest fights in my own home is over how much time my kids spend on their devices. Here are ways to avoid the hazards of spending so much time staring at screens. Monitor your monitor. Your monitor should be at least 24-28 inches from your eyes, with the center about four to six inches below eye level.
This is all about teaching kids self-control, and what we have learned through the research is that it's absolutely teachable. So, I would really discourage a family from getting a child a device when they don't feel like they are going to be able to control themselves from when they use it. I found the best way to manage my own family's screen use was having boundaries.
Children can't always distinguish what is virtual and what is real. It is parents responsibility to monitor access to games and content that is above a child's age.
SOLUTION CREATED BY A FATHER OF 2 FABULOUS KIDS
FOR ALL YOUR FAMILY'S DEVICES
SETS PROPER DISTANCE
Because of the camera of the device, Blincy recognises the distance of an object in front. In this way Blincy sets the proper distance and if a child gets closer, the screen of the device turns off automatically. When a child gets back - it turns on again.
CONTROLS TIME SPENT
ON ALL SMART DEVICES
Forget about any screen time argues with your kids! With Blincy app make a schedule for any smart device they are addicted to and keep them focused on important things, such as studies, outside activities or a rest, when it's time for that. On a stress-free method based app gives your kid a notification 10 minutes before the screen shuts down automatically. In this way, your child has time to adapt to the fact psychologically, that they will need to finish digital activities soon. Having time to end what they have started not only develops their time management skills but also sets you free from this unpleasant duty to call them back from screens.
Psychologically damaging content on internet will not be reachable so easily for your kids anymore. Blincy provides a possibility to block installation of the applications you don't want your kid to use.
NOTIFIES ABOUT DANGEROUS PLACES AND SHOWS WHERE YOUR KID IS

Blincy app not only allows you to see a daily route they take but also gives a possibility to mark wanted and unwanted locations in the map, it means, you will get notifications to your mobile phone if your kid visits unwanted/dangerous locations, or when they reach home, school, dentist or other waned places.

ABOUT THE CREATOR
Hello parents, partners and like-minded people!
Being a father of two fabulous kids, I created an app Blincy for my personal parenting needs. My kids were spending too much time on gadgets, staying too close to screens, losing creativity and focus on studies… So I was looking for a solution to help myself to raise my kids as healthy adults. Technology, preventing from technologies looked like the best solution. Once I created Blincy app and applied it to all gadgets, I noticed practically, how much effective it is! If it helps me, then why not to help other parents? That’s why I quit my previous 8 to 5 job and established my own company, which is dedicated to help parents worldwide and make a change in the world.
