How to monitor your family’s interent use at the source

This post is sponsored by Best Buy
I’ve got three tweens in my hose these days, and one who thinks she’s a tween. They are obsessed with texting friends and checking Musically and watching youtube. All of the kids have older iphones available to play on when they earn screen time.  In addition to this, we’ve also got three ipads in the home, and Jafta has a chromebook he uses for school.
I’m not totally against kids and online devices. love the educational apps that are available on the ipad and iphone platform. My school-aged kids attend a technology-enthused school and with the help of apps like Spelling City and Lexia, they can even do some of their homework assignments on the ipads. I also love that they are learning to be computer literate.
At the same time, devices without a filter can pose serious risks for kids. I’ve been witness to therapy clients, friends, and even family members discover, much to their horror, that their kids had been looking at inappropriate content online.  And guys? OF COURSE THEY ARE.  Kids searching for taboo content is not about “what kind of kids they are” but more about natural curiosity and access to the internet. It’s naive to assume that our special kids will never do something like that. We wouldn’t leave a playboy next to the toilet in the bathroom and tell our kids not to look at it when they go to the bathroom. Nor should we hand our kids a smartphone that hasn’t been secured.
Previously, we monitored each device individually. This meant that on some devices, we were using a browser filter, and on others, using the filters on iOS. It was hard to keep track of and meant that we had to configure each device separately.
Recently, we had a chance to try Cujo in our home. Cujo is a smart firewall for the home, designed to bring business-level security to the family network. This one device will secure all devices connecting to the WiFi router. Cujo detects and blocks malicious sites, viruses, and hacks . . . kind of like an antivirus babysitter for your entire network.
This has been a game changer for us. First of all, it is so simple. You plug it in, you set it up to your wifi, and it takes over from there. There is an easy to use app that allows you to control and monitor all of the devices on your home wifi. You can receive instant threat notifications and it allows you to control internet access for select devices (so you can shut off the internet for the kids, but keep it on for yourself.) You can customize Cujo to allow certain sites to be blocked, or even designate certain words to cause a block. In addition, you can manually override any blocks automated by Cujo so you’re in full control all the time.

The thing I like most about Circle, though, is that it can act as a time enforcer. You can set up user profiles so that each child is allowed online only for a certain amount of time. As a parent, you can use the app to see exactly what everyone in the house is doing. You can see what sites they’ve visited, how much time they’ve been online, and where they are spending most of their time online.
I have been sincerely impressed with the Cujo filtering system. I think it’s a perfect solution for families because it addresses all of your devices at once, and it addresses both malware and browsing. And I love that I can monitor the whole thing from my phone, and even pause the internet altogether in my home.
If you have kids and don’t yet have a filter on your router, I definitely recommend Cujo!

Odds and Ends

1. I tell my kids this all the time, hurt people hurt people. Adults, I’m here to remind you as well…if someone is going out of their way to hurt you, chances are *they* are hurting more than you could ever imagine.

2. I’ve enjoyed much of Louis CK’s comedy, so this is disheartening.

3. Looking into the future for a child with autism. I loved this article.

4. Is Ivanka Trump truly invested in the working women of this country?

5. OMG, these GIFs explain so many things.

6. Oklahoma City is so cool. Even Food & Wine says so. (All of the mentions are also in my OKC Travel Guide!)

7. Le Creuset launched their cookware in my very favorite color EVAH.

8. An all-girl remake of The Lord of the Flies. Laughed and laughed.

9. Sullen teen on your hands? Talk to them about reframing their thoughts.

11. The spaceship responsible for some of the most wonderful images in space is about to die.

12. Have you seen the videos of the former Mexican president trolling Trump?

13. Okay, this article on the disgustingness of kitchen sponges almost threw me over the edge.

14. Fall is upon us, and I can’t wait to break out these boots that I wore all over Europe earlier this year. Perfection, and yes, worth the price tag.

15. Please read the comments on this photo of some very cute police officers. “…as if Florida wasn’t already wet enough” hahahaa

16. This dude told his wife “to get whatever she wanted at Sephora.” Um, big mistake, sir. HUGE.

17. This is hands-down the best Ask Amy response I’ve ever read.

18. I like this skincare approach when transitioning from summer into the cooler months.

19. You guys. This woman has absolutely no psychological control over this. I hope she can find the help she so desperately needs.
