Hi! My name is Teriann Novakowski and I am the creator of ParentKit. I am a stay-at-home mother of three living in Alberta, Canada. I have a Bachelors Degree in Education and have always loved working with children.
I consider my family to be similar to most. We have, use and love our Apple products - but sometimes a little too much. About three years ago I realized that the lack of parental controls available to parents was limited. It was exhausting trying to monitor, track, and limit what my children did on their devices. I felt frustrated by an all-or-nothing system. I started brainstorming a bunch of ideas on what I'd like to be able to control and monitor when it came to my children's device usage. After sourcing out a local app development company who felt the same way as I did, I met and pitched my ideas. We soon realized that my 'want list' and Apple's restriction list for developers clashed - a lot. It was a long road and so very much was learned along the way. In the end, ParentKit was born.
We think it is a fantastic product and a wonderful aid to parents.
This app is great! I can control so many aspects of my children’s devices. It’s terrific.
When they are studying I can turn off their apps until they are done. I especially love that I can control their phones from anywhere. The price seems high but it’s totally worth it. I don’t have to take all their iPads and iPhones away at night anymore. I just set the schedule and it runs automatically. I love it. My kids don’t.
Also I had a question about scheduling and emailed them and I was amazed at how fast they replied. Fantastic support.
I’ve been using it for a while now and I’m really impressed with it. It’s a great tool to moderate my kids iPad use. I’ve even been using it as a reward for getting my kids to finish their homework. I lock it off until their homework is done then bam, with a swipe of my finger; they get to use it again. I love it and it’s totally worth the cost.
Just thought I would touch base again to say I am just LOVING this app! It really gives me everything I wanted! I work away from home for 2 weeks at a time and I love how I can control the use from here...fantastic!
Also it is wonderful to not have to wrestle the iPads off the kids in order to limit them. I truly am loving this app!! Well done!!!
I feel that all children can use a little help with time management and it is our job as parents to guide them. And sometimes, that is difficult. The schedules and restrictions that Parent Kit allows just makes that all easier, giving parents a little more peace of firstname.lastname@example.org
