Purpose of PlayLimit:
PlayLimit allows parents a simple and convenient
way of limiting the time their
children spend in front of a TV. Many studies have shown
that too much TV is bad for
children. Even educational video games and programs, if
not restricted, can reduce
children’s ability to think and learn for themselves.
How can PlayLimit help?
Simple. By giving kids tokens for a specific time period,
set a definite limit on how much TV their kids can watch.
What’s more, the tokens
empower kids to manage their own time, so parents no longer
have to be the “time’s
children understand their TV limits, parents can encourage
other activities such
as reading, drawing, and sports to fill the void. And
that’s the ultimate purpose of
PlayLimit — to be a positive experience for both
parents and children.
