Kid-Friendly Internet with KidsWifi #Giveaway
Creating a Kid-friendly space to use the internet is something most parents are after. The web is a great place full of knowledge, creativity, and new ideas. It can also be a dark place filled with vulgar language, images, and videos. The worst part is that it’s so easy to quickly jump from something benign to something your kids can’t unsee. All it takes is a search for one thing, a click, and suddenly, kid-friendly internet becomes a scary space filling our children’s minds with images and questions that we weren’t prepared to answer just yet.
Keeping the Internet Kid-Friendly
Of course, safety comes in the form of filtering out unwanted content for the kids, but it also takes on another form. Protecting the kids by setting limits and creating balance. Right now, my tween daughter is online waaaayyyy too much. That is worrisome. It’s like her iPod is hardwired into her brain sometimes. In my opinion, being connected to the internet so much sometimes keeps her from connecting to the world around her, so I have to protect her from herself, as well as what’s lurking out there.
[tweetthis]Enter now to win Kids WIFI gadget, KIWI. Keep them safe when searching the Internet. #KIWIKIDS #Giveaway[/tweetthis]
I’ve recently been using a device called KidsWifi which helps me to keep my children’s internet experience safe and controlled, and I love it. With this device, I filter out unwanted content and control when and how much internet access my children have. It’s made the internet much less of a headache for me, and my kids have been pretty good about it. So it’s a win all the way around!
Kid-Friendly Internet with KidsWifi
KidsWifi is an easy to use, easy to set up plug-and-play solution for kid-friendly internet usage. It blocks adult content, gambling, illegal downloads, shifty websites, identity trackers, and more. Basically, it blocks any and everything I don’t want my kids seeing and/or doing. In addition, the parental dashboard allows me to set bedtimes, remotely pause internet access, and view recent websites.
My girls are 12 and 15. It’s harder and harder to say put the iPod away it’s 9:30, or put the iPod down we are eating dinner and No Electronics at the table. Words, and verbal warnings are sometimes not enough to generate a response from a distracted tween. Frankly my biggest challenge here with the younger one is Netflix. She loves a few shows on Netflix and gets so into watching them on her devices that she literally can’t stop watching. Now, I can help her to stop with KIWI.
I’m in control of my children’s internet, and these days, that’s a good thing!
ALSO: KIWI KidsWIFI gadget has two different levels of filters so you can program it to be safe for younger children, or children who are a bit older, as mine are. My own business wifi is sluggish and can be stressed when the kid’s friends are over and we are all using the same wifi connection, so KIWI KIDSWIFI solves that issue too. You can add several devices at a time. My youngest and her friends are using it right now exclusively when they browse in our home. This is a Canadian company built in Waterloo, my old stomping ground, so that makes me happy.
I’m glad to say that my daughter’s internet usage has been curbed a bit, with minimal wailing and gnashing of teeth. In fact, she’s been interacting with the entire family a lot more. I also feel good knowing that my younger daughter is protected from accidentally surfing into some of the murkier waters of the internet.
ENTER NOW TO WIN Kid-Friendly INTERNET:

Miss R’s WiFi time is turned off at night, but I do have trouble sometimes during the day and would like to be able to turn it off when she’s not listening when told to turn it off.
Hehehe….this will do the trick then.
Sounds promising especially when I read your post today about it working for the “grown up” one in the video. I’d also like to be able to block sites faster. Finding google can be a minefield especially when using images.
This would be perfect for the grandkids when they come to visit as they are not use to device restrictions.
I would love to win this for my little cousins.
Verbal warnings are not enough for my two young sons either and we are trying to promote screen free mealtimes & set tablet time limits.
I would love to win this for my daughters to help with time frames and when to get off.
This would be great for my niece/nephew since internet usage seems to be a big issues in their house right now, this would maybe help cut down on it some.
Eventually my little one will be on the internet. There are things he doesn’t need to see.
Very true. Good luck!
With 2 girls aged 7 & 10, this would be perfect to keep them safe on the internet.

This would fix a whole lot of issues with the wifi here lol. What a great idea and something very useful for not only myself and my child , but nieces and nephews as well. Something like this would make it simple enough for me to not have to be up till 4 am trying to get my work down since computer is free
like to try this with my children
Would like this to help my nieces/nephews control their internet time a bit better.
I love the blocking feature because Miss R’s spelling isn’t always the best and this would reduce the chances of her ending up somewhere questionable.
I would love to win to keep my daughter safer on the net. She is 10 1/2… and finding herself wanting to comment on things like Youtube, wanting to download this n that…. oi
So glad you enjoyed the device, Paula! It was great to see your daughter discussing the device in the video as well. Good luck to everyone who entered. We’re excited to have you in the KidsWifi family!

My grandchildren love to be on their devices and a few times when I have been looking after them they have gone on You Tube to look at Play-Doh videos or opening Kinder Eggs and before long it has gone on to videos that are using bad language for young children. They need something like this to prevent that from happening.
