Have you ever been to a restaurant to see a whole family on their electronic devices instead of talking and enjoying each other’s company? We live in an age where everyone is so sucked into their devices that people have forgotten how to interact with each other. The innovation and continuous advancement of technology has impacted our world more than we will ever care to admit. For better or for worse, it’s here to stay. Luckily, there is a way to use technology in a constructive way to promote creativity and passion. Eturi Corp has created an app called OurPact that makes achieving this goal easier than ever.
OurPact (available on iOS and android) was developed to help parents establish a routine to teach kids responsible technology use (available on iOS and android). It is currently the #1 parent control app & family locator on the market. Features of the app include the ability to block apps, the internet, and texting, family locator, schedules, app rules, allowance, web filter, and places. OurPact has three different price points:
It’s pertinent that not only we limit children’s technology use, but we should be leading by example. If we’re telling our children they can’t have their phone during meal times, we shouldn’t be on our electronic devices either. Reinforcing the new routine will eventually just become a part of their norm. Let us know in the comments below how the app has worked for you and your family! Stay tuned next week for a blog post about the book, The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child’s Developing Mind!

As 2017 comes to a close and we start a new chapter with a brand new year we would like to thank everyone who has helped us to finish our second year of business. We are so thankful for all of our staff and the families we work with! We are beyond blessed for all of the relationships we have developed and the lives we have been able to be apart of. This company was started to help families in all different situations to have a second family to rely on to help their children with homework, create memories, learn more, do more, and grow throughout the different moments in their lives. Team ELM loves each family like their own. We hope that year number three brings new families to our happy family and we hope to bring new value to your families lives through charity, support, and laughter.
Now we don't only tutor, we don't only provide childcare, we help you with parties, we chaperone at your special events, we help to contribute to causes that matter to you, and more. We are looking to be "the ones who are helping" when you look out into the world. Please let us know how to make a difference in your life this new year!
