Customizable Screen Time Rules

As most parents know, the same rules don’t always work for different kids. That’s why we really lean into the amount of customization you can do with our screen time rules. Adjust what your child can use and when based on their schedule, maturity, and needs.

Digital Downtime to Help Kids Be Kids

These days, it’s more important than ever for kids to have time to disconnect from their devices and spend some time connecting with friends, picking up a new hobby, or just (gasp) being bored.

Bark helps you set screen time rules that will help you care for your child’s overall well-being. Who knows? They might just end up discovering a new passion thanks to couple of hours a week set aside for screen-free activities.
