Parental Controls for Children Ages 6-10: Electronics Shouldn't Be the Sole Form of Entertainment

If you think teenagers are the only ones with simultaneous connections to TV, the Internet, and video games, think again. According to the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, 43 percent of 4-6 year olds have a TV in their bedroom, almost half of children under 6 have used a computer, and about a third have played video games. Even if children age 6-10 are limited to G-rated content, the sheer time spent with various media can result in the same negative consequences as being exposed to violence and other inappropriate content.

Ages 6-10Children in the 6-10 age group are still greatly influenced by their parents, so initiating parental controls in this age group is advantageous to long-term mental and physical development. But instead of chasing around several different parental controls for each gadget, try the Mikko Que for:

Most importantly, children ages 6-10 should not be encouraged to let screen time be their only form of entertainment, or worse yet, escape. To develop properly, this age group needs parental controls on media. This encourages them to devote more time and energy to discovering their talents, exercising, and to building solid relationships with parents, siblings, family, and friends.

Here is a brief description of how the Mikko Que parental controls work:

  • Plug the TV, Internet signal, and video game signals (Xbox, Wii, Playstation, etc.) into the Mikko Que.
  • Use the Mikko setup software on your PC or laptop—or any borrowed computer — to create individual Internet, television, and video game parental controls for each child. These schedules can be customized for both total time per day allowed on each device, as well as the time of day allowed on each device. The Mikko Que can even manage split schedules throughout the day such as TV, Internet, and/or television use from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
  • Use any USB drive to burn a Mikko TimeKey for each family member
  • Show your children how to insert the TimeKey into the Mikko Que and follow the instructions on the Que's LCD display to use the allotted screen time
  • Once time is up, the TV, Internet, or video game signal is interrupted and the screen goes dark
