Internet Block Alternatives from Mikko: Teach Your Children to Manage Their Screen Time with the Mikko Que

Parents across the country are extremely concerned about the time their children spend surfing the Internet. While the Internet is an excellent tool for learning and research, it also has the ability to pull children away from family time, dinner, sports, homework, reading, sleep, and everything else that makes up a well-rounded life. This has led many parents to search for an easy Internet block device that will pull their children away from the computer screen and point them toward other important activities.

Internet BlockAt Mikko, we are parents, too. We noticed early on in our children's lives that we needed an Internet block, and this need inspired us to invent a revolutionary device. The Mikko Que not only provides parental Internet control, but also helps parents regulate time spent on TV and video games, too. Here's how the Mikko Que works as an Internet block, television block, and video game block:

  • Connect the cables for Internet, television signal, and video games into the Mikko Que.
  • Use your PC or laptop (or a computer at work or a friend's house ) along with the Mikko setup software to enter each child's name, a time schedule range (for example, 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.), and the amount of time he or she is allowed per day surfing the Internet, watching TV, and playing video games.
  • Burn these time limits onto a USB thumb drive for each child, which creates a TimeKey that children can plug into the Mikko Que to use their allotted time.
  • Once the child's time is up, three warnings will sound (at 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 1 minute, and 30 seconds) and then the Internet block, TV block, or video game block is activated for the rest of that scheduled time period.
  • To give you and your children even more flexibility, you can actually program several time ranges split throughout the day (for example 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.) in which children are allowed to use their Internet, TV, and/or video game time.

Even better than a simple Internet block, the Mikko Que is a simple, straightforward Internet control device that gives children solid boundaries with their screen time. Within these boundaries, children have the power to use their time whenever they choose. Furthermore, instead of electronic media taking up too much of their lives, kids are able to focus more time on other interests while parents are able to promote the healthy balance of family, fun, school, and exercise that are so vital to mental and physical development.

Instead of resorting to daily confrontations with your child about his or her Internet use, the Mikko Que encourages structure and tranquility in the household. To discover more about how the Mikko Internet block can bring more peace in your home, contact us today.
