The Internet is a wide world filled with learning opportunities, especially for homeschool families.
We can go on virtual field trips anytime we desire in our pajamas without leaving our homes.
I believe that access to the Internet is an important reason many families are able to homeschool so effectively.
It’s truly amazing and convenient.
But, there is an enemy out there just waiting to suck our poor little children’s minds into evil as quickly as possible.
I guess it’s like any other thing in life…along with good, there is also bad.
However, we do not have to allow the enemy to win and corrupt our children’s minds.
Many moons ago, when my oldest was around ten, he wanted to become a professional skateboarder. He innocently was trying to look up skateboards that were available online at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Need I say more?
Let’s just say, skateboards did not come up in his little search.
It gave this mama a heart attack.
And, that’s how simple it is for the Internet to corrupt our children.
But, we can NOW be assured that our children are safe online with the technology of Torch. Torch is a WiFi Router with vigorous Internet Filtering that gives you the tools to protect your children from the negatives of the Internet. With using your existing internet service provider, the Torch is very easy to set up, even a non-techy mom like myself can set it up without an issue.
I was able to set up our Torch WiFi Router in a matter of minutes. I quickly created a profile for each child from the simple dashboard. I was able to filter out any websites that I didn’t approve of, such as YouTube and Facebook.
One of my favorite features of the Torch is that it allows me to pause the internet by profile, and set customizable bedtimes as appropriate for each child. I no longer have to tell my sweet children to turn off their devices; it takes care of the situation for me without me having to nag.
My twelve-year-old seriously had a meltdown when his iPad went off at 8:30 pm. He now calls the Torch, “The Monster”.
There’s also no limit to the number of children’s profiles you can create. Torch will work on up to 35 devices without affecting the network. We have a large family, so I appreciate this feature.
Torch is currently working on creating a mobile app, but for the time being their current dashboard can be viewed on any sized screen, on any device, on any network. This makes it simple for me to control my children’s Internet privileges on my phone if I’m not home.
Torch allows me to view where my kids browse online, their estimated screen time, and data usage. It’s a parent’s best friend.
Having Torch in our home has made me feel like I have so much more control over what my children are seeking on the Internet. It’s a life-saver for me. I’m a busy, single, work-at-home mom who needs as much help as I can get while raising my children and doing my best to keep them safe.
Torch would love to give one family their very own Torch Wi-Fi Router which is priced at $249.99 + $9.99 per month for parental control’s service. The giveaway includes 3 years of that subscription. The total value of this giveaway is $609.63. Simply enter the giveaway below. I will be picking a random winner on April 23rd at 11:59 PM. All entries will be verified. Good luck.
