Setting Up your Streaming Service Parental Controls

How to protect your children from harmful content, through adjusting the settings on your favorite Streaming Service

streaming service parental controlsOne of the most overlooked advantages of cutting the cord is the additional control you achieve the content that your children are allowed to watch. With Cable, you are bombarded by toxic commercials and programming aimed to brainwash you and your children into buying more things, acting a certain way, and viewing the world from a consumeristic perspective.

Let’s take control over what we allow our children to watch. And if we can save money in the process.. even better.

I know this first hand. I have a young son and daughter and am constantly infuriated by the media’s lack of moral commitment to empowering our youth with good messages. Instead, they only care about making a buck, at any cost, and to the detriment of our youth’s ideas and self-worth.

Children Programing

No one wants to stick their kid in front of the television all day, but sometimes parents just need a break – and there is no easier way to get that break than letting your child tune out to their favorite show. The trick is to make sure that what they are watching provides educational value.

This becomes tough with standard cable or satellite because people often find themselves simply flipping through channels until they find something that will keep their child entertained. However, keeping your kid entertained should never be your sole priority. You need to find programs that actually promote the ideals, attitudes, and behaviors that you feel would benefit your child’s growth.
