Overview

Easily set “routines” for each child.

Your child’s routine is simply the settings you create for them for Family Zone’s four basic access periods -  Play, School, Study and Sleep.

Your child’s routine will determine WHAT she can access and WHEN it can be accessed. 

Each child will have one routine for school days, and another for “rest” days (weekends, holidays and the like).  That’s what we refer to as their “calendar.”

 

What you have to do

Nothing - unless you want to. Recommended default settings will be automatically set for each day type, depending on your child’s age.

 

You are free to customise these settings however you wish.

 

How to customise settings

Note that each hour is divided into 15-minute segments, and days start and end at midnight.

  • Dragging the access period forward or backward from either end is a quick way to make a change.

  • Click or tap on an individual segment and select a new access period from the drop-down icons.

  • After creating a new access period, simply drag it out to alter the routine.

  • Changes will be automatically applied.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the default Routine settings for my child?

Absolutely. Our default settings have been created by cyber experts based on your child’s age, while sleep-time settings are based on your selection during account creation.

 

If my child is sick or on holidays do I need to change my routine?

No, you can opt for a Quick Time change instead. Alternatively, you can change the routine from within the calendar simply by setting the day to a rest day. 

 

When my child has a birthday, will his routine automatically update?

If you’ve never made any changes to his routine or calendar, then it will be updated automatically. If you have, then your changes will remain.
