Parenting has only gotten tougher as technology has advanced. With the rise of smartphones, the volume of inappropriate content kids can access is staggering, and it's all too easy for young minds to fall prey to the psychological hooks of modern entertainment and end up spending hours glued to their mobile screens.
While denying your kid a smartphone is always an option, it's not a practical one in this day and age. The modern world expects children and adults alike to be always connected, and to ignore that is to place your offspring at a significant disadvantage.
This is where Family Zone comes in. This Australian company provides a suite of parental control and monitoring tools for use across a variety of modern devices, allowing parents to limit what content their kids can access and how much time they spend interfacing with the digital world
To show off these tools, Family Zone sells its own budget-priced smartphone called the Alcatel FZ One. With a 13MP camera, a fingerprint sensor and facial recognition, the FZ One combines the core features of a modern smartphone with a 12-month Family Zone subscription, providing parents with peace of mind while ensuring their kids have the tools to succeed in our digital world.
