Abstract:
In today's digital age, children's screen time is a growing concern. This project aims to develop a user-friendly solution for parents to manage and monitor their children's screen time effectively. The system offers personalized recommendations, a time banking system, real-time monitoring, and a user-friendly interface. The goal is to empower parents, foster healthier screen time habits, and ensure children's well-being, education, and social development in an increasingly digital world. The solution recognizes each child's uniqueness and promotes responsible screen time usage through dynamic recommendations. It seeks to strike a balance between technology's benefits and drawbacks. By fostering transparency and an intuitive user experience, this project equips families with a potent tool for navigating screen time challenges and promoting a balanced approach to technology use.
