Circle with Disney at Best Buy | Monitor Your Child’s Online Activity

Circle with Disney at Best Buy
If you have kids between the ages of 4-18 then filtering content, managing screen time and staying informed about what your kids are doing online is pretty important. I monitor absolutely everything that my kids do online. Everything. I look at all of their text messages and everything that they do on their computer. I am their parent, they live in my house and I know everything that happens online at our house.
We just introduced Circle with Disney into our household and I love it. Installation was super simple and now I can do everything that I was doing before in less time, all in one place. Have you heard of Circle with Disney available at Best Buy?
