My child is in the red overuse section on Doodle

When your child logs in to Doodle, they’ll see a gauge with an arrow in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. This shows your child whether they’re on target to achieve their weekly star target.

If your child earns additional stars over their weekly target, they'll enter a 'red zone' on the right-hand side of the gauge. Being in this zone will lock all activities in Doodle.

The red zone indicates that your child has used Doodle for more than the suggested time in a week. Locking additional activities helps to promote healthy screen time, as we don't want children to spend too long in front of a screen.

If your child enters the red zone and you're happy for them to continue with their work, you'll then be asked to enter your parent PIN; once you've done this, the activities will be unlocked.
