ChildSafe Content Controls

Our ChildSafe Content Controls offer unprecedented insight into and control over the content your children consume without the need to read every book in advance. Our matrix of content ratings contains categories broken down into dozens of nuanced subcategories based on both maturity and values factors. Our controls allow parents to see what factors each book contains, block, allow, or require parental approval for individual titles or entire subcategories, and personalize settings for each child in the family.

Verse Quotations Feature

Our Quotations feature lets parents and children organize collections of Bible verses into groups and subgroups. Parents can assign Quotations to a child for self-study, add leveled assessment questions to check a child’s understanding of the content, or incorporate Quotations with Library Collections for thematic learning. Quotations can also be used with the Verse Memorization Module to assign recitation practice of memory verses.

Verse Memorization Tool

Incorporate memory verses using LightSail’s Quotations feature. Then assign the verses to your child and set a schedule for study and recitation at regular intervals. Choose the days of the week and even hours of the day for LightSail to prompt your child to read the selected verses and record themselves reciting them aloud. Choose whether the verse will be available for the child to read during recitation or whether they should recite from memory. Parents have easy tools to check and record the accuracy of their recitation and track it over time.
