Smartphone Child Management Tools

Kids start using technology at such an early age these days, that they become very comfortable with it very quickly.

This has led to smartphones and tablets becoming digital pacifiers for lots of parents because they are pretty darn effective at doing just that to our kids.

We’ve all seen the parent that tries everything to get a child under control only to find that handing them a device is the only successful approach.

That’s where it can become a bit of a dangerous proposition as allowing a digitally savvy child unfettered access to everything on your smartphone.

Whether they do it intentionally or not, they can wreak havoc in a very short period of time if they can make use of everything.

The good news is that both Apple and Google have built excellent control tools into their operating systems, so all you have to do is learn how to use them.
