How to Make a Better Use of Smart Devices
July 27, 2014
In this post you are going to find out how to better use smart phones and tablet computers with your little kids.
One of the first things you need to keep in mind is that neither smart phones nor tablets can substitute parents and real person-to-person interaction. They are better used as an additional way to encourage kids to learn something new. Kids would also benefit more if YOU guide them through their educational process. Make sure you know how the app works before you show it to your kid. By doing so you will be more responsive to your child and will avoid the lack of communication that usually occurs when you try to figure out how something works.
As a parent, you want your children to enjoy the benefits of a smart phone, but you also want to keep them safe. Safe from certain Internet web sites, app purchases, and social networks. And all this is actually doable. Take an iPad or an iPhone, for example, and go to the Settings-General-Restrictions. Here you can adjust all the settings to match your personal preferences. This way you will prevent your kids from going on the App Store spending spree and you will know exactly what kind of apps they explore.
We hope you’ll find these tips useful and get a highly enjoyable experience from using smart devices.
