Estimated Reading Time < 1 Minutes

Ever since the arrival of touch-screen smartphones and tablets, children still in their baby chairs can access technology with ease. That doesn’t mean the fun and educational apps come without risk. Pay attention to the programs your tot is using. Is there advertising? Can they click a button and purchase add-ons that cost real world money?

Use parental control settings and pay close attention to the devices you share with your youngest children. And protect the devices from sticky fingers and accidents with screen protectors and cushioned cases.
