Android tablets are useful not only for work and studies. Parents and children alike find such mobile devices serve many different purposes may it be for communication, media playback, entertainment, gaming, and education. Adults like you and me may use these tablets differently but it doesn’t really matter because we’re of the age. We won’t tell you that you still need to limit usage because you should be responsible enough to know when to stop.

However for children, most of them won’t even think that they are past their time limits. Sadly, some kids don’t even have one. If you’re a parent, grandparent, or a guardian, or maybe a older sibling, it’s time that you set some rules because you don’t want the kids to be addicted to gadgets. And why shouldn’t you let them be glued to their screens? Because it’s harder to teach the children later on in their lives. Once they are addicted to their tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, or the Internet, you will have a difficult time stopping them.

Parents can set up the gadgets with limits. You can set a time limit or disallow access to some content or apps that are not appropriate for their kids. In case you didn’t know, it’s possible for anyone to control the stuff that can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. You can also set a password for future app purchases so kids won’t be able to download just about anything. All you need to do is set up a restricted profile and use it when your kid is about to use the device.

  1. Parental Control Software is the best solution I have found till now. I have tried talking to my kids about the hours they spend on their gadgets, I have tried everything. But, no successful results. So, I used one called Net Nanny and its is great! Now, I am the one who is always sticking her nose on cellphone 😉
