How do you make your tablet child-friendly?
Consider the purchase of a children's tablet
There are also special children's tablets on the market that have been designed with young users in mind. They are, for example, provided with an extra strong edge as protection against falls and are splash-proof. Thanks to pre-programmed children's apps, your children get to work immediately after unpacking. In addition, harmful websites are filtered out and you can set how long your child has access to the tablet, so that the tablet use does not get out of hand.
Download special children's apps
Nowadays there is for almost everything an app, so there are also many special kids apps. Games are superfluous, but there are also apps that children can learn from. Think of educational apps where you (often playfully) learn something about, for example, language or math. There are also apps such as Samsung Kids Mode, with which you determine exactly what children can and can not do on the tablet. There is plenty of choice in the Google Play Store and the App Store.
Use a child lock on your tablet
On both Android and iOS tablets you can easily make your tablet child friendly with a child lock. You choose to lock the screen for security and set a PIN code. Then choose an app that your child can use and lock the screen. This way your child does not switch to another app without the correct pin code, so let your child play with the tablet with confidence.
Protect your tablet with a sturdy cover
Tablets are vulnerable and an accident is in a small corner. The tablet may fall off the bench or a glass of lemonade may pass over it. So take it for sure and buy a sturdy protective cover. Certain covers are extra sturdy, so your tablet will be protected against water and water damage. This way your tablet survives a deluge of sticky lemonade and a fall from the kitchen table.
Take care of your touchscreen with a screen protector
If your touchscreen breaks, then you have nothing more on your tablet. A screen protector provides your tablet with an almost invisible layer of extra protection. The brightness of the screen does not decrease, but your tablet is better protected against scratches and dirt. So you do not have to frighten immediately when your kids frantically scratch the stylus. The screen protector also protects against oily children's fingers and keeps your tablet clean for longer.
Use a tablet car holder
With a tablet you can keep your children busy in the back seat of the car. For the longer car journeys it is useful to combine your tablet with a tablet car holder. Simply attach it to the driver's seat or front passenger seat and then click the tablet. That way, your children do not have to hold the tablet all the time. Set up a series or film and the back seat turns into a small private cinema. That way the car ride is quiet for everyone.
