    Question Child Restrictions

    Hey all,

    I have a Android tablet - but my 3 year old has taking a liking to it. I dont mind really as i think in moderation it can be a great learning tool and fun at the same time.

    Basically my problem is

    a) i want my tablet back
    b) i want to restrict his access.

    So i am going to buy a tablet for him. Nothing flash.

    He is a good boy - but i need some restriction. For accidental or curious clicking.

    Basically here is my thoughts

    A) Remove all apps he wont use
    B) Use an app lock program to lock everything except his programs (including settings (can i do this????) and email). This way - he can slowly start to email his uncle - as long as we are with him.
    C) Use Norton parent control (i think) to restrict web access to no sites i havent agreed.

    So my questions are

    A) Can i lock settings?? Can i stop settings being changed from the bottom right hand corner also?
    B) Is there anything else people can suggest.

    Before people say anything he only uses it under supervision - however it only takes one click on an advert in app to start browsing the net :-)

    Also - just thinking. Is there any time monitoring apps? So we can keep track of usage?

    Sorry for all the questions - just thought i cant be the only one?

    here's the market link to 2 excellent free apps that will do what you need. (they both also have paid versions that do even more). they work great for me and my 3 yr. old twin grandchildren.
