Making your Mac safer for children...

I recently attended a chat with Mediocre Mum and Tony Anscombe from AVG, this was generally about how our children interact with the internet, as well as how to keep them save when online.

Now recently the 9 year old was lucky enough to get an iPad for Christmas, and the teenager has had a mobile phone for a few years.  It certainly did make me think about how they use their devices and what they have access to.  

Is this the future of parenting?

You may have seen my previous post about my first piece of wearable tech, however listening to the recent guardian tech weekly podcast, could your kids soon be wearing some tech to help you track them?

Anyone with a smart phone can already track friends (with their permission) with certain apps, for example Find Friends on the iPhone.  

However would you go a stage further and get your child to wear a watch size device that enables them to be tracked and contacted if need be?

Trouble getting your kids to brush their teeth?

As with most parents sometimes it is a battle to get the 9 year old to brush her teeth.

She is usually pretty good, however when she is tired etc it is often a battle! Now as you will know if you listened to my previous blog post, she received a lovely new iPad Mini for christmas.  Whilst setting up this iPad and making sure the app store was working correctly, I noticed this lovely little app called Aquafresh Brush Time.
