Our good friends are very tech savvy and recently amazed us that their monitor interfaced with their iphone, allowing them to view their sleeping baby from any location. My wife and I are way behind the curve when it comes to baby-related technology. Are there any other gadgets or apps out there like this one that you can’t live without? - Chris, StrongMoms Facilitator
Update to this story... my 2-year old got a hold of my wife's iphone and actually managed to post photos to my wife's Facebook account. This is a real eye-opener for us... time to start managing passwords and locking devices! We also need to childproof our cable channels.
I feel your pain. I had to change the locking mode on my phone because my daughter will get a hold of it and start browsing the internet and access the expensive apps. Thank goodness she hasn't downloaded or accessed anything inappropriate. I did find an awesome free toddler lock app for my smart phone that will turn your screen into a drawing pad with shapes and music. I love it because my daughter can get a hold of my phone and touch anything she wants and not access anything she shouldn't. To unlock it all you do is touch the four corners.
That is what I need... what was the app Brinny... right up my alley!
I believe it it called toddler lock. If you go to your app store and type in Toddler lock Into the search field then it will come up with a ton of apps. Some are free and some aren't. The one I have has a icon with a star circle and square. Hopefully it will ībe easy for you to find.
Oh my gosh, toddler lock! I had no idea. My niece loves my iphone and so i a bunch of programs downloaded on it for her to play with. I tried to find more educational apps-art, reading, spelling, animals. She will however play with it until the battery is completely dead. So, I now have the rule that we do 20 minutes timed of iphone time (screen time I consider it) and then the phone goes back in Aunt Jessica's purse. I then will sometimes make it so that she can earn another 20 minutes later in the visit if she is well behaved. This is if I'm visiting for several hours. She really respects this and is a good sport about it-and as always lots of positive reinforcement for abiding by the screen time policy. I emphasize that i came to visit her and if she is online then we don't visit! She will be four years old in October so she is a bit older and understands all this. -Jess
