In my latest Practical Mac column for The Seattle Times, I look at some of the parental-control options available in iOS to help keep kids from being exposed to troublesome content while using iPhone or iPad devices. It’s a tricky subject, because there’s not a single technological solution. From the article:
“This will come as no surprise, but the balance lies in a mixture of personal guidance and technology. I can’t tell you what to say to your kids — that’s the ongoing communication you should be having — but I can help you with advice on how to configure iPhones, iPads and iPods to use Apple’s parental-control features to restrict what they can be exposed to.”
I cover the highlights of what iOS offers, not any third-party apps or services. Read the column here: How a parent can take some control of kids’ iPhone, iPad and iPod use.
