Zoodles Kid Mode keeps Junior from being corrupted when using your HTC phone
As a parent, sometimes it is hard to know exactly the right thing to do. For example, there are times when you need Junior to be on his best behavior sitting quietly, entertained. In those situations, like a long car-drive for example, we are willing to turn over our smartphone to Junior, hoping that he can find something interesting that will keep him quiet.

The problem though, is that there are a number of places online where a child has no business going to. And that includes your own personal files as well as videos that no one sitting in a child seat should see. The answer for those with an HTC smartphone, is the Zoodles Kid Mode app. Setting up an account for each child is easy and is free. After setting up your kids' account, head over to the Parent Dashboard to determine which apps you want to make available for each child. Be careful here. Keep in mind that letting your child have access to YouTube could result in him telling you all about that funny dance that he saw Hannah Montana do on your phone and no child human should have to witness that. Enabling the Child Lock keeps Junior away from your personal files and the possibility that he might accidentally erase the report that your boss needs on Monday.

You decide which apps your kids have access to

After it's all set up, whenever your kid touches his profile on the Zoodles page, he will have access to games, recorded storybooks and more. He will even be able to view some of his stuff on BlinkFeed as long as you've entered Kids Mode into BlinkFeed's Topics and services. You can even block incoming calls when Kids Mode is on. With the Zoodles Kid Mode, you can relax knowing that your child will be entertained by the age-appropriate content and the apps that you personally have vetted.

If my kid went through my files and deleted my stuff, I'd beat the hell out of it and then ground it. Best and effective policy.

"It"? I'm assuming you don't have kids & that's probably for the best.

That's way too much just for deleting some pictures or apps. For you to "beat the hell" out of your kid is typically frowned upon. A spanking every now and then isn't bad, but the way you phrased it made it sound like you were going to break their arms.

I agree with g2a5b0e.

Take them outside and let them choose the switch to do the beating with like the old days.
