Did you know? Apps can wrack up bills with in-app purchases.  Extra lives, special tools, expansions, and more can be as easy as a tap.  Settings → Restrictions will let you disable in-app purchases.  This is a great way to give young children a little more freedom on your iPad without worrying about unexpected charges.  (It’s great for many grown-up games, too!)

Parenting Shelves

The Parenting Shelves located in the Children’s Room of the Library contain resources for adults working with children, including homeschooling, learning differences, early childhood development, discipline, nutrition, family changes, and more.
