As one of LeapFrog blogger panel members, I have been sent their new safety guide which has been created for parents to help protect children online. More tablets were gifted this Christmas than ever before but following this festive tablet boom is a growing concern amongst British parents about children’s safety when using such technology. To help with this, LeapFrog has created a safety guide for parents entitled: ‘Children & Technology’.
The LeapFrog ‘Children and Technology’ guide reveals key stats such as 1 in 10 families have experienced unexpected bills after letting their child play with an adult tablet or smartphone, and includes comment and advice from experts including:
· Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, Manager of the LeapFrog Learning Team
· Janette Wallis, Editor of The Good Schools Guide
· Stuart Miles, Editor of online gadget site, Pocket Lint
The guide can be viewed at http://www.leapfrog.com/etc/medialib/leapfrog/uk/parents.Par.0549.File.tmp/LPF1301292_Children_Tech_Parent_Guide_V4%2017.12.13.pdf
