Technology is a double-edged sword and the Internet can be a dangerous place, especially for kids. So, parents, it is important to manage your children's interaction with devices.

To highlight this, Apple has just introduced a new Families section on its website with tips and guides of some of the parental control tools and features built into its devices.

For example, there's a special Kids section on the App Store with apps that have been curated especially for children. Parents can even set restrictions so your kids can only download content that is appropriate for them.

And with features like Ask to Buy and Family Sharing, parents can even review and approve app purchases, so you can prevent your children from installing new apps like social media or photo sharing.

And if you really want to limit your children's online activities, parents can even turn off the Safari web browser on their children's device.

There's a ton of other tips and guides on the page and I think all parents should definitely hit on the link below to go check it out.
