8. Thou shalt be aware of in-app purchases
Be aware. You might be using your tablet as a babysitter, entertaining your little one, but it turns out that even free games, have something called “in-app purchases.” Built into many “free” games are options for your child to buy more “coins,” or “stars,” or “candy-flavored moonbeams.” Whatever it is, they cost money and if the tablet is tied to your credit card, purchases can be a tap away. Hey, it even happened to Kanye. Do you think you’re immune?
Fortunately, there’s a walkthrough to prevent this, so your kids will need to ask your permission before planting a stupid digital farm. Bonus: that means they have to talk to you! Trade them one boring story from your childhood about learning an important life lesson for each virtual purchase.
