  13. 13
    In the "Kid Mode" section, we are looking for the first option that says "Parent Dashboard".
    Press down on this option, and it will open up our Kid Mode option. What we can do in Kid Mode is add a number of children. We can add multiple children and create a separate profile and separate page for each child. That means that we can set different limits for each child as well as age-specific activities. We can also let them use different applications. If we have one child that is 8, and one that is 14, we can create radically different pages for those children with features specific to their ages.

  14. 14
    In order to create a new page and add a child to the Kid Mode, we need to press down on the section at the top.
    Right now, it says "Bob", and this is the name of one of the children we have added to this application.

    As soon as we press down on that name, a menu will appear.
    It shows the one name, and underneath it says "Add Child".

    We can also edit the "Birthday" by pressing down on either the month or the year, and then choosing from the menu that appears.

    We can tap on "Edit photo" at the bottom of the square box to add a photo if desired.
    This will take us to our photo album. If we have a photo of our child, we could choose that, but we don't have a photo of our child currently. We can use any photo, so press down on a photo to add it. It is better to use a photo of the child because in the actual Kid Mode application, we'll be able to see the different children, and each one will be identified by this photo.

    That will save this child's profile.
