  9. 9
    Now it says, "Adjust these sliders to promote games that teach these subjects to Ash"
    .
    Ash is the child set up for kid mode. The sliders from top to bottom are "Math", "Reading", "Science", "Social Studies", "Cognitive Development", "Creative Development" and "Life Skills". These are all of the different subjects that appear in the games in kid mode, and we can prioritize what subjects we want the kids to learn. If the child is struggling in a certain area and we want to focus on a particular area to help them improve, we can prioritize those particular subjects.

  10. 10
    To do that, just press down anywhere on the scale
    .
    Currently, the scale is in the middle for every section by default. This means they're all equal, however if we want to prioritize some, we just press down on the scale until the blue circle has moved. Now we can see that "Reading" is very much prioritized. If the child is very good at science, we can move that scale down to focus less attention on science. We can change any of these subjects in the same way.
