    Now we will go to settings.
    Tapping the red settings button one time gives you an option to choose. Here we have the audio, background music, sound effects and then we have content controls. Beneath that where we can limit search or turn off search so that children can't search. We can clear our watch history. There is a privacy policy link, terms of service, Licenses to review and addition help should you need it. Also, there is version information as sometimes the version changes and updates and different features may be specific to a particular version.

    This is particularly helpful for children who don't pay attention to the time or for adults who may be too busy to actively monitor the children's usage with the device.
    You simply slide the slider up and down to the desired time, and click start timer. When that happens you can hand the device to the child. If you find the timer is too restrictive, another thing that works well is making sure that when you give the child the device the battery charge is low enough that it will simply run out of battery charge and you will need to have the device charged.
