    I have seen many stories of families sharing iPads. I have to wonder if kids would be better of with iPod Touch. Less money, more control.

    I did not ask for parenting advice. BTW, who teaches their kid's to destroy expensive stuff? I think it's common knowledge that you would tell your kid's to be careful, but does that always happen? Of-course you could always have the most well behaved (and careful!) children on the face of the Earth. More times then not, that will not be the case for many people. It's like handing the keys to your car to a 16 year old. The Child will tell you she will be careful, but sometimes stuff just happens. Kid's tend to break stuff. Chances increase if more children are handling one iPad.

    Kids will only damage an Ipad if they are not taught to handle their belongings with care. My kids have always had free access to what other's might call fragile items with no disasters. My 5 year old grand daughter likewise handles her belonings with care. I have no hesitation in allowing her free access to my Ipad as I know she will treat it with care and caution. She is supervised with it as it has internet access.

    True! Very true! And I like the idea with the iPod Touch, but the flaw is, that they then still want to play the iPad......ok, I could tell them, that it is an iPad Mini......

    Wonder how long they will buy that story......
    Most likely written on my iPad

    Scrabble and air hockey is the game all the family like to play (this one is free) and this one is 0,99$ that’s the game wife and kids like to play with their iPad , my wife steal one of my wifi only … in fact that’s arrange me so she don’t ask for my 3G …originally she say i don’t need iPad 2 days after i got two she already decide one is her one …. so left only one for our testing … i guess that’s the case for many family since they get one in hand they want it

    I wouldn't trust my kids with my iPad(when I get it) They're 25 and 28. They'd be buying stuff with it on my account...

    This talk of parents not wanting to let their kids play with their iPads is kind of humorous. My nephew bought two iPhones when they first came out. When Apple gave them all rebates after dropping the price, he bought an iPod Touch for his Dad. When Dad's Touch got stolen, he bought an iPhone 3G and gave the original iPhone to his Dad. Seems kind of backwards, doesn't it.
