    Keep them away from the computer you use to sync the ipad. You can always put them back as long as they are in your itunes. Deletion is only permanent then and only after emptying the trash or recycle bin.

    Strict policies. My kids are only allowed to play with the iPad, when I'm arround.
    Otherwise the iPad is with me anyways......

    Teach them that when the little crosses appear, they must hit the home button. Works with my 5 year old grand daughter.

    My girlfriends kid asked me "can I use your iPad when it get here." I told him yes, but only if I'm watching.

    And if I look away to sneeze or blink occasionally, he should should stop until I'm again fully watching with vulture-like intensity.

    The same way to keep them from taking a butter knife and poking their sisters eye out...... Be a parent ;)

    I liked the "little crosses" and home button idea the best......

    For every deleted app, delete one kid.

    I have all my granddaughter's apps on one page, I hand it to her open to that page, and if she were to delete, she will go without and knows it! She also can only use it while I am sitting nearby.

    The iPad must go on a 7-8 foot-high cabinet top.

    What annoys me more than one of my kids deleting (or almost deleting an app) is that they constantly push the home button in the middle of playing a game. Then they are lost amongst all the icons to get back to what they were doing. They hand it back to me, I open the app again, get back to where they were in the game, hand it back, they play for a couple of minutes, click the home button, and the cycle repeats itself until I get too frustrated to deal with it.
    A way to disable the home button would be nice.

    It happened to me to but I talked to Apple and you can re-download them for free. Just go to them download and first it will have the charge and look like u will be charged but just click install and it will tell u you already downloaded it and there will be no charge. I have "HAD" to do this numerous times.
