    My toddler is WAY better at the Ipad than I am and has figured out how to get around any protections I have done for my apps. I have the restrictions on my Itunes, etc - but he is able to get into my personal apps and is deleting/changing files, notes, recipes, plans, etc...
    :mad:

    Any idea on how to either group all my apps in to a restricted area or group all his apps and only give access to those??

    Any help is greatly appericated!

    What restrictions do you have on your apps under the restrictions in general settings?

    Only restrictions I have on IPAD in the general setting are for Email, Itunes, Camera, Facetime. I have nothing to protect my IBooks, All Recipes, VOLUME (that's the BIG one), Notes, etc...

    I have password locked the IPad, but it doesn't do anything once its open and given to the almost 2 year old to play his games...
