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......

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.
