Is your kid's favorite app really annoying? Terrible music that gets stuck in your head, overly sassy main characters or garish color choices may bother you so much that you avoid spending time with your child while they’re using the app. Instead, try to seek out apps that both of you love!
As with books, if you don’t like it, then you won’t be motivated to use it with your child. Tablet time should be fun for you, too!
