    16 year old twin girls prefer money. Still Christmas with a few things under the tree, but what can you do? Merry Christmas all.

    I'm really not sure about that one, seems too young to me

    I bought my son a tablet last year, but to be honest I take it off him most of the time because it's so anti-social.... he's also a boy of "that" age

    I'm thinking of giving him my old mobile because he starts secondary school next year and it would be useful to keep in touch when he's playing football, at clubs etc... . Still not sure it won't be more trouble than it's worth though

    not at all

    within days she was able to navigate to the play store..watch the youtube flick and install it
    she also deletes stuff she dislikes

    she's especially keen on the 'baby bus' stuff

    she managed a score of 290,000 on subway surfer...my best is 103,000

    she might well have asbergers though
    it's something i have been seriously looking into

    In the end.... (here anyway).... it's cold outside, everyone's on holiday, there's football on the tv, my son's birthday is the 26th so he'd be having presents anyway, I'm veggie so couldn't give a feck about christmas dinner anyway, we have a 2 foot tall crappy plastic christmas tree....

    not sure what my point is or was, but there you go

    oh, I've no doubt of the skills that can be gained for kids

    but how do you police the usage?

    they've got my old laptop, but there are parental controls on that, so I can limit the apps they use, the amount of time they spend on it and check the websites they visit

    couldn't find an easy way of doing all that on a tablet

    still, for a 3 year old the problems are slightly different, but there are still some issues

    I'll have roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings, carrots, sprouts and gravy probably

    we don't bother with a turkey anyway, an aldi chicken for 3 will do

    Yeah, similar age and problem.... would be really useful to be able to contact them sometimes, but mobiles can also cause trouble

    I'm going to give it a go, but like the tablet.... if there's any trouble or misuse I'll just confiscate it... I've got a sim where I can check the usage online and it's PAYG so he won't be able to overspend
