6 Ways to Toddler-Proof Your Gadgets
Living with a toddler is like watching a rogue country develop weapons of mass destruction. One day, you think your 1-year-old couldn't possibly enrich uranium on his own and the next he's learned how to pull your smartphone out of the nightstand drawer, turn the TV off while you're watching it and grab a $500 tablet off your desk, just to bang it on the floor.
Recently, a 14-month old in Oregon bought a vintage car on eBay when she grabbed her father's phone, and tapped a button in the app. While my son hasn't done any online shopping yet, he managed to turn off my wife's desktop computer by crawling over and hitting the power button. You can't put the toddler genie back in the bottle, but you can take steps to protect your gear from the hands and mind of a preschool pillager. Here are six ways to toddler-proof your gadgets.
