No Roy, I am challenged at editing this AM.

<runs to fix problem>

ETA: Done. Thanks Roy. No Kindle Fires for the short people. Just one for me. ;o)

"none of my short people do NOT have a Kindle Fire"

So they all have one then?

First, I am the parental control.

Second, my short and very short people know that if they try to circumvent their parental units, they will lose said devices.

Third, I research before buy, which is why none of my short people have a Kindle Fire. They do however, have Kindles, Desktops and HP Touchpads. The Kindle does not require digital blocks, and I have set the digital blocking on the other 2 devices. I do not intend to monitor an 8, 9 and 17 year old 24/7. Common sense takes care of a lot of issues, IMO.

You have to drag out the whine a little... like this:

Do it for the CHIIIIIIIIIIILDREN!

Yep. Exactly. My dad used to use one, and made great name signs for my kids.

Easy! It's a device for carving decorative edges on wood and creating dado joints. Right?

I wish people would learn how to use the features of their router. That is all the parental controls you need.

Clip clop, clip clop, over the bridge we go?

Let my son use the browser. He made a face 3 websites in and never touched it again. Lol. He also knows I will do random device checks to see what he's doing w devices. He knows better than to do whatever cause we'll find it. Knowing his parents are looking is the best parental control I've come up with.

Anything is possible. The OP hasn't returned, so I know what I think about the post.

In reply to an earlier post on May 1, 2012 7:38:49 AM PDT
Perhaps the OP purchased (2) basic Kindles at WM for the $30 GC offer, no?

Posted on May 1, 2012 7:37:35 AM PDT
"This was going to be our first purchase of an E-reader but I am adamantly opposed to handing a pre-teen uncontrolled access to the internet. I have already purchased two kindles,"

Oops, even the OP can't keep his story straight. In the same sentence.

In reply to an earlier post on May 1, 2012 7:37:03 AM PDT
The OP specified that he has a "basic kindle" not a Fire. Lets not confuse him with stuff that isn't relevant to his device.

In reply to an earlier post on May 1, 2012 7:35:14 AM PDT
Hit post and realized that lol. So used to people going on about the fire lol maybe will help the next 20 who jump on bandwagon of how horrid ammy is.

Apparently, you have never tried to surf the net on a basic Kindle.

Sorry David, but the basic Kindle is NOT a net surfing device. I think you really need to do a little bit more research into the matter. There is not going to be any net surfing on a $79 Kindle.

The OP said "basic Kindle." I took him at his word.

On e ink

The e ink browsers are crippled greyscale that doesn't do flash freezes on facebook and is a pain to use. You can have it forget wifi.

Why don't you do your own parental controls? You can set your router up with permissions of when a device connects to the internet. Very simple solution.

He said "basic kindle" so there is no gear wheel, app store or kid place.
