Young Children & Tech: Buttons and KeysPosted: December 13, 2009
This will be a brief entry. If your computers and electronics are within reach of young children prepare for the worst. Here’s a list of items that I know of that could draw their attention:
- Illuminated remote controls ( TV, Receiver, DVD player)
- Computer keyboards
- Computer Mouse
- Video Game controllers
- Cellular Phones
- Portable Audio Players with an LCD screen
- Television Screens
On a related note, if the physical power button is within their reach, they’ll probably want to press it a one time or another, causing your PC to shutdown (at least if you’re on Windows) . If that’s the case then you’ll need to modify the Power Management settings and set the Power button on lid to “Do Nothing“.
Just a tip.
