Young Children & Tech: Buttons and Keys

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.
