Net nanny turns the tables

broken tablet screenLast week, I lamented how my #magicmoments were becoming more infrequent. Perhaps that was unfair, it’s just that they’re changing in nature.

This week, the joke was on Boy (in the nicest possible way).

Although we try and limit Boy’s screen time, it’s fair to say we meet with more than a bit of resistance. It didn’t take long for him to circumvent net nanny. And, recently, a virtual high security lock on his tablet has appeared.

Privacy issues aside,  the code breakers got to work. And this is the result.

Well, it brought a big smile to our faces and a grin to Boy’s (after he’d twigged that he doesn’t have a monopoly on pointless downloads and general tomfoolery.)

No tablets were hurt in the making of this video, and only a smidgin of nine-year old pride! And those giggles still make me smile.

Joining with Oliver’s Madhouse for some #magicmoments this week.
