This discussion topic is in partnership with ParentPort, a website run by the UK's media regulators. They set and enforce standards across the media to protect children from inappropriate material. If you've seen or heard something you felt was unsuitable for children — maybe a programme on TV or online, a film, an advert, a video game or something in a magazine — feel free to start a thread here to discuss it with other parents, and you can also make a complaint to the regulators via ParentPort.

She followed a link through 'kissing games' and has just come downstairs in tears. Can anyone send me an idiots guide to putting some form of protection onto her ipod to stop this happening again please?

If you go to General, then restrictions, then it is usually self explanatory I think

Sorry, meant to say go to settings first, then to general, which is a heading in settings

support.apple.com/kb/ht4213 Not sure if it will block what you are talking about, I don't have an IPad, but you can try. TBH you cannot block everything as people put porn under many innocuous headings. You might have to disable Internet access unless supervised.

Thought I had disabled the internet but obviously not. I have now managed to do this so she can only access email and loaded apps. Thanks for the advice.

Also you can block sites via your wireless router in some cases, just in case they enable the Internet even after you disable it.
