BEVERLY HILLS – It may be common place these days to see young children operate a tablet with great ease. But giving a child a tablet may end up becoming an expensive endeavor for the parents.
A study conducted by ‘The Fixables’ reveals that children are the biggest destroyers of tablets.
The Fixables, a company in the business of repairing tablets and smartphones, found that most of the tablets it repairs, got damaged because kids got their hands on them.
What are the most common problems?
“Kids standing and sitting on the tablet,” says Marco, who works as a tablet repair technician for the company. “That will break the screen really fast which is an expensive repair job.”
Another common problem is kids pushing the tablet off the table while it is plugged in. The sudden hard pull from the power cord warps the internal connector which could possibly damage the motherboard.
Dropping the tablet on the floor while holding it in their little hands is also a frequent occurrence.
Scratches on the tablet screen made by kids using regular pens to write with, is yet another expensive repair job.
Then there are the somewhat more outrages damages where kids drop the tablet in the bathtub or even leave it laying on the porch in the rain.
The Fixables says parents shouldn’t forbid their young children from using tablets but they should teach their children proper tablet handling procedures.
“Tell your kids they can only use the tablet when they sit down at a table with the tablet resting on the tabletop. Don’t let your kids walk around with the tablet.,” Marco recommends.
“If kids are in a group delegate who can operate the tablet to avoid fighting over who operates the gadget. Many times that’s when tablets end up on the floor,” according to Marco.
Repairs can be costly, especially when the screen needs to be replaced. Sometimes the tablet is so badly damaged it can’t be repaired. “It’s at those moments that parents realize they should have had a ‘tablet operation code’ in place because now they can’t access their own information anymore,” according to Marco.
