Once your kids get their hands on a tablet, in some ways there's no coming back. The allure of apps, videos, games and distractions of all sorts is significant and can be a hugely useful way to buy yourself some peace and quiet, especially if you're working from home.
Of course, there's much more to it than that - you can also use tablets as amazing educational tools, and as ways to connect to your kids over shared activities.
