    Hi all,
    My son received a new iPad as a gift, he's only 7 so I'm concerned about what he can access. His Dad is very lax when it comes to monitoring what he goes on when he's at his.

    I've put a lot of restrictions on already and limited the age etc but is there an app that exists where I can remotely see what he's viewing and what he's been on? Ideally one that is 'hidden' so his Dad can't remove restrictions because he deems violent games ok for a 7 year old.

    No there is nothing you can install on iOS to spy on your kids. Kids today will get their fingers on the internet too, at some stage. You can restrict apps all you want, but sooner or later the internet will come into play. Apart from usage times and times when it's not ok to use the device, I don't think you have many more options other than the iOS restrictions you're already familiar with.
