Are there any general family settings for time limits and/or program use available on the iPad?

Yes, there are parental controls available on the iPad 2. As a parent, you can restrict the content and applications that your children can use or view on your iPad 2. This includes Safari, Camera, FaceTime, Game Center, YouTube, Location Services, and more.

This is how to set up parental controls and restrictions:

1. Go to “Settings” and then “General”

2. Tap “Restrictions”

3. Tap “Enable Restrictions”

4. If this is the first time you have used this feature, you will be asked to enter and then re-enter a four-digit passcode

5. You will get a list of applications that can be enabled or disabled with a password lock.This is where you can choose the applications that you do not want your children to access. You can also choose the level of access to rated content such as movies, music and applications.

The iPad 2 does not have built-in time limit controls. However, there are applications you can download for this purpose. One such application is called TimeLock, which allows you to set a daily usage limit on your children’s iPad. When the time limit is reached, the device is automatically disabled.
