TikTok Users Discover Ultimate Parenting Hack For Baby & Toddler Screen Time

If you’ve never given your child your smartphone only to get it back with a random contact’s face upside down on the screen, a million selfie bursts of half of your child’s face, and several apps being navigated at once—are you really even a parent?

Let’s be honest, no matter how much we talk about how bad screens are for our kids, there’s no getting around the fact that sometimes, screens just let us get stuff done.

Thanks to some tech-savvy new parents on TikTok, distracting your small children with an iPhone no longer has to be a struggle.

In a now viral TikTok video, Melissa Jean and her husband walk users through the ultimate parenting hack for iPhone users, that will lock the phone on one single app while children are using the device.

In the video, Melissa’s husband explains about an iPhone feature called “Guided Access.” It’s in your phone settings app, and when you turn it on, Guided Access allows you to lock the phone screen on a single app, and disable all other buttons.
