Is there one? I want to hide the ones I don't want my 6 yr old dgd to access. I let her play a few kid games and sometimes she goes where she shouldn't.

I'm not sure on your question but I wanted to tell you that I created a page for my niece and nephew to use so all of their things are on one page. I'm not sure if that will work for you, but I just waned to give you that tip.

You can hide yours in a folder or tell her that you're giving her her own folder for her games. Each of my children has a folder on my iPhone and they know that that's all they're allowed to use; whatever's in that folder.

If all else fails and you have iOS6, you can use the Guided Access feature to keep them in one app.

I'd put yours grouped with a folder title and give her her own page where the icons aren't in a folder. With the different looks of the screen hers will look bright and pretty and yours will look a little darker as your using folders.

When you give her your phone make sure you have it set to her page not yours.

Oh, and my other suggestion if you can afford it.....get her an iPad and you hold onto it and let her use it when she is with you.
