Idea for Common Sense Media

OK - we don't have an iPad and admit to not having tried this app. But the concept of enabling kids to do their notes in a whole host of different ways is awesome, and I could see it being very well received. I wish Common Sense Media would partner with Apple or Google on a phone totally geared to kids, where the apps are reviewed by a respected organization like CSM, or parents at least have the ability to remotely control what does and does not belong on the phone so kids could use it more to their advantage and we could avoid all the parent-child battles over screen time/game time. I'm sorry but - based on our experience - middle schoolers just don't have the impulse control (and vision) to use their phone for communication, education, organization, time-management, etc... All that other good stuff is best added later.
