My kids have had iPads for a while now and it’s no secret I’m a big fan of the technology and the educational benefits it has to offer. Recently my daughter has discovered Netflix and the fact it streams one of her favorite shows, Disney’s Good Luck Charlie. Entertainment factor aside, when she discovered that this along with a whole load of other child-friendly content was available whenever she pleased, she proceeded to flick from one episode to another, watching what I can only describe as highlights.
