Kids these days are more familiar with tech gadgets than their parents at times. To keep up with their growing urge to learn more on the internet, parents must be a step ahead of their little ones.

On the occasion of Children's Day, parents can connect with their kids on their level by not only encouraging them to explore their technological intellect but also by steering them to the right path. While the internet can be a great tool for kids to learn, it can also be as harmful due to its open nature.

We are listing a few top mobile apps for your kids' iPad or Android tablet that can help boost their knowledge while keeping them away from the internet cons. Instead of keeping children entertained with the social media sites, here are a few interesting ideas to keep them occupied.

YouTube Kids App

Everyone's familiar with YouTube. It is the world's largest source of free videos online. While there are certain limitations to what kind of videos can be uploaded to the site, there are also some that can influence children in a bad way. So it is safe to say that YouTube is for adults.

But Google is not letting down the future of the world. The official YouTube Kids app helps children discover videos, channels and playlists they love such as Thomas & Friends, DreamworksTV and Talking Tom, online hits like Mother Goose Club, Super Simple Songs and Wonder Quest. The app is free to download and can be useful in several other fields such as sports, animals and crafts.

Netflix is a quite popular TV and movie-streaming app for users of all age groups. But there is a Kids feature in the app, which allows any family member on the account to enable kids' content for their children.
