How To Set Up An Apple iPad For A Child

I recently helped a colleague setup an Apple iPad for their 9 year old kid so that they couldn’t install paid apps, but could install free apps.  The kid would have their own email address and know their iTunes account password, though the parent could choose which paid apps they wanted to install. Also by carefully peeling back the plastic covering the power connector, we configured it and installed over 30 apps so that it was fully setup and full of apps as soon as the present was opened.
