How can I stop adult themed books from opening on my kids' kindles. My kids use their Kindle Fire's to read so I don't want to block all books, but some that myself and my wife are reading may not be suited for kids. Is there a way to block adult books, instead of all books?

Thanks, I'll have a look through all that. My big concern really is when the books are bought, it asks which device you want to download it to, but it pops up on all six of our devices. 2 iPads, 2 iPhones, and both the kids kindles. Thanks again.

It will only download to the device you specify but it will show under the cloud tab on all other devices. If you have parental controls set then nothing can be downloaded without a password.
