When setting up my little girls new iPad, I instinctively just entered my apple ID to set it up. But now I'm starting to question that. I obviously don't want any of my iMessages synced to her iPad and I'm not sure FaceTime would work correctly if grandparents wanted to FaceTime with her. Won't she need an email address to use iMessage and FaceTime? Are there any pros/cons to using my current apple ID for this iPad? What are the pros/cons for getting her own email address and apple ID?

Thanks to everyone who reads and responds.

you can use different Apple IDs one on the store for the apps. Then create a new one in iCloud for iMessage and Facetime or leave it not logged in.

Both my kids have iPhones with their own user ID. I hold the password so there aren't any purchases made without me knowing.

Trinity if ur using safari u won't be able to make an Apple ID the second time if u failed the fist time due to the age problem....
Because the ipod stores the web cache and the website will know u aren't actually 13 and they won't allow u to create a new Apple ID.... This is the similar case with google accounts too..
To solve this just go to settings,safari,and clear ur web history and all caches if ur on ios 6
On ios 7&8 tap on clear history & clear cookies & data and do the whole thing again... It might work 😊
