    I am tired of my kids not listening and installing games on my phone when i let them play a game that i installed. So i need some type of way to block the market place from installing anything without a password first. That or have a password to enter when you launch market place.

    I haven't tried either of these, just stumbled upon them, but take a look at App Protector or Seal.

    My kids can play games on their Macs, on their Nintendo, on their PS3, on their own phones, and on all their friends' devices. My phone is a restricted area, behind an unlock gesture. Not for kids' games. I don't touch their game machines, they don't touch my phone. Full stop.

    Android Protector

    It seems that you can also protect apps as well.
