He probably installed an app that changes some file on /system (like AdAway). Stock will reset itself and you will lose everything if you do that.

Thankyou for replying. I echanged the device for a new one but my daughters has done the same thing tonight. Will see if it happens again. Any advice on prevention or protecting the apps?

Don't let them install any apps that you have not checked out. And track all the ones they do install.

Are guys stock or did you install custom recovery? Because if so maybe they accidentally wiped data/factory reset in CWM?
