Giveaway - AT&T Mobile Safety School & A Chance to Win A $50 VISA Gift Card
We've been having the "when can I get a cell phone?" conversation for a few years now. My kids see it as a "when" rather than an "if". And I have to admit, while I thought 11 was a bit too young, there have been definite times when I am glad Ryan has a phone. We got him one over the summer, a couple months before his 12th birthday. Complete with rules we expect him to follow.
Some of his friends have had them for a few years already, and I readily admit that the exposure it offers him freaks me out at times. He's a good kid. He's a smart kid. He has tech-savvy parents. But sh*t happens - right?
How do we protect our kids while teaching them to use this technology responsibly? How do we help them make good choices?
If you are a parent (or grandparent, or aunt, or cousin) of a tween or teen, you know that there are REAL issues that kids face today when it comes to mobile phones. Issues like bullying, privacy, over-usage, texting while driving and MORE.
AT&T has made a commitment to be a leader in providing education, resources and tools to help families better manage their mobile safety. And I am happy to be working with them to share this information with you.
