I don’t know about you but I remember my tween BEGGING me for a mobile phone last year. He was ready. He was about to head off to grade 7 and was walking to school with his buddies. We had many discussions about what type of smartphone was suited for his needs.
There are so many options out there but if you’re looking for a phone for your kid you may not want to invest in something major if you know what I mean. After all, they may get dropped, lost, or stolen right?
So, you want to get a decent smartphone for your kid.
Where do you start? I went through the checklist with my kid and it was pretty simple.
ME: I WANT TO KNOW WHERE YOU ARE. If you’re going to be late or your going to a friend’s house after school or if you get, ahem…detention. Let me know.
KID: I want to text my friends.
KID: I want to take pics.
