Looking for a kids cell phone to give your kiddos for Christmas? I’ve got you covered. Take a peak at the one we have been using this year and enter to win one yourself!
One of the most sought after Christmas gifts over the last few years has been a cell phone. Since many houses forgo a landline phone, without a cell phone, they have little ways they can communicate with others.
Why I Decided It Was Time For A Cell Phone
As a parent, you usually just know when something is needed. Over the summer when my son turned 10, a basketball court opened up down the street. Immediately he and his friends wanted to go shoot some hoops together and since it was only two blocks away, I felt it was safe to play without an adult.
The problem was, he had no way to communicate with me if he twisted an ankle, ran out of water, felt unsafe.
At that same time my daughter was begging to just be left alone when I needed to run simple errands like pick up a prescription.
I knew it was time to probably give them a way to communicate with me. But the thought of giving them a smartphone full of apps and unlimited access to the world wide web wasn’t something that felt right to me.
After researching, we chose Palm, the phone that literally fits in your palm, because it had everything I was looking for in a first kids cell phone.
- It only costs $5 a month and has zero contracts.
- I can easily monitor all of their activity and their location.
- It’s built with Gorilla Glass and is water resistant. (Giving them an extremely breakable electronic is just asking for trouble!)
This gives me a way I can give my kids a safe way to connect with me when we need to be apart without worrying about them getting consumed by the screen.
Over the last few months it has been so wonderful to have this device around to empower them to have a small bit of independence and to allow this worried mama bear some relief.
I’m giving away a Palm phone bundle.
