As we progress through the years, technology becomes more ingrained in our everyday lives. Constantly evolving, constantly changing – it can be hard to keep up at times. Our day to day tasks are arranged, planned and noted by electronic devices. The more I think about it, the more I realize that my day is pretty much run by some sort of smart device… I wake up to an alarm on my cellphone, I get up and have breakfast while reading emails and checking my schedule for the day. I read the news online, find all the information I need on Google, find my way via an online GPS system, stream my favorite shows from the internet, secure my home from an app, control our gate via phone and virtually run my business through a website and social media platforms.
These parental controls block harmful websites & apps, protect children from cyber-bullying and sexually inappropriate behavior, and allow parents to control when and how the cellphone is used. Parents can also track their kids’ whereabouts at any time and receive alerts when their youngsters leave a designated area (such as your home or school). Laura from Harassed Mom is trying the device out on her teenage son, go read about it here.
Like I said, technology could be absolutely amazing.
Not giving children phones is not a realistic answer according to KidTech. Rather give them the right phones with the correct safeguards and protections.
KidTech has ensured that the phones are cool and are appealing to teens. The cellphones offered are Huawei P8 Lite 2017 smartphones, which look similar to an iPhone or Samsung and come with a cellphone case and free KidTech stickers to decorate the case. Plus kids can chat away to other friends who have KidTech phones for free. I have a Huawei myself, and I absolutely LOVE it!
Children want to be connected and parents want to be responsible and protect their children; and that is why KidTech is on a mission to ensure that your children can be young, connected and engaging, whilst being safe and protected from the dangers of the world that wait beyond. That is how you find the balance.
I will be posting a series of posts going more in-depth of each of the features of the KidTech devices and touching on the subject of technology and our kids, so please let me know if you have any questions whatsoever.
