I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Zact. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
My 12-year-old son has been begging for a cell phone for Christmas. All of his friends started getting them in 5th grade, which in my opinion, is way too young. He’s in middle school now, so it would be nice for him to have a one, especially with all of the sports he plays. I’m still very hesitant though and worry about what he might be exposed to if he has a phone.
After all, kids these days can access just about anything on a smartphone and I worry that he will become obsessed with texting and social media. Thankfully, there are options for parents who want their child to have a smartphone, but still want to limit what their child can do with it.
I recently learned about Zact, a no contract nationwide mobile service, that has parental controls where I can easily set amount of text and data usage as well as set curfews, such as at meal and bed times. Zact was recently awarded the seal of approval from The National Parenting Center and their average monthly bill is only $22!
