Choosing Your Child’s First Smartphone
Children, today, are tech savvy from a very young age. The requests from kids to have their own smartphone are directed at parents early and often as they observe their peers with one in hand. Choosing when your child receives a smartphone is a personal parenting decision for each family. Having an intimate understanding of smartphone options and features allows you to make the best decision for your home, and cultivate safe, calm, and healthy conversations as a family.
Join Kelly Newcom, author, speaker, and founder of Brave Parenting, as she discusses the brilliant marketing methods of the smartphone industry, right and wrong reasons to consider when giving your child a smartphone, and smartphone options available. Kelly will also discuss how to protect our kids with various options for setting boundaries, and most importantly how to nurture strong character in your child as they navigate the smartphone experience.
Parenting ever changing technology can be tough. But with expert insight we can bravely love and help our kids navigate safely.
