Kid’s Phone: How to Pick the Best One

A good kid’s phone gives parents the power to monitor and control their child’s digital experience. Here’s how to pick the best of the bunch. 

It is super convenient if your children have their own cellphones. (First of all, they won’t have to borrow yours all the time!) Jokes aside, having a personal phone can be a great safety measure. 

Benefits of Getting a Kid’s Phone

Having a phone usually means having access to the internet. Unfortunately, many dangers are associated with kids and internet usage. 

The Dangers of Cell Phones for Kids

When you decide your child is ready or needs a phone, then there are a few factors you need to consider before buying a kid’s phone. Different handsets offer different features and functionality. You and your child need to have a conversation about what type of phone they need. 

What To Look For

When looking at kids’ phone options, know what parental control options are available. Parental control options vary from only allowing specific phone numbers on the phone to blocking spam and inappropriate websites. 

With older children, have a conversation about expectations and rules. You can discuss what type of phone you allow, what parental controls you will be implementing, and your internet and phone usage guidelines.
