Our oldest child is 9 and does not have a cell phone. Actually, her dad doesn’t have one either because he lost his pre-paid one during harvest about a week after I loaded it for the year with $100 and… (oh, perhaps I’m getting off track?!)
Anyway, she doesn’t need one so she doesn’t have one. Yet. (Oh, yes friends. I know my day is coming, and it’ll likely be sooner rather than later!) However, that doesn’t mean I’m not concerned about mobile safety for kids right now.
There are real issues that kids face today when it comes to mobile phones: bullying, privacy, over-usage, texting while driving and more. (That list raises my blood pressure!) AT&T has made a commitment to be a leader in providing education, resources and tools to help families better manage mobile safety. If you are interested in learning more, AT&T is offering the opportunity to one of my readers to attend a virtual Mobile Safety School session – along with a $50 VISA gift card.
The virtual Mobile Safety School schedule is as follows:
Oct. 23 at 1p ET – mobile safety for kids 8-11
Oct. 24 at 1p ET – mobile safety for kids 12-14
Oct. 25 at 1p ET – mobile safety for kids 15-17
To enter this giveaway, simply tell me which session you’d attend and what your biggest mobile safety concerns are. Giveaway ends Saturday, October 20, at 11:59 pm, CST. A winner will be randomly drawn and notified by email.
Disclosure: I’m partnering with The Motherhood and AT&T to bring you information on mobile safety for kids. After the webinars, I’ll let you know what we learned!
