Smartphones for Kids – Zact Makes It Easy! #MC

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 son really wants a smartphone this year for Christmas, but at 4 years old, he’s definitely not ready for that. As easy as that decision is to make, it’s way more difficult with my stepdaughter. At 17-years of age, she’s a totally different story. Sure, I have concerns about the amount of minutes, text messages and data that she’d use – what parent wouldn’t? There are a LOT of financial risks associated with giving your kid a smartphone.

Luckily, I was recently introduced to Zact Mobile, which is a no contract nationwide mobile service that offers parental controls. With Zact, I can easily control the amount of data and texts, plus I can create curfews to ensure that the phone isn’t in use when she’s supposed to be sleeping, doing homework or while she’s in school. Now that’s just AWESOME, right? Well, evidently I’m not the only parent that feels that way because The National Parenting Center recently awarded Zact with their seal of approval! Know why? Because it gives parents the power – – AND the average monthly bill is just $22! Um…what major mobile carrier offers you that?

So, if your kids are begging you for a smartphone this year, be sure to check out Zact Mobile and learn more about how their features can provide you with a little extra peace of mind when it comes to this stressful decision. If you do decide to go for it, the next choice to make is choosing a smartphone for your child. No matter what, remember that you’re the decision-maker. When your child is old enough to start paying their own phone bill, then they can choose what phone and what provider they want. Until then, the ball is in your court.
