Do you have a room in your home that needs a quick refresh for a new school year? Our family room refresh created the perfect space for my family to gather so we can take advantage of the time we have together, which won’t be a lot once everyone jumps into their fall schedule. A big thanks to The Carpet & Rug Institute for sponsoring today’s post so we can share these tips with you.
Keeping my family safe is my top priority. After our experience with near-drowning, I’ve learned that the unexpected can happen, even if we assume that it will never happen to us.
I’m always looking for tools that help me keep my family safe, because with 6 kids I need all the help I can get. The OneLink Safe & Sound has been the latest addition to our home. This intelligent smoke and carbon monoxide alarm notifies you (whether you are home or away) when something isn’t right inside your home. It also has Alexa built-in so you can play music, control your smart-home devices, and more.
I laughed the first time that I saw one of my kids try to navigate a laptop with their finger on the screen. They could not figure out why it would not respond to their commands. This clearly is the touch screen generation and the HP Envy x360 Laptop is designed with them in mind. It doubles as a laptop and a tablet with both utilizing natural finger-touch navigation on the screen.
Raising kids in a digital world definitely comes with some challenges. In the U.S., many kids receive their first cell phone at ten years old. It is amazing that our kids have access to technology that helps them experience the world in a way that they never could before, but it does require some boundaries in order to keep kids safe. T-Mobile, our sponsor for today’s post, has some amazing resources for parents. I’m so excited to share with you some of the safe digital habits that we feel like every family should have.
