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.
If you are like me, you love listening to music in the summer sunshine. There is just something about getting outdoors and letting the music motivate you. Whether you enjoy running, biking or some other activity, Jaybird’s RUN wireless headphones offer excellent sound with a customized fit for everyone.
My kids are smarter than me.
I used to think that I was really good with technology, but these days I constantly find myself relying on my kids for tech support. If you are like me, you want technology to simplify your life, not complicate it. Which is precisely what makes the Logitech Harmony Elite Remote with the Amazon Echo Dot the perfect gift for mom this Mother’s Day.
With 6 kids, I have a lot of electronics around my home. This includes multiple TV’s. The problem is that with 6 kids, I never have time to do many of the DIY projects that I want to around the house. One of the things on my to-do list has been to mount our basement TV to the wall and find a cleaner solution for all the cables that we have coming out of it. I’d been looking for an easy solution for a while so I was excited to come across the Legrand in wall power kit.
Do you dream of having a connected home? As a work at home mom, I’m always looking for ways that technology can help make my life easier. I was so excited to test out the Amazon Echo Show and Arlo Pro cameras and see how having a more connected home can help simplify the things I do everyday.
Working from home presents some major challenges, especially when you have young kids at home. With twin toddlers plus a kindergartner at my house right now, trying to get any work done while they are all awake can be tricky.
My office is on the main floor but it can still be hard to keep an eye on them while I work. I loved the idea of using the Arlo Pro cameras to give me “eyes on the back of my head”. Too often I’ve come out of my office to find that they have wallpapered the wall with craft glue and magazine clippings or discovered how to get the paint off the highest shelf in my kitchen.
Not only was it a safety hazard (hello little monkey children) but I don’t have the time to clean up gigantic messes every time I emerge from my office.
I was excited to see how the Amazon Echo Show and the Arlo Pro cameras could help me out.
