In a few weeks, my son is turning 10. How 10 years has gone by is beyond me. While to me, I still see a little boy, the reality is that he is growing up. I am so proud of him as he’s truly a kind and responsible young man.
What I have noticed is he is starting to ask for a little bit more freedom. It’s hard to want to give it, but we have to start somewhere.
While the truth of the matter is, I am terrified of letting my son have more freedom. He is asking to go to his friend’s houses, play at the park or even stay at home by himself for short spurts of time. But, I am just trying to relax and trust my son.
How I Am Giving My Son More Freedom with Relay
*I received Relay to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.
Right now, our largest challenge is that I am not ready for another smartphone in the house. We recently started using Relay, a screen-free smartphone alternative. It works as easy as a walkie-talkie, and works everywhere. Relay was designed “kid-first”, but without sacrificing any of my needs!
Relay is perfect for kids because it’s water proof with a kid-proof rugged design.
So how does it work?
Relay works over 4G LTE and Wi-Fi, so it has unlimited range and works everywhere a phone does. I love that about it!
It’s super simple to use: just press the button, talk and release
Use the companion app (for iOS, Android, and Microsoft) to manage the Relays on your account, use GPS tracking to see where your kids are, see real-time battery levels and talk directly to the Relays on your account.
- Relay is $6.99/month for service on each Relay.
I hope you will check out Relay for your family here!
