Give Kids Guilt-Free Screen Time With the Verizon Family Tech Initiative

Give Kids Guilt-Free Screen Time With the Verizon Family Tech Initiative

To be completely honest, I have very mixed feelings about electronics. On one hand, tablets and cell phones open up this huge world of learning. From educational apps, shows and even educational youtube channels, screen time is an important part of my child’s learning.

However, the world of uncontrolled screen time also makes me worry about the potential for online predators, garbage content and the possibility for them to become tablet or phone obsessed.

How do you provide guilt-free screen time to kids? Get all the benefits plus have control over content and limit time? There’s a tablet for that!

I’m a busy Mom with 4 boys! While I would love to say that they get my attention a full 100% of the time…it’s just not true. I have to wash the dishes, straighten up, wash and put away laundry and enjoy an afternoon break to make a phone call, have a cup of tea or coffee when the day allows. Sometimes one or all of my boys accompany me to doctor’s appointments, shopping, gatherings and I admit that there are many times when I hand them my cell phone so I can have a few moments of interrupted adult time.

Unfortunately, I don’t like giving my kids my cell phone. It doesn’t have any parental controls, I know they go right to Youtube and I can’t control their app activity the way I want to. Plus, I want them to have apps that keeps them engaged and learning and I don’t want them all on my personal cell phone.

Luckily, there’s a solution: The Verizon GizmoTablet!

The Gizmo Tablet is part of Verizon’s Family Tech Initiative. Verizon launched their family tech initiative to give parents new, innovative tools to monitor several aspects of their family’s digital life. They wanted to give parents real tools that help balance family life with digital life in an effective and easy to use way and the Gizmo Tablet does just that!

The Gizmo Tablet allows you to give your child access to a whole world of kid-friendly educational content with the GizmoTablet™ by Samsung available exclusively at Verizon. You set usage times and your child will be able to select from up to 300 premium learning apps based on their age and skill level.*

Want to disable kids mode? You can exit out of Kids World and unlock the full tablet experience for yourself! The GizmoTablet comes packed with premium features, including a 5 MP rear-facing camera, 2 MP front-facing camera and cinematic 8-inch HD display. And you can unleash its full potential by pairing it with the consistently fast speeds of Verizon, America’s most awarded network.

As a Verizon customer, I love that the company offers this device so my children can have fun while learning and I can give my kids screen time guilt-free with the control and oversight I need!
