If you are looking for a safe phone or watch with calling capabilities for your children, Gabb Wireless offers amazing options. Read this post for more information + a coupon to save 50% off all devices.
My two oldest children are in 5th grade (Adeline) and 7th grade (Elias), and both are in middle school. Yes, middle school starts in 5th grade in Nashville.
Most kids at their school have cell phones. Matthew and I have been discussing the appropriate age for a phone for a long time. We don’t feel comfortable with our kids having access to so much on phones, the distraction of apps, etc.
After a lot of research, I discovered Gabb Wireless and it was the perfect solution. Gabb offers cell phones without apps, the internet and even photos (if you want to limit them). Think a flip phone that looks like an iphone.
Gabb also has watches for younger kids/tweens that allow texting to select people who are programmed into the phone.
Gabb is currently offering 50% off all devices right now (making them just $49) with my link and the code JESSICATURNER. I think these would make great Christmas presents. This sale is only going on in November (the price will be higher in December), so I would order one now if you are interested.
