Knowing when to text them

When I was a freshman in college, I waited a full month before I asked my Mom if I could come home for a visit. It felt like forever. We talked a bunch that first month over the phone, but she never asked me if I wanted to come home. Was that hard for her?…

Somebody's watching you

One of my son's favorite activities seems to be asking when he will be old enough to have a smartphone.



This is a conversation that we have had often...and my answer hasn't changed. But, I understand why my son likes to ask: He is trying to wear me down. (That is one of his primary jobs as a…

A global view of children with smartphones

My son has asked me (for what must be the thousandth time) when he will be old enough to have his own smartphone. I pause long enough for him to tell me a list of children in his second grade class who already have one. I tell him that he isn't old enough for one yet and that the circumstances in his life don't warrant him having one "in case of emergencies."…

Home Phone Etiquette

Everybody is accessible ALL the time now.  Most of the time, this is a wonderful thing.  My car breaks down? No problem! I just call for a tow truck on my cell.  Late for my dinner engagement?  No worries; I’ll just shoot them a text message.  However, there are those moments (and I know you know what I’m…

Leaving the house without your phone

Last week while my husband was traveling I took my son out on a date (which means he got to pick dinner and then we went out for dessert). As I was answering his questions over ice cream, he asked me about nitrogen (because that is what five-year-olds are into these days). I went into my purse to get out my phone to look up more information, but realized it wasn't there.…

That's not the school bell ringing - it's your phone

I could tell open this post by telling a story about waiting in line to use a payphone in my high school to call a friend who was supposed to pick me up after sixth period. Or I could reminisce about when pagers became very cool and lots of friends at my high school had them.



But that would make me feel old,…

Kids and Technology (posted by Stacy Hladek)

Did you know that you could have a stranger in your home right at this moment that you are completely unaware is present?  If you or anyone in your home is communicating online or through texting with someone you do not know personally, then you are opening your home to a stranger.  Technology can be a wonderful tool, but it also can open our families, our children included, to new dangers.

A recent poll indicated that 90 percent of middle and high school student have…

Are Cell Phones Making Your Child Sick?

Cell phones have become a way of life and more and more I see them in the hands of youngsters.  Many families no longer have a house phone (mine included) because everyone is reachable via cell.  Have you ever seen that commercial where everyone is fighting over the minutes in the data plan?  It goes something like…

Best Phones Available Right Now

I'm pretty sure the last time I went to the store, there were about 10 new phones that I'd never seen before. I also expect that the next time I go into that store, I'll see 10 more new phones.

My point is that it seems like there is a new cell phone model out every day. But there are, in my estimation, a few that stand above the rest. So why not? Here they are:

1) Samsung Galaxy S III - This is the best Android phone on the market. It's easy to use, has a large…

On Amusement Parks and I-Phone Obsessed Parents

 
So I was a brave mama and took Em to Six Flags Great Escape this past Saturday. Despite the fact that we got a later start than I had hoped (thanks to a big old nail that made its way through our car tire), we had a really great time.
 
Sure, there were some stressful…

And Another Thing, Get Off My Lawn!!

My husband got a new cell phone.

 

His contract was up and his current phone was crappy.

 

Anyway, since the new iPhone whatever just came out, the not-so-new-and-barely-old iPhone whatever is now drastically reduced in price by $600 thereby catapulting it into our meagre price range and allowing us to have hip and trendy phoning, surfing, texting and whatever else-ing capabilities.

 

Of course, by "our" I mean "our". And by "us"…
