How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

How Due Date Calculators Can Change Your Pregnancy for the Better

Would you hand your child $300? No? Then keep your phone to yourself

I think about the number of times I have thoughtlessly handed over my phone to my son. Normally, I think about the amount of screen time he has had that day and his overall behavior, but I rarely think about the fact that I am handing over an expensive piece of equipment to a child.

And, I am sure that many parents don't think about it either, which is why this study on parents spending around $2.8 billion to replace broke... is an eye-opener.

I have a very strong case around my phone since I am apt to occasionally hand it over to my son, but I like their additional rules:

  1. Never take your device to the bathroom.
  2. Don't use electronics while eating or drinking.
  3. Don't place them in bags where they can be crushed.

My phone has been damage-free so far (knock on wood). What has been the most expensive piece of equipment you've had to replace because of child's play?

Apple juice - yikes! We have given our little guy an old phone with just his apps on it, but I am so bad about bringing it with me when we are going somewhere that he'll need help distracting himself. I think I just need to leave it in my purse next to mine.

Oh my goodness... I work for Apple and I see horror stories! The cutest, littlest ones are usually to blame for broken iThingies. I've seen playdoh shoved in CD drives, phones soaked with apple juice, computers drawn on in permanent marker.... So I think I take a little extra precautions because I'm reminded everyday of what can happen should I let Ben play with my phone.. I handed him down an old iPod touch in a super protective case, but I would not be surprised if he found a way to break it still!
