Does Your Child Want A Smartphone This Holiday Season? Check Out What Zact Can Offer #MC #Sponsored

"I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Zact. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating”"

This year we introduced cell phones into the lives of our oldest two boys. However, not all my children were left feeling satisfied. Topping my youngest sons Christmas list this year is a smartphone. And while I know he isn’t fibbing when I get the famous “but, mom all my friends have one” line, I can’t help but have a lot of reservations. Yes, I like the thought of him and I always having a way to be in contact, but I have some big fears when it comes to safety and mobile usage.

I was recently introduced to Zact, a no contract nationwide mobile service, which includes parental controls that included the ability to set data and text usage,block contacts,  control the download of apps and even set curfews. My older boys service gives my some parental abilities, but not as complex as Zact. In fact, Zact Mobile was recently awarded the seal of approval from The National Parenting Center with average bills being around $22 per month!

If you’re on the fence whether to get your teen or tween a smartphone this holiday season, you might find Zact a beneficial option for you and them. I’m still debating whether a third smartphone will appear under our tree Christmas morning, but if it does I’m happy to hear that Zact plans (data, talk & text) are shareable and without the fees typically associated with family share plans.

This sounds great for a parent who doesn't have a lot to spend on another cell phone. It's a very affordable option.

This does seem like a good idea. I might have to consider it. My daughter would love a smart phone and she is going to be 10 soon, but I'm just not 100% sure that I am ready yet.

I'm undecided whether little kids really need a smart phone. I don't even have one.

My Littles will not be getting a phone for several years yet.
