$50 Amazon Gift Card #Giveaway from TeenSafe

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post brought to you by Advertise with Bloggers


TeenSafe is a company I have discussed before. They offer a simple setup that allows you to monitor any or all of your child's iPhone or Android phone activity, conveniently from one place. You can view your child's Facebook and/or Instagram activity, track the phone location (fantastic safety feature), and more. As I've said before, this is not something you want to have to use, but it's definitely something you'll appreciate having in place, if you need it.

While privacy is important and I value it highly for myself and my children, there are times when such features could very much come in handy. Having a child not home by curfew is one that instantly comes to mind. Instead of worrying and pacing, and staying up for a very long time (not that I ever did that with my second oldest son... huh uh, nuh uh, nope), I could have seen he was still with his girlfriend and/or friends a parent could have peace of mind in just knowing their child was breaking a rule (and deal with that appropriately when the child got home, or even the next day), but still safe. That beats staying up late wondering/worrying if everything is okay.

A late school bus is another instance that comes to mind. Having a child on a bus come home very late seems to be a common theme for parents, especially in inclement weather. Worrying and wondering where their child might be (are they lost? did they miss the bus? etc.) could be all but eliminated with the tracking feature that would show the child safe and sound en route to their home. 

Those are just a couple of instances that came to mind for me of great ways to use this application. There are many others I could list as well. Take a look at TeenSafe and see if you think it is a good fit for you and your family. New members get a one week free trial.

Now on to the giveaway: One lucky person is going to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card courtesy of TeenSafe. US/Canadian entrants only.

If I won, I would buy the game of Clue for my sons. We just love family game night.

trisha kilpatrick said...

I like that Teensafe seems to be a monitoring tracker rather than a blocking device. The blocking software would frequently block my kids from doing things that I asked them to do on websites or apps that I knew well and felt were safe. This seems to be empowering parents to better parent.
