It’s that time once again to head to the classrooms. This back to school year is a bit different for previous ones and let me just say, things are getting very interesting for our family. My youngest son is now in the fourth grade and back to the same school, so thankfully the familiarity factor is present. However, here we go! Our daughter (my little princess) just started pre-k. Which if you are a parent, you know how emotional and scary that can be. The kicker is, our eldest son, is entering middle school, or as my wife puts it, “the danger zone”. This is the age of transitioning into adolescence developing social and emotional characteristics into pre-puberty.
Back-To-School Readiness: We are Just a Call Away with Walmart Family Mobile.
Puberty is a scary time for any parent of pre-teens. During this time, communications between child and parent must be effectively sustained by having an open door policy. The key is to let them communicate their concerned and fears and for you to listen. For parents, it is important to continue communicating with your child’s teacher to monitor this transitioning time. This time is extremely stressful to your child, as well as stressful for the parents. In our case, our son is not only getting used to a new school. He also must getting used to a new schedule that includes, six different classes/periods, six different teachers, six different classrooms. This means that once the bell rings, he has about a minute to get to the his next class regardless of location in the school. If that wasn’t a full scheduled, his middle school is a Cambridge Robotic Magnet Academy that requires for him to maintain a high point average throughout the year.
Not just because they are my kids, but they are all quite witty, smart and love technology just like my wife does. Both my wife and I, want to see our kids succeed in school and to behave well both at school and at home. Therefore, to encourage them, this year I made a deal with all of them. If they maintain a GPA above 3.0, they have the option to choose several items from a given list of electronics and games. What do you think? Not a bad deal, right? As you can imagine they are quite happy, specially our oldest, who is already planning on his newest tech upgrade.
As a parent, it is important to know what my kids are doing at all times. The idea of middle school was quite scary and worried on how he would contact us in case of an emergency. After an obvious no-brainer, we decided to get him his own cell phone. And what a better way to stay connected with my son than through a new Walmart Family Mobile ZTE ZMAX Pamphlet Smartphone? This will bring the achievement of maintaining a constant two way communication between my son and myself. While I already have this phone, and works great, we decided to get the same one for him. Now that he has his own cell phone, he is Just A Call Away.
