We all know that tech devices can help simplify our lives. From something as easy as being able to take a picture on your cell phone to home devices that can tell us the weather with a touch of a button (or just simply by asking verbally). But tech can also help our kids out, too! In fact, Verizon helps make it easy for kids to get online safely with great tablets, smart watches and phones. And if you're worried about your kids' safety as they browse the web or play on their phone, Verizon helps cover that too! With plans that are catered toward families, smartphones that track your child's location and add restrictions like content filters, you can rest assured that your child's tech devices are safe for them to use.
The My Verizon and My Verizon Smart Family apps track your child's phone location and usage right from your very own device. It's a helpful way to stay on top of what your kid is doing on the web. The Smart Family app allows you to add up to 20 trusted contacts to your child's phone that they can reach whenever, regardless of restrictions. You can also limit how many texts are sent and received. Track how your kids are spending time online with the Web and App Activity feature and keep tabs on your child's location via a GPS locator. It also allows you to add content filters to block certain apps and websites. Parents will love that they have the ability to add usage limits and even pause the internet! Plus using the app is simple—just pair your device with your kid's device using the Smart Family companion app and you're ready to get started!

School's out, and as the temperatures start to heat up, creating a summer reading list is a cool way for parents to connect with their kids and foster a love of learning. This month, Save the Children has launched a reading campaign, 100 Days of Reading, to get kids excited about books.
"Knowing what's at stake for children in America in terms of summer learning loss was a motivating factor for Save the Children to create this easy-to-do 100 Days of Reading campaign," said Carolyn Miles, CEO of Save the Children. "Read a Story, Change Their Story has the potential to make transformational change for children. We've set an ambitious goal to log 100 million minutes of reading this summer to benefit every child and hope you'll join us."
We've rounded up a list of page-turners by age group to entertain your kiddos and make them want to pick up a book and not put it down during the lazy days of summer. Help Save the Children reach 100 million minutes by logging your reading time together with the kids.
