Mom-versations: KPRC 2 moms on kids & technology

Placing limits on screen time, and the joys of deciding the right age for a cell phone

HOUSTON – We live in a connected world, and it’s almost impossible to keep up with the latest tablets, gaming systems, and devices the kids are using.

Our “Mom-versations” series continues as KPRC 2′s Courtney Zavala, Amy Davis, Sofia Ojeda and Britta Merwin tackle the topic of technology and screen time.

“We don’t have a ton of technology. We have one family iPad, that we got when Kevin and I got married, so it’s like 12 years old, so we kind of share that one.” – Britta Merwin

“They all have tablets, but my oldest will be ten in March. He already told me yesterday that it will be the worst birthday EVER if he doesn’t get an iPhone.” - Amy Davis

Courtney decided to give her eldest son Connor a cell phone when he went into sixth grade.

The moms all agree that starting off kids with an old cell phone is appropriate.
