Protecting your phone or tablet from children
We all know kids are naturally curious. Whether it is the television remote or the cell phone, our children love to push buttons and see what happens. What I have also always found amazing is that as soon I give one of my kids an old cell phone or a remote without the batteries, they are no longer interested. My guess is because they quickly realize when the batteries are removed, things stop beeping, making noise, lighting up, or changing channels. And that means zero fun for them.
As kids begin to age and understand how to control a cell phone, my kids love to play games on mine, the chances are pretty great that they could damage the phone. After all, kids are kids. They don’t realize that if they drop a cell phone, or even place it down a little rough, the screen could crack. And they certainly don’t understand that if the juice from their sippy cup leaks on your brand new smartphone, like what happened to mine, you could be facing water damage on the inside and a sticky mess on the outside.
Luckily, there are a few different ways to protect your phone, or tablet, from some of the mishaps that often take place when kids are playing with our electronics.
First and foremost, it is a very good idea to purchase some type of comprehensive cell phone insurance or coverage. I purchased a cell phone plan from ProtectCELL. They offer some great plans to cover all kinds of potential mishaps and damage. Even if you don’t have children, it is always a smart idea to have coverage from dropped phones, water damage, and the ever-common cracked screen. Smartphones are incredibly expensive and purchasing cell phone coverage will protect you from having to make a costly purchase that could’ve easily been avoided. And if you do have kids and yours love juice boxes as much as mine, and also love to stream movies while enjoying their juice boxes, chances are your phone or tablet will at some point become a sugar-filled mess.
A great way to keep sticky fingers at bay is using a product like Ghost Armor. Unlike some sticker-type covers, this type of cover wraps the entire device, providing great protection without a bulky case. They do offer a screen-only option, but if your kids are going to be playing with your phone or tablet like mine do, trust me, you are better off going with the complete coverage option.
If you want something that protects your phone whether you drop it outside in a puddle or your little one is having nuggets while watching a movie, the PelicanCase is the ultimate protection. Pelican is known for making rugged case solutions for a variety of products. Their cell phone model is water resistant, crush-proof, and dust-proof. While it is bulky, it is perfect to let you kids watch their favorite program while keeping your phone kid-protected.
What is most important to remember is that accidents will happen – whether they are made by your child or you. Luckily, however, there are a variety of different options available to help keep your equipment safe and protected.
