The School Supply Every Parent Needs
Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Sivan Social. All comments and opinions are my own.
Some days, it feels like I spend every waking second worried about my kids. I think did they eat? Did they eat something that is in the food pyramid? Do they know what the food pyramid is? Have they learned anything today? Did they pick up their room? Do they have a clear path out of their room if there was an emergency? Do they know what an emergency is? No, it isn’t that we are out of snacks. That isn’t an emergency! That is an inconvenience at best.
I have been so fraught with worry about my children and their safety as school returns to session. I needed a solution. I wanted to be able to “call in a play” because our life is a mixture of the super bowl and duckpin bowling if I needed to do so. I wanted to make sure they got on the bus. I need to make sure they got off the bus. I need to make sure they know they aren’t riding the bus home because it is Tuesday, and they will practice. Oh, did they bring their shoes, shirt, shorts, water bottle, sunscreen, and snacks? I wanted to know that they were okay. That returning to school was going well, and if it wasn’t, I wanted to be there for them. I couldn’t bear to work without the tool to keep my children safe.
They didn’t need phones; I needed them to have phones.
MUST HAVE SCHOOL SUPPLY
We are all struggling with safety concerns. We have gone over every scenario in our heads, and they all end with we need a method of communication. We need to be one text away with an encouraging word. We know in return, we are going to receive a “K.” We know we will receive a jumble of letters that mean something that we will have to Google to understand. We need a solution to reduce our anxiety.
Verizon has the solution. They have BUY ONE PHONE, GET ONE FREE on sale from July 21 to August 10th. I say treat yourself to a new phone and get one for the love or loves of your life.
With the BOGO deal, you will get special pricing when you buy 2 phones at the same time. Take note that the phone must be of equal or lesser value than the phone that you are buying.
They have the Apple IPhone 12 Pro Max that start at $36.66/mo.
I also saw the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G that start at $33.33/mo.
Check out more available smartphones at Verizon.
I trust Verizon to provide the coverage and service we need. My husband and I have been Verizon customers for over 16 years. They have the best coverage domestically, and I have used them while out of the country too. I am someone who knows a deal, and their range is the best. What good is a phone if you don’t have service? We got a fantastic deal on both the phone and the multiple lines in our home. I never leave home without my phone. I never have to worry about not being accessible to my children with Verizon as our cellular service provider. When I think about my children’s safety, I know I can’t prevent everything, but I can provide them with a phone to help. I know where they are when they arrive, and I can send them everything from a reminder to clean their room to a note congratulating them on a good grade.
If you need a phone, the question isn’t if you need a phone it is which phone is best for your family?

Verizon always has the best programs. I’ve been considering switching over the whole family.

WOW i guess I never though about a parent worries and though when their kids are at school. This is a good deal and I am sure a lot of parents will take advantage of it. So many kids today have phones.

My little one is 5-years-old right now, but I know in the future we will look into a phone for her. Thanks for this post because I am sure many parents out there will find the information you provide very useful.

I have two teen girls so they both have a phone now, my son is 9 so he’s not quite in need of one yet. This is a great deal if you are in need of multiple phones.

This is the perfect list of supplies. Thank you so much, I need this right now, school is just around the corner.

This seems like a good deal and I have heard good things about Verizon.

When we grew up we had paper and a pencil, now every child has a brand new phone !!

I don’t have this worry but my nieces all have kids in school. All of the older kids have phones or how would a parent be able to keep up with them. My great great nephew is 6 and he has a phone but mommy controls where the phone goes.

This is a fab deal especially if you have 2 kids who are around the teenager years and needing to have a new phone each
July 28, 2021 @ 6:03 pm
Buy one get one deals are always my favorite. That is especially true with a phone.

Verizon offers great phones and great coverage. I love when they have deals on the phones because we can upgrade
July 29, 2021 @ 11:02 am
This is definitely an important tool for when it comes to going back to school. Sounds like a good deal as well!

I am a iphone person and I am on my 3 rd one over 20 yrs. I save my old one and great niece (4) has played with them since she was around 2. Parents give them that phone early for games etc etc. But I don’t know at what age they give the kids a phone for school. I know there are phones that have no internet on them. I am a glad that I don’t have to decide this

I am a iphone user but every one in my extended family has different types of phones. Kids and phones are a given today the question is what age to they get to start carrying one.

I have never considered a smart phone to be something for school, especially with so many schools banning them, but I have considered getting a smart watch that has text / calling on it, just in case.

Love this although I do not use Verizon from horrible past experiences. I do happen to o love an iPhone though and their deal sounds pretty amazing! I will have to look into it as maybe it is time to give them a try again 😉 Thank you for sharing this amazing deal and this iPhone deal is a fabulous deal to ensure you can reach your kiddos anytime and my kids are all about the iPhone too!
