There are obviously, serious worries around youngsters having telephones, with the dread of a lot of screen time, access to wrong info, peculiar apps, spending, and web based harassing and fortunately the Family Link (link) application tends to these, guaranteeing kids get the best out of tech while guardians and watchmen can protect them observed.

We both like the security a mobile phone brings and the reality, if necessary, Oliver has an approach to get in touch with me or any other individual, in a crisis.
