Choosing a Kids Smart Watch | Kansas City MomCast Episode 52

Raising kids in the digital age, especially when it comes to choosing a first device. There are all sorts of smart watches and phones for our kids to communicate with — how do we know which is the safest? We discuss when to introduce a smart watch, when to graduate to a phone and how to keep your kid safe.

Megan Coffey
Hi! I'm Megan, former teacher turned stay-at-home-but-never-home mom to Peyton, 7, and Gage, 4. I host the Kansas City MomCast podcast! I'm married to the most patient person on this earth, Chris, and we live in Overland Park with our kids, an insane lab, and two guinea pigs. You can find me over committing to everything, reading informational and self-help texts, listening to podcasts, organizing, spending time with friends over margaritas, thrifting, and staying up way too late to have peace and serenity. I love people and hearing their stories and look forward to connecting with KCMC readers!
