Staying connected with our children
Find out how to stay connected with your children in today’s digital world.
Remember when you were at school and the only way to contact your parents was from a phone box or through a friend’s landline? Yep, you had to be at an exact point, at an exact place and at an exact time, just so you could get in touch with other people.

Kids and handphones
As parents, it’s important for us to be able to contact our children when we need to, anytime, anywhere. Whether they are in school, at a friend’s house or out and about by themselves, we need to be able to connect with them — and vice versa — as needed.
Last year, The Guardian newspaper reported on a UK study which states that one in ten children have a mobile phone by age 5. Similarly, a study reported on Yahoo Singapore concluded that 19% of kids aged 2 to 5 are smart enough to use one.
It’s almost certain then that our kids have the ability to use handphones — not to mention other devices and gadgets — if given the chance.
However, it is up to us to decide when to arm them with the technology they’ll need so we can keep in touch with them.
So when the time is right, what kind of technology should you be investing in?

Parents can also reap the benefits of a prepaid line for their children:
- Cost control. Parents are able to control the cost of the mobile phone bills and eliminate “bill shock”.
- Low usage and affordability. Kids won’t be using the phone that much so it is a much more economical option.
