I have been on the Internet and so have my kids long before social media was a thing. In fact, we celebrated the day that Facebook and Twitter were created. We high fived when Instagram hit the scene, and my kids LOVE SnapChat. However, there are certain things that I made sure to teach them when they became a part of social media. It’s called respect for themselves and for others. Today — I thought I would share with you how you can teach your kids about social media respect as well.

Working as a full time blogger has its perks, but there are days when my life is SO full from working full time from home, homeschooling my high school daughter, being my husband’s secretary and more, that some days — I want to just want to run away and hid and get some ‘time out’ time for myself. I’m excited to do that since The Sims™ 4 Launch just happened!

I was sent complimentary products in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.

I am one of those moms that carries all of her electronics with her. I have an ipad (hubby’s), my Kindle, my smartphone, my laptop, and I also have an ereader and all the other phones that my family brings when we travel together. I honestly never leave home much without my arsenal — because you NEVER know when you will need something to bide your time.

I spend a lot of time waiting at different locations. To have my Kindle handy is definitely a must.

I am an #HPSmartMoms Ambassador and received an HP Envy 5530 printer in exchange for my participation in this program. All opinions listed are 100% my own.

I love meal and menu planning in our home. It is the best way that I can make sure we stay on a budget, and how I also make sure that we eat healthy, and never have to wonder what we are having for dinner.

Disclosure: I received the following product repair from iHeart Repair solely for review purposes. Regardless all experiences and opinions are 100% my own.

My daughter has always been the most careful child when it comes to her smart phone and her ipod. Before she was allowed to get an iphone, she was given an ipod and asked to take extremely good care of it. That was when she was 12 years old. She had that ipod for 3 and a half years and her battery died. My husband and I was going to fix it — we tried and broke it so we had to buy her a new one.

We bought her the new one and she did great for almost a year of taking care of it — not a scratch on it. I was so proud of her. But then — one night while sleeping, it fell off the top of her bed, hit the wood, and shattered the screen.

I received compensation for writing this post about Talking Anya Dress Up & Pet Puppies and for trying out the product. All opinions remain 100% my own.

I have a lot of little girls in church that love to play with my phone and my husband’s ipad. I spend quite a bit of time finding free games that they can play that let them design to their heart’s content. The newest free app I found is Talking Anya Dress Up & Pet Puppies.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Verizon. The opinions and text are all mine.

Everyone in my household has some kind of electronic gadget or another. I have my laptop, my Kindle, my phone, and an ereader (hey — I like to read — okay). My husband has his phone and his Ipad. My daughter has her phone and her laptop. My son — he has his phone and his Xbox 360. To say we have to have a lot of Internet bandwith is an understatement.

Over the past several weeks, I have been doing a TON of shopping from my iphone. My daughter sits right next to me on the couch, so shopping for her on my computer is not an option. I can better hide what I am buying from my phone than I can my laptop. However, I realized that my phone is not a very good place to do shopping from because I really have no protection on there. At least, I didn’t until I downloaded the Norton Mobile Security app.

My cell phone bill is outrageous. I got my bill in the mail the other day and I almost spit my coffee out when I saw the total on the bill. I said to myself, “Is that number right? Surely there is something wrong!” I called my carrier and found out that this price was indeed right. After hanging up the phone, I yelled at my daughter to grab her coat. We were going to take a trip to the mall and visit Best Buy to see if they had any good deals so we could save on our mobile phone bill.

“I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Zact. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating”.

When my daughter was 12 we caved and got her a cell phone. I wasn’t too keen on her having one at first, but because she was spending more and more time away from home, I knew she was going to need to contact me. I wish back then, I would have known about Zact Mobile.
