If there’s one product that you may have neglected to add to your back-to-school shopping list that is not only essential for safety and keeping yourself and your child in the loop (and that your eager student is most definitely longing for) — it’s a new smartphone!  A few years ago I would have been dubious at the thought of a tween or young teen needing a phone as a back-to-school essential, but my has the years changed. 

Now, almost every teen and quite a few tween’s own their very own smartphone and for many good reasons.  Not only do smartphones offer the reassurance and safety of quick communication (either via phone or text) but now, your child can do the same educational research, learn a new language,  read a plethora of books, create a document or design a poster right from their smartphone.  That’s not to mention participating in group chats with classmates when getting together is near impossible.  There’s honestly nothing you can’t do with a smartphone these days, well except for having it fold your laundry for you or babysit your kids, but hey, pretty sure there’s an app for that.


Luckily, TELUS has some amazing BTS offers on smartphones including a new Samsung Galaxy S7 or and a great starter phone like the iPhone 6!
