Home Audio/Video/Mobile Options For Families With Teenagers
Raising a teenager is like is like nailing Jell-O to a tree. Fortunately I only have one right now, but another one will become a teenager in two more years so I am trying to balance our parenting choices between using practical decisions while understanding a typical teens self-indulgent desires. Currently, our teenager wants ever piece of technology under the sun and while we try to monitor his usage he is very responsible and respectful and we think allowing a targeted amount of media access is reasonable and normal.
We are considering turning our living room into a more practical and useful sitting area by putting a big screen TV and sound system in place of a mirror so that he catch watch the shows he wants while his little brother and sister can watch the shows they want. We have a large age gap between all of the kids so pleasing everyone can be tricky at times.
A big screen TV and a sound system can be quite expensive, but lucky for us, tax refund season is right around the corner and we trust Samsung at Walmart to make that extra cash in our pockets go the extra mile. We currently have a Samsung TV hanging in our family room and have never had a problem with it so we are partial to the Samsung brand.
I am also thinking in the future for when he leaves for college he will need a new tablet and phone. And with all of the latest improvements in technology, users can turn their smart phones into a TV remote so I suppose we will add that to the list. Walmart carries the following brands of Mobile Phones at amazingly low prices:
- Verizon J1 -$49.82
- ATT Express Prime – $79
- Straight Talk Galaxy S7– $599
