parenting, mental health 

Trying to figure out a way for kiddo to make his remote counseling sessions while he's not allowed to take his phone with him to school. This process is like launching a nuke.

I wish he could just have some healthy, balanced use of his phone bc he needs it to remind him of things, but he's been diving into it every day

what I'd like to do is give him like an ancient iPod Touch or something. No phone, no internet, just the calendar and reminders. The perfect ADHD proof solution

@InternetEh maybe a cheap smart watch?

@argentum @InternetEh I was going to suggest the same thing. I saw someone else on my feed talking about how he got some really nice kid-friendly ones for his family and they're almost too good to be true. I can ask the couple likely candidates if it was them and maybe pair you up if you're interested.

@bluestarultor @argentum I wish it wasn't necessary for me to be this tech savvy, but he's not setting limits for himself

@frainz @bluestarultor @argentum @InternetEh It was a VTech DX3, and it still kicks butt. Check my feed around the beginning of August. If you have any specific questions about specific things you need it to do, I can check the watch itself and let you know whether it does that thing. Kid's in school today and not wearing it so I can have a fiddle.
