Win a Relay The Anti Smartphone for kids Just in time for Back to School season is written in partnership with relay Congrats to our winner Paula
If you’re anything like me, heading back to school is a genuine struggle.
As the mother of two between school supplies, new clothes and having my son and daughter leaving for new STATES and schools, I’m abundantly consumed with anxiety.
My son is going into Manhattan every morning all by himself, and my daughter is moving to Wisconsin for college. How will I stay in touch with them? How will I know that they’re safe and sound? Isn’t there some simple safe way for a Jewish mother to always be on their neck or their arm?
Yes they have their phones but they almost never answer them, and just when they happen to, they seem to have no idea how to conduct an extended conversation. There has to be a way where I can always be in touch with my child and know exactly where they are at all times. That’s where relay comes in.
Relay is the smarter phone for kids. It works similarly to a walkie-talkie but has all the same features of a smartphone.
These phones have gone over really well with parents of kids a bit too young for the responsibility and addictive qualities of a smartphone but ARE ready to walk to and from school.
Or parents like yours truly who has the only teenager who doesn’t really care for answering or texting his mama on his smartphone.
It has GPS tracking so mom and dad can track their kids as they walk! And since my kid will be taking a ferry and a subway to get to stuyvesant high school every day this could not come at a better time!

Relay is at the cutting edge of simple and affordable family communication solutions. In 2014, the Relay team was inspired by a new marketplace hunger for a communication system that could meet the needs of an entire family.
They were motivated to harness the complex technological advantages of smartphones and still eliminate the screens, cyberbullying, and danger of child predators. In this way, relay could provide a simple exterior with all the technological benefits of smartphones, including utilizing wifi and cellular networks; saving their customers a lot of money in the process.
Relay is basically a high tech walkie talkie for reliable and straightforward family communication. By way of what looks like a small handheld speaker, through the click of one button parents have total access to their children, and can track their location in real time through the Relay app.
Especially for children who aren’t yet mature or responsible enough for all the features of a phone, Relay provides an elementary avenue in which even five year olds can use a device with all the elements of a true iPhone. The amazing part of this advanced technology is that Relay has the connective ability to work and broadcast over every network imaginable, so no matter how far away your child may wander or into any foreign territory, parents will always have the ability to locate and be in contact with their child.
The designers accomplished their goals in the sense that all the harmful effects of iPhones were discarded with Relay: no screens that could prompt addictions, no personal data or phone numbers, and most importantly, NO opportunity for privacy invasion by strangers. Furthermore, the battery lasts all day.
But the most important thing kids desperately wish to hear: is it fun? The answer is yes, but in a healthy way. Through multiple channels on the Relay app such as daily joke, instant chat, echo, music, and translate, Relay has created a precursor to the vastness of the internet with its own little “app store”.
