Thank you for the suggestion! I will look into the Jelly phone. Small and light is important to her. We are more concerned with the cost of data and we also don’t want her to be sucked into using the phone for anything besides BG and phone calls/texts. There are ways to lock things down, some more effective than others and some that add even more cost. As long as she’s not interested in a smartphone, I’m happy for her not to have one. I will look into the possiblities, though.
We homeschool, but she does go out and about in the neighborhood with friends and that’s when she really needs a handy way to see her numbers. There are also times when she paticipates in an activity without us like today’s river rafting trip and the occasional sleepover. As you read in my original introduction post, she often doesn’t hear and/or ignores her Dex when busy with friends, so the watch will hopefully help her be more mindful.
