VTech Grandparent's Day and VTech CareLine Blog Tour Campaign - #VTechCareLine #sponsored

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 12:00 AM 0 comments
Disclosure: This is a compensated post. I recieved a VTech’s SN6197 phone to review from VTech as well as monetary compensation. However, all opinions are my own.

I'm excited to be chosen to participate in the VTech CareLine Blog Tour Campaign. As a grandparent, I think it is important to have a safe way to stay in touch. When I recieved the VTech’s SN6197 phone I couldn't wait to try it out. 

If you're like me or have an elderly parent who struggles with using the phone because of small buttons or safety issues such as worrying about falls, then VTech’s SN6197 is the perfect phone to use!

I have fibromyalgia and a lot of steps in my house. There a lot of days when I am by myself and afraid of taking a tumble down the stairs, but with my new  SN6197 I feel safe and secure. 

Here are a few of the great features of the SN6197 to keep your loved one safe and sound.

  • Complete System: The CareLine™ Corded/Cordless Answering System with Pendant makes it easy to communicate with family and friends, while a portable safety pendant puts you in touch with the help you want—from anywhere in your home. 
  • Portable Safety Pendant: Everyday conversations and emergency calls are just a speed-dial button away. Wear it around your neck or clipped to your waistband for the most mobility at home.
  • Voice Amplification: Increase the volume of incoming sound by up to 40 decibels so conversations are easier to hear and understand.
Additional features include: 
  • No monthly monitoring fees. This is a great feature for someone on a fixed income or tight budget.
  • Voice Announce Caller ID.  This feature is awesome for those who can't see well.
  • Big buttons and large displays. Another great feature I love!
  • Photo speed dial. This feature lets you add personal touches with photo speed dial.



Grandparent's Day is September 7th, what better way to say I love you, than giving piece of mind and safety to your loved one than a VTech  SN6197 for protection and piece of mind.

Kid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.

Keep Momming

Posted by Debra Ann Elliott at 6:57 AM
Disclosure: “I participated in a campaign on behalf of  Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”



Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.

That’s why I’m pleased to be joining Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.

The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub, KeepMomming.com, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.


Check out Holly’s message about how she keeps momming http://goo.gl/MR8HL2, and don’t forget to visit KeepMomming.com.
