Soon this will be a moot point because my son will know how to use my iPhone, but until then I'm worrying...
We had an incident recently where my son and I were home alone for a few days, and we both ended up with fevers and really sick. One night I passed out, and that started me thinking. What would he do if I was incapacitated and couldn't phone for help myself?
Although we have wonderful neighbors, I lock the doors at night and my 5-yr old son has a tough time opening the locks. So, assuming he is trapped inside the house, he would need to call for help.
We don't have a landline. Both my husband and I each have a cell phone. I know that's more and more common these days, so I'm wondering what parents do when they don't want to pay the $20-$30 extra per month for a landline.
So far I've thought of getting my son a prepaid cell phone, but from what I've seen, those too come with a monthly fee/charge more often then not (which is what I'm trying to avoid).
What else is there?
