Kids are getting phones these days. My daughter got one for Christmas, and she’s 10. I didn’t think she would get one, but I’m thinking parenting is a lot more about making decisions as you go rather than planning what you’re going to do. That’s NOT the point of this article, though. It’s whether or not to repair a kid’s phone.
As a parent, we know kids aren’t the most responsible people. They lose things, they drop things, and they break things. A phone is not immune to this, so what do you do when it happens to your kid’s phone?
Do you repair it and hand it right back over to possibly happen again? Or do you make your kid use it broken and possible cut him or herself on screen’s cracked glass?
It’s a personal decision. Yet, you want to know what other people would do. It’s okay – that’s why millions of parents search the Internet every day. They want to know what other people are doing to confirm their own thoughts.
Personally, I would just get it fixed. Let’s face it – kids aren’t the only ones who break things. We’ve all been guilty of breaking something important – yes, even our phones. What if we couldn’t get ours fixed? What if someone told us we couldn’t get it fixed? It probably wouldn’t make us happy.
Yes, we’re talking about kids here. They don’t get to have the same rights. However, they do experience the same feelings and much more intense than adults at times. To deal with those feeling, I believe you need to teach kids how to problem solve. Something is broken, so let’s fix it.
This doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t make my daughter pay for it. Just like an adult, you have to find a way to pay for that iPhone repair. The first step is to find the least expensive iPhone screen repair service (on iResQ of course), and then you have to find out how to pay for it. Doing more around the house – yes! Using holiday money – yes! Hey, if you break, you pay for it.
Now, what do you all think? Would you fix your kid’s broken iPhone or smartphone?

Hey folks. Welcome back. And bundle up, because winter isn’t relenting in Kansas. We at the Q were scraping snow off our windshields as of last Thursday. Yep, snow on May second. And third. Ah, the midwest. Well, it’s going to be wet this week, but at least it’ll be warm so we’re going to go ahead and call it spring. And that means a spring deal. For the month of May we’re repairing glass panels on your Unibody MacBook or MacBook Pro for a special discounted price. 13″ models are only $95 and 15″ models are just $105. Just check out the MacBook Pro repair services, click glass panel replacement and enter coupon code MAYDAY at checkout for your discount.
Have a great week everybody, and stay warm and dry.

Hello everyone! Hope you’re staying warm wherever you are, because the midwest winter is not relenting today. But here’s something to keep things toasty: a smoking hot deal on MacBook LCDs. If you have a black or white plastic or polycarbonate MacBook with a broken screen, for the next two weeks we will repair it for $29 off. That’s as low as $150 on some models, which is some kind of record. Just enter the coupon code “JANUARYDEAL” at checkout to get your discount. Enjoy your week, especially if you live in Baltimore or the Bay Area, or your last name is Harbaugh.

Happy Independence Day, everyone! I know, it’s been a little while since I’ve been on the old blog horn, but it has been INSANELY BUSY (yeah, I yelled that) at iResQ for the last three weeks. I’m just now coming up for air, so it’s time for a quick coupon! For the week of the Fourth (that is, July 4-July 11) enter the coupon INDEPENDENCE when placing any flat-rate repair on your MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPod, iPhone or iPad for 10% off your order. Simple as that. Alright, we’ll be back soon. Have a great and safe holiday, friends.

Happy spring, everyone. It’s certainly warming up here in Kansas City- I spent a good part of my weekend fighting the lines at Home Depot to get mulch and grass seed. Everyone has yard work and basketball fever this week. In case you didn’t know, Kansas is also playing in the NCAA National Championship tonight, much to the delight or chagrin of iResQ staff, depending on who you ask. No matter who you root for, if you’re like me you love a come from behind victory. Especially when it’s in the form of a defensive smackdown. Take a look at one of Jeff Withey’s seven second-half blocks:
Let’s make a celebratory deal on MacBook and MacBook Pro display glass repairs. Call it April Madness. From now until April 30, you can get your broken MacBook or MacBook Pro glass repaired for just $90. It doesn’t matter if you have a 13″ or 15″ MacBook or MacBook Pro, the glass is repaired by our Apple Certified industry-leading techs for $90. And if there are other issues like LCD or case damage, we’ll diagnose it and get you a quote while it’s here. This offer is only good through April, so don’t wait to get your order in.
Enjoy the final tonight and have a great week, everyone.
