See Kai Run Review & Giveaway

Have you been introduced to See Kai Run yet?
If you have, you already in the know and if not, you’ll want to know about these amazing little shoes.

See Kai Run started with a mom, who in 2002 gave birth to a little boy named Kai. See Kai Run was inspired by the need for a comfortable shoe that also encompassed flexibility and style.

We were excited to receive a pair of See Kai Run shoes for Siena. Although we are fans of all of See Kai Run’s shoes, we chose the Indria . The first thing we noticed was the flexibility of the sole. You can bend them back and forth with ease, although the bottom of the shoe is very durable. This is going to promote healthy development of your little ones feet.

The inside of the shoe has quite a bit of cushion to it, making these a comfortable choice for your little one’s feet. The inside of the shoe features a soft leather lining adding to the durability of the shoes.

The outside is made of very soft leather, therefore the tops are also very pliable. The straps have a padded velcro closure, allowing your child the freedom to “try” to put them on their feet, themselves. This is a big bonus for us moms! The more confidence we can build in our children, the better off they are.

See Kai Run shoes are also wide enough for the chunkiest of feet. I have received many emails asking what shoes I would recommend for wide feet. These are them!

As you can see, See Kai Run encompasses everything I look for in a quality shoe. In fact we were so happy with the pair we received, that we ordered two more pairs to add to Siena’s ever growing shoe collection. The Elaine and the Melody. Believe me, their are so many cute styles, you won’t be able to choose just one!

Right now at See Kai Run they have many of their styles on sale! I also encourage you to sign up to receive their emails. This will allow you to be the first to hear about new styles, sales and special offers from See Kai Run.

See Kai Run is also doing their part to help others. In 2008 See Kai began a “Share a Pair” matching event. Every shoe that was purchased on their Web site they matched which enabled them to donate over 9700 pairs to Soles4Souls! YES, 9700! That deserves a BIG pat on the back!

Here’s the best part:

See Kai Run was kind enough to offer one of my lucky readers a pair of shoes from their See Kai Run or Smaller collection.

So how do you win?

Free Trial: Norton Online Family – Because Safety is our #1 Concern!

As a mother of two girls, you can only imagine my concerns when it comes to Internet safety. Although my girls are not old enough to “surf the net” yet, i will face that day very shortly and boy does it scare me!

When we were kids, our parents only worries were to keep an eye on funny cars in the neighborhood when we were out to play. Now, our children have access to an entire world of possible dangers. Not only are they exposed to possible dangers, but they have the world of technology at their fingertips, paving a way to dangerous content. Wouldn’t it be nice to monitor everything your child does online? To see what their online interests are? What their searching? Who their talking to? Don’t worry, Norton’s gotcha covered!

In an effort to keep children safe, Norton, a trusted provider of Internet safety products, has come to the rescue, with the introduction of Norton Online Family Beta. Norton Online Family Beta is not only designed to block your child’s Internet activities, but to connect you, the parents, with your child’s online life.

Check out some key features:

Simple, One-Time Set Up: Create an account online and customize each family member’s profile based on age and maturity level.

Easy to Use and Access: Check a child’s activity or modify a child’s profile, preferences, or time allotment anytime and anywhere using any Internet-connected device.

Clear Reporting: All activities are reported in chronological order and only show the Web sites a child intended to visit – eliminating all the extra URLs, like ads, from Web sites.

Helpful Search Insight: Easily view what words and phrases a child uses to search and where those searches lead online.

Convenient Web Site Control: Control the Web content that flows into the home by prohibiting more than 40 topic categories.

Secured Personal Information: Track, report and prevent personal information that a child may purposely or accidentally try to send via e-mail, IM or social networking site.

Access to Social Network Information: Monitor activity on social networks like Facebook and MySpace with the ability to see how kids represent themselves, when they login and how often.

Real-time Messaging: Built-in messaging allows parents to have real-time discussions with children about activities and better understand their intentions when visiting a Web site.

True Transparency: Children are able to view the “house rules” they established with parents at any time and are notified when Norton Online Family is active, so there is no “stealth” mode.

Custom Alerts: Parents can customize e-mail alerts to address urgent events so they know immediately when a child has reached a time limit or visited a blocked site, etc.

Useful Time Management: An easy-to-use time management feature that – if parents find it necessary – gives each child a “curfew” that will limit computer usage.

Looks like Norton’s really covered it all!
Here’s the best part:
Norton and Mom Central are offering you the chance to sign-up for a sneak peak by giving you a
free trial. I encourage you to watch the demo and try out Norton Online Family Beta and get one step closer to your child’s online activities.
