Hi Elrond, Thank you for that.  It is a partial solution to my
concern about children. I am still hoping for a stylus that is
part of the phone, for convenience reasons.

The suggestions about an alternative back were promising.
My current phone has the stylus in a slot at the back and
it is wonderful. I have trained myself always to put it back
after use and I always have it,
That means all I need to grab to take with me is the phone.
The only other thing I carry all the time is my keys.
One of them maybe will do as a stylus.
