Cell Phone Safety For Children

Many children lead very active lives where they are not always under the direct care of their loved ones, whether it be after-school programs, sports, tutoring, or visiting a friend’s house. When parents are also busy and often move around themselves, it is increasingly important for children to have cell phones to communicate with their family should there be any problem.

Safety should always be a top priority. One of the best and most effective ways to ensure your child's safety and to teach them responsibility is to provide them with a cell phone -- but one that won't break the bank and allows you control over what features to enable. The TracFone prepaid calling card puts you in charge of how many minutes your child can use and how many text messages they can send. Make sure they know how to dial 911 and that their battery is properly charged. TracFone allows customers to dial 911 even when the phone's minutes have expired; just make sure to add minutes at least every 90 days or your service will be disabled for inactivity.

Cell phones are not always just about talking to friends or family; they can also help your children stay safe in an emergency.
