OK~ July brings a time of year when families are traveling and staying connected. I am proud to be a brand ambassador for the U.S. Cellular Better Moments Blogger Brigade. This is a sponsored post that I have been compensated for. The opinions expressed here are mine and nobody else's. As a long time U.S. Cellular Customer, my experiences are real.
Our boys have grown up with U.S. Cellular and it has been fun to see how U.S. Cellular continues to evolve. All of the amazing programs that are available today, were not around when our boys first had their phones. As a parent, I wish they would have been. U.S. Cellular is making the necessary changes to keep families connected in our ever changing mobile society.
As more children begin getting their first mobile phones, parents are challenged with ensuring their kids are using their phones responsibly, courteously and safely. To make this milestone much easier on both parents and kids, U.S. Cellular has developed a Parent-Child Agreement that can guide the conversations parents and children have about cell phone usage. This Parent-Child Agreement came about through an online survey which showed that 91% of parents set mobile phone usage guidelines for their children, 63 % indicated they would find it helpful to have an agreement to guide their ability to supervise children's usage and behavior with mobile devices.
Having personally had the family protection application on our cell phones, I can tell you that this program is fantastic! Parents can set up an agreement that works with their children. Parents can see where their children are online with their smart phones and keep tabs on how they are using these devices. I wish this program would have been around 7 years ago when our boys were beginning to use cell phones.
U.S. Cellular has developed a Parent-Child Agreement that can guide the conversations parents and children have about cell phone usage. The Parent-Child Agreement is available for download. It's an easy process; well worth the time and effort that a parent needs to put into it. All parents want their children to be safe online, and this is a great avenue to see that they are safe while using their smart phones.
U.S. Cellular is offering free Device Workshops in July that are focused on helping families make the decision of when to get children their first phone along with ways that mobile phones can help families stay connected and strengthen relationships. At the workshops, U.S. Cellular associates will offer families tips on setting phone guidelines and then share suggestions to help with the decision of getting their children their first cell phone.
