Back To School With Teenage Drivers Made Safer With U.S. Cellular Family Friendly Apps #SPONSORED

Disclosure: As part of the Better Moments Blogger Brigade Program, I did receive compensation for this post. The opinions here are mine and nobody else's. I have been a U.S. Cellular customer for 15+ years. In fact, I have never been with another cell phone company.

OK~ There's a new school year upon us and more people take to the road, which includes teen drivers. I remember the day that both of our boys headed out the door as first time drivers to school. I said a prayer as they left and was happy to see them maturing into young men. Our family, of course, had incidents along the way, which made for some hairy times in regards to driving.

Did you know that U.S. Cellular provides a high- quality network and national coverage that keeps customers connected in big and small cities, as well as rural communities? I happen to live in a rural community, and U.S. Cellular meets our families needs, day in and day out. I am also happy to see that U.S. Cellular continues to meet the needs of families with young drivers. Five years ago when our youngest started driving, these tools were not available.

 U.S. Cellular offers resources that can help families with young drivers. U.S. Cellular's Vehicle Monitoring System allows parents to identify their son or daughter's location and any mechanical issues with the car.

 After putting the easy-to-install module in the car, moms and dads can use the app on their Samsung Galaxy 6 Edge.

According to a recent Better Moments survey, 82 percent of parents surveyed have rules about their kids' cellphone use. Do you and your family have a plan in regards to how cell phones are used in your home? If you don't, I would highly advise that you set those rules asap.

U.S. Cellular offers one of the best family friendly parent-child agreement's in the marketplace today. This app helps parents facilitate a conversation with their kids around acceptable use of mobile devices. You can download the agreement U.S. Cellular Better Moments Parent Child Agreement.  I can personally tell you of two families that utilized this agreement after having experience a crisis with their 13 year old sons. Install this agreement before it is too late. The safety of our kids online is more important than ever, be proactive and catch the little problems before they grow into big problems
The agreement is customizable and parents can use it to set certain parameters for phone use as well as driving responsibilities and limitations.

Parents and teenagers can agree in writing that young drivers should not use their cellphones while driving. Texting and driving is something that everyone needs to take seriously. Lives can be saved when we all put those phones down while driving! Make the commitment today to stay connected with your young driver today. Be the parent that makes the difference, your kids will thank you. After All, It's All In a Mom' s Day, Right?
