Parents – are you ready to kick off the school year?
Because there are plenty of ways you can proactively make this easier for your kid – and for yourself!

As you are populating your calendar with all the school activities for the fall, take a few minutes to add school blocks and holidays to the TimeManager for your kid’s kajeet phone (go to kajeet.com, Configurator, TimeManager to do this). You can block calls and messages during school hours and after certain times of night to make sure your kids focus on school and are not interrupted at night with texts or calls from friends. (Note that your emergency or “always allowed” numbers will get through a calendar block).
This is also a great time to get familiar with the kajeet.com site – especially Account Activity which gives you a detailed list of how the phone is being used at various times of day. It will let you know if your child is using picture messaging and whether it might be useful to do some coaching on cell phones and pictures. If you have a teen that is driving, you can check Account Activity to make sure the phone is not being used while your teen is driving.
Good luck with back to school!

Originally developed by first responders in the UK, In Case of Emergency – ICE – is a system whereby people program their cell phones with “In Case of Emergency” contact information that first responders (and others) can use. A great article on this was published recently in the Cookeville Times – “Cell Phones Keep Kids Safe“.
Back to school is a great time to program your child’s phone with ICE contacts. In the “name” field on the contact list in the phone, enter ICE plus the name of the person (ICE Mom, ICE Dad, ICE Grandma, etc.). Come to think of it – perhaps we should all program our phones with ICE contacts!
