I love getting notes from kajeet parents and, where they approve, thought I’d start posting some of them here for others to share.    Here is a note we received from a recent customer about her experience with kajeet:

“I hope this will get into the right department. I want to thank you for such a wonderful service that you provide. I have seen your ads for a long time, but it appeared that your services were geared more for small children. I responded to a search for unlimited texting, and kajeet came up. I soon discovered that the phones are appealing to kids of all ages, even my fussy teen, and the parental controls are a god send. We have been customers for a little less than a month, but I am so happy with the ease of use, and full protection I am getting. Thank you thank you thank you! I am so happy that my teenage daughter and I can both agree on one phone and service. I have been telling all of my friends about you. Please keep up the good work. You have ended one big point of contention and worry in our house. Thank you again. I hope your company lives long, and prospers. You are doing a very good thing, and you may even save a life, by making them safer.”  We received this mail from Rhonda, a kajeet parent.

Thanks for your feedback Rhonda, and thank you for being a kajeet customer.  Please continue to tell us when we are doing things right and when we make mistakes.  Your feedback helps us to improve our service – and feedback like this makes the entire kajeet team feel great about the work we are doing!

6,473 Texts a Month!

The Washington Post recently wrote a fascinating article discussing kids and texting.  It included some interesting points of view on whether the current texting phenomenon is negatively impacting the social and educational development, and family life, of today’s kids.  There were several reasonable expert sources pointing out the benefits texting can have in keeping kids and families socially connected.

Our experience at kajeet is that while parenting styles differ, virtually all parents believe the social, educational, and family connections their kids make are extremely important.  Some limit texting to accommodate these goals and others enable texting to accommodate them.  Even experts can’t agree on the topic so we should expect to see this kind of variation among parents.

I do think in 20 years we will all think about texting very differently than we do today.  Regardless,  I would also bet that virtually everyone might believe some level of moderation is a good idea.  For example, it would be great if both dinner and a nights sleep could be uninterrupted.

kajeet offers flexible parental controls that help parents set limits when rules alone might not work.  For example, TimeManager will block texts and calls at certain times of the day and night (both sent and received).  WalletManager provides usage limits so parents and kids can set a budget and kids can make choices on how much calling or texting to do – within the budgeted limits.

What’s your view on texting?  Do you see advantages to letting your kids text?  How much is too much?
