As a parent, I try to keep on the lookout for new sites for kids that look interesting. I just came across an excellent one, SheHeroes. Their short videos on accomplished women role models are very well done.
I wasted no time sending this link to my 12-year-old daughter. I thought others might like to know about it, too. Nice work, SheHeroes!

Justin Bieber’s mother apparently canceled the teen pop star’s cell phone service as punishment for an argument the two had while on tour. – AOL Music
Dear Ms. Patricia Bieber,
We just heard the news that you recently cancelled your son’s cell phone service because of an argument between the two of you. As parents ourselves, we applaud you! It is refreshing to see that even world famous teen pop stars need to listen to their mother and not misbehave! Good call with targeting his cell phone too. In today’s technology-focused world, cell phones are a great tool to teach responsibility and consequences. Taking away cell phone service for any teenager is rough on them, as Justin probably discovered. But hey, even with a son as successful and well-behaved as yours, Mom is still the boss!
If you have not previously heard of us, we are kajeet® – the safest cell phone service for kids. In short, we are a flexible and affordable cell phone service, with free unlimited parental controls, that give parents the ability to teach their teens and tweens to use cell phones in a safe, responsible manner. Our parental controls allows caring parents, like yourself, to limit the content their kids can access, determine when the phone may be used, and restrict who can call or text in and out. We feel like our service can really help you because our service makes it easy for you to manage his cell phone use without having to cancel any plan entirely. Specifically, you can set up our parental controls (all online!) to allow only a few important phone numbers from people you trust to reach Justin’s cell phone. This means you can still flex your mom muscle with Justin but still make him available to yourself and his mentor, Usher, at all times. It is always nice to know that your son or daughter is only a phone call away. And we must admit, we don’t want Justin to miss out on the chance to learn new dance moves from Usher!
We thank you for being such a good role-model for caring parents around the world. It is truly inspiring to see you raise Justin so strongly in front of our eyes. We think every parent should learn about our cell phone service and decide on their own whether or not it is right for them. You can view our feature demo here to learn more about us. We wish you and Justin the best of luck in the future.
