Fact: 43% of teens have texted while driving in the past three months.

Fact: One of the main reasons parents call their kids is to check up on their location.

Fact: 64% of teens text during class.

 

These days, kids are getting cellphones as young as 8-years old. If you’ve been thinking about getting your child their first cellphone I’m sure you’ve thought about all the potential problems it might cause—I know the stats I listed above are just the tip of the iceberg.

Our main goal at Safely is to help parents like you use technology to help keep your kids safe without having to worry about it distracting them in class or while they’re driving. That’s why we made Sprint Guardian, which lets parents get the Sprint versions of Family LocatorDrive and Phone Controls for one price.

Sprint Guardian is launching soon. If you want to find out more in the meantime, check out this video:
