“Mobile technology offers a definite advantage for families and children, but it’s extremely important for parents to set limitations and know how their children use the technology, for their child’s safety,” said Tom Nix, data sales consultant for Verizon Wireless “Fortunately, Verizon can point parents to numerous tools and apps that offer parents some peace of mind, while still allowing children to use a smartphone or tablet for the right purposes, regardless of how old their child is.”
Parents will leave the class equipped with implementable tips and tools to help manage their children’s wireless devices.
