Text Messaging and Teens
How Much Are Your Kids Texting?
According to a Nielsen CVM, 2009 study, over 1,000 texts are sent/received by kids under age 12 every month, and the average teen texts well over 3,000 times monthly! Kajeet TimeManager & ContactManager help you keep your kid’s texting under control, and the texts your kid does send won’t break the bank thanks to our unlimited texting plans!
As a parent, you ultimately can decide if your kid is text messaging too much for your liking. Kajeet provides safety tips for kids and cell phones to help with texting, as well as other safety issues. Make sure you speak to your child or children about the dangers, as well as safety uses of a cell phone.
You can decide who they are allowed to text and if they are allowed to text at certain times of the day. For instance, Kajeet can help you establish only certain numbers can be texted with from 8 pm to 6 am.
Next to texting, picture messaging is the most popular kid phone feature. Our plans (starting at $19.99 and up) now feature unlimited picture messaging, too! If this is something that you may be concerned with, turning off picture messaging is easy as one click of the mouse with the Kajeet FeatureManager. (Source: Pew Internet Research Study, 2010)
