Protecting Your Kids Better With MMGuardian

21 Aug

Do you ever stay up at night wondering whether your child is safe on their cell phone?

Sadly, you should: cell phones are amazing tools but they can also become dangerous environments for kids who become victims of cyber-bullying.

And, most of the time, you will never know about it.

Unless you take action and put MMGuardian on your child’s phone.  

MMGuardian prevents cyber-bullying by alerting you to bullying texts messages sent to your child.  You choose the words you are worried about and MMGuardian lets you know if those words ever come up in your child’s phone conversations.

For example, if you spend your nights worrying that your child will be bullied over their weight, tell MMGuardian to monitor the word “fat” and you will have peace of mind knowing your child is safe.

MMGuardian Parental Control Stops Your Child From Texting While Driving

6 Aug

If you’ve driven recently, you might have spied a frightening sight: a teenager behind the wheel, furiously texting, barely glancing at the wheel.  That teen is 23x more likely to get into a traffic accident.

Texting while driving is the worst danger to teens on the road and MMGuardian Parental Control can help you keep your teen safe.

What makes texting while driving so unsafe is that it keeps the drivers’ eyes off the road for longer periods than any other activity.  It slows and impairs decision making, leading to astronomically higher chances of an accident.

If you are not worried yet, take a look at these statistics from legal firm Edgar Snyder & Associates:

    • Approximately 86% of drivers said they ate or drank while driving at some point, and 57% said they do it “sometimes” or “often.”
    • Over 1/3 of drivers (37%) have sent or received text messages while driving, and 18% said they do it regularly.
    • Forty-one percent of adult drivers have set or changed a GPS system while driving, and 21% do it “more frequently.”
    • Many adult drivers (36%) have read a map while driving, and 10% do it “sometimes” or “often.”
    • One in five drivers have combed or styled his or her hair while driving. One in ten does it regularly.
    • Have you ever seen a driver putting on makeup? Approximately 14% have done it once, and 7% do it frequently.
    • About 13% of adult drivers have surfed the Internet while driving.
    • Results of the poll showed that younger drivers were more likely to engage in distracted driving. Men were more likely to drive while drowsy, drive after drinking, read a map, use a GPS system, and use the Internet.
    • A large percentage of the people said they know distracted driving is dangerous, but do it anyway.

Knowing that, you must want to start protecting your teen right now.  Try MMGuardian Parental Control because it automatically shuts off your child’s ability to text while driving by locking the phone while they are operating the car.

Man’s ‘Last Text’ Before Car Crash Says It All!

3 Aug

Such a sad but also extremely educational story, it just had to be reblogged

99.5 WYCD Detroit's Best Country

Even though it is against the law, even though we have all been warned….people do still text and drive. A college student from Texas believes he is lucky to be alive after a terrible crash. He was texting and driving when his truck flew off of a cliff. Chance Bothe’s truck plunged off of a bridge and into a ravine. and one of the last things he typed indicated what almost happened to him. He wrote, “I need to quit texting, because I could die in a car accident.”  It really is a miracle that Chance survived….

After the crash, Chance had a broken neck, a crushed face, a fractured skull, and traumatic brain injuries. Doctors had to bring him back to life three times . Now, 6 months later, he’s finally able to talk about what happened. This is one of those times when you have to watch…

5 Ways For Parents to Fight Cyberbullying

2 Aug

If you didn’t already know, your child could be a victim of cyberbullying.  Right now.  You need a tool like MMGuardian Parental Control to pr

If you doubt that, just put some facts together:

  • Over 50% of American preteens, teens, and young adults are victims of online or mobile bullying.
  • The average American family has two children

Chances are, one of your children is being victimized in some way.  And, if they are like 90% of victimized teens, they won’t ever tell you about it.

So, the question is, what can you do?  Here are five strategies to combat cyberbullying and protect your kids:

  • Start a Dialogue: Your kids don’t tell you because they are ashamed.  Let them know it’s ok to talk to you about anything, even if they are embarrassed.
  • Believe Them: Many kids fear they will not be believed, so they don’t tell people about the bullying.  Let them know that you will support them and, if they tell you, help stop the bullying.
  • Show Action: If your child sends you signal, don’t ignore them and wait.  Probe a bit deeper and see what they tell you, you may be surprised.
  • Show That You Care: You know that you care but teens often feel disconnected and estranged from their parents.  Make sure your child feels a strong enough connection to come to you.

BUT, sometimes talking and dialogue do not work.  In those cases, take matters into your own hands and use a software tool to keep your kids safe. The best, FREE option available is MMGuardian Parental Control.
