Junior got caught texting once too often in his math class and his father was not pleased. He didn't want to take the phone away as he wanted Junior to keep to be able to keep in touch. Torn between the technology of the 21st century and the discipline he knew his son needed, dad called the phone company and asked for help. The company suggested parental controls which would block texting during school hours. Dad said yes! Grades improved. Phone calls home stopped.
I never knew something like this was possible. I wonder if others don't know as well. Might be a good idea for schools to let parents know this option is available.
