Maintain

As kids grow up and the wireless industry continues to develop new products and services, it’s important parents continually check the family’s service plans and control tools so they match kids’ maturity levels, ages and family rules.

In addition, it’s important parents and kids maintain a dialogue on what’s appropriate behavior and usage. By routinely having these conversations, parents can encourage their kids to use wireless responsibly.


Before the kids get their cellphones, parents want to know their kids are being responsible wireless users. How? CTIA and its members have identified three steps:

  1. Learn
