As the start of the school year approaches for many kids in the City of Malden, we want to start the school year off right. With that being said, we’re going to need some parents to learn how to monitor your child's cellphone use.
Little “Timmy” and Little “Becky” need to understand that YOU’RE the parent and YOU’RE in charge of what he or she does outside and inside (to a small degree) of school.
Little “Timmy” and “Becky” have the newest iPhone, that’s so awesome; we would be more impressed if you actually checked it once in a while to see what they’re doing with that new cool phone. They live under your roof, they follow YOUR rules, period.
I know some of you are going to say: “But they need space...” We say this to you, “It’s called parenting, and you should know everything that your child is doing.”
We encourage you all to research all of the different APPs children are using on cellphones to deceive you, particularly when it comes to whom they’re talking to, and what content they’re sending people; SEXTING is a serious problem.
Please, help us out this year. We seized way too many phones last year due to inappropriate behavior with sending and receiving text messages and content sent over social media.
Oh, and welcome back!
