He can also dial emergency numbers from his mobile phone even if his phone calling services are temporarily held because nowadays all the telecom service providers give this features to their customers.
Convenient to communicate
If your teen has gone to study tour along with his school mates then you can contact him sporadically to know whether he is doing well or not.
Similarly, your teen might request you to allow him to attend his best friend’s birthday party at night and you might feel hesitant to give him permission because you doubt that he would get involved in drinking, smoking or sexual activity.
But if he has a mobile phone then you can permit him to enjoy the party by putting a simple condition that he would have to call you at regular intervals and inform about his activities.
You can also cross-check about your teen’s activities by calling any of friend’s in the same party.
When your teen will get the mobile phone for the first time, he will feel elated because he would now be able to show his friends that he too got this fashionable device.
But if you will teach him the proper use of mobile and not to waste his time by talking for hours with his friend through cell phone and not to play games and access internet on it just for fun purpose then he would understand the responsibility of keeping a handset.
Tell your teen that you will take back his cell phone if he will misuse it.
