Cell Phones For Kids

Kajeet, the safest cell phone service for "tweens" and teens has won its third parenting award, the iParenting Media Excellence Award in the safety category.

Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) June 30, 2009: kajeet™ (www.kajeet.com), the safest cell phone service for kids and the only cell phone carrier in the U.S. that has ever won a parenting award, has won the iParenting Media Award for 2009 Excellent Products in the Safety category. It is the third parenting award kajeet has won in the last eight months. Kajeet makes communicating with a cell phone safe for “tweens” and teens because its phones feature a wide variety of free parental controls that can be set to block calls, picture messaging, and text messaging based on parental decisions. The kajeet parental controls let parents determine when, how and how much the phones can be used by their children.

Three judges--including a licensed childcare facility/school, a product expert and a parent--tried and reviewed the kajeet phones and service. “Kajeet does a great job of giving kids the feelings of self-confidence and respect that come with owning a cell phone,” said one iParenting Media Awards Reviewer. “It also helps parents feel safe and in control, because they can give their kids as much or as little freedom they need.”

“This product is a great way to give parents peace of mind knowing that they can access their children when necessary,” said another iParenting Media Awards Reviewer. “It also allows children to contact their parents in case of an emergency.”

“My favorite feature is the time-out blocks. They allow me to control what hours the phone can be used by my children, but still allow them access to us, their parents, in case of an emergency,” said the third iParenting Media Awards Reviewer.

In addition to these outside reviewers, kajeet was evaluated by the iParenting Media Awards Executive Committee, which confirmed that kajeet is now considered one of iParenting’s award-winning vendors.
