When you're partaking in prom night activities, sometimes a rude cellphone call can break the mood. But how about sending friendly reminders to not drink and drive to that promming teen? Not only will you most likely get a teen's attention using a preferred method of communication, but they may actually pay attention to that parental concern over SMS
. Everyone wants to emerge from prom night in good order, right? The Century Council is sponsoring a program, now in its second year, for registering a teen's phone online so that they automatically receive a friendly reminder to stay away from the spirits come prom night. The CTIA's on board with the initiative, and so are we; frankly, we'd like to see carriers pick up on this and make the texts free.
