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.
