Free Software Give Away
Yes, it's true. Pandora Corporation wants to give away 50,000 copies of its parental control monitoring software. The give-away starts December 25th (at 12:01 a.m. ET) and lasts until January 1st or until all copies are distributed. Guess what I'll take time to do on Christmas Day! Based on what I've read, it's worthy, but best of all it's FREE. To read about how to get your free copy, visit here. And if you want a few more tips on how to order, go to this page on the Pandora's site. Click the order now button about midway down. There are a few other offers you can purchase. If you only want the free software offering, then make sure that's all you have checked. Then before proceeding to step one enter the Promo Code: PCPANDORAHOLIDAY. And you should be able to handle the rest. Need assistance? They are friendly folks and should be most helpful.

Cell Phones
Want to learn more about cell phones and how to monitor them, you have several options. The cell phones being offered by Leapfrog and others seem to be going away. Instead cell phone service providers are offering new and improved parental control services.

For example, AT&T offers Smart Limits and T-Mobile offers Family Allowances. If you have a different provider, contact them to see what they are currently offering. You might be pleasantly surprised!

Of all the options I of my favorite finds is a cell phone monitoring program called Radar. It's inexpensive ($4.95 for one child and $14.95 for a family plan). To find out more about the product visit: They have a limited 30-day free trial offer running now. Call them! They are very nice and will answer all your questions. :)

For a copy of a Cell Phone Parent/Child Agreement, visit another post on my blog. I suggest you copy and paste the material in a Word document. If you having trouble with formatting, please email me. I'll be glad to send you a copy of via email!
