i worry about picture messages
Jessie C. says
I am most concerned about privacy issues and unknown calls.
I also worry about pictures, and sending them. I also worry about other people taking mobile phone pictures and sending them. I’ve caught a few people taking pictures of my daughter once or twice, and it really makes me uncomfortable.
Harmony B says
My safety concern is texting and being distracted ( i.e driving, walking) Ive seen people walk into traffic while texting, scary
Paul L says
I am most concerned about texting and driving which is as dangerous as driving while under influence.
Kelly D says
I am concerned about unwanted communication & privacy issues with my children
Mary Happymommy says
I’m considered about privacy and identity theft.
I meant “concerned”, not “considered”. It’s early in the morning.
I am concerned about my daughter texting while driving
I’m concerned about driving on the road with other drivers that are messing with their phones.They swerve all over like they’re driving drunk.I’ve also had people step right in front of my car and they never notice they did it! They don’t look up at all! In general, people are too attached to the immediacy of communication today, like everything needs to be answered NOW! My 10 yo and I discuss this on a regular basis.
Ashley Hatten says
I worry about texting while driving
I am worried about other people getting my children’s personal information. I also worry about pictures.
Denise Schurr says
I worry about search engines and videos that can pop up randomly, once it’s in their head it’s always there!
I am concerned about privacy issues
I’m concerned about inappropriate photos and messaging-
I am most concerned with access to adult sites.
I’m worried about my loved ones being in accidents because other people are texting while driving.

Leslie M.P. says
I, too, worry about other drivers swerving all over the road because they are messing with their cell phones. We’ve seen two near misses with someone on a two-way hwy crossing the line.
Thomas Murphy says
I am concerned about texting and driving.
Ashley H says
I’m concerned about privacy.
Karen Doyle says
I am most concerned with drivers texting while driving or holding a cellphone to their ear and driving one handed. Use an earpiece or car speaker phone. Wait until you get to your destination or pull over to text.
Jessica F says
definitely worried about texting while driving the most! Today I saw a city bus driver not realize his light was green because he was looking at his phone!
Shanna Atteberry says
I’m most concerned about bullying via cell phone because my teen daughter is very quiet and would keep it to herself and I’d never know.
I’m concerned with the amount of distractions we allow, preventing us from driving responsibly. Driving while texting, your eyes and your mind are not focused on driving.
