ACMA: Mobile, friend or foe? ACMA urges parents to talk about phones

The Australian Communications and Media Authority is urging parents to check mobile phones are kid safe before they go back to school.
'With young people going back to school, mobile phones can be a great way for parents to keep in touch, but a few simple steps can help ensure the phone isn't going to cause more problems than its solves,' said Chris Chapman, ACMA Chairman.
'It's important that young people protect their mobile phone number and only give it to trusted friends and family. It's also important that they don't respond to text or calls from people they don't know,' Mr Chapman said.
