Understanding Why Texting and Driving is Dangerous

Technology has taken great strides over the past few decades. We went from having rather large cell phones to having ones that can literally fit into your pocket. Along with these advancements in technology has come a great way to communicate with our friends and family. Gone are the days of having to pick up a phone to communicate with someone. Nowadays, we can video call, text message, and email. Unfortunately many teen drivers get behind the wheel of a car and don’t respect the road or the vehicle. Instead, they choose to text and drive, and this leads to many deaths each year. It’s important that your teen not become another statistic. Here’s a quick look at making sure your teen isn’t texting and driving.

Set the phone to driving mode

Most newer smartphones come with the ability to put it in driving mode. You should make sure it’s always turned on because it limits what your teen driver can do on the phone when traveling in a car. From not allowing text messaging to delaying incoming emails, driving mode can literally save your child’s life. 

Set up voice control 

Most newer cars come with the ability to make phone calls and send text messages and emails with the push of a button on the steering wheel. Keeping this in mind, if your teen is driving a newer car, make sure that you set it up so that your child can use the voice commands to send and receive phone calls and text messages.

Summertime Heat: How To Care For Your Pets

You love your pets and that is why it’s important to care for them, especially during the summer months. The heat can be difficult for anyone to deal with, and pets will need your help since they cannot care for themselves.

When you are in Ada, you may want to do all sorts of different things with your pets, especially during the summertime. If you go boating, be sure to get them into a life vest, even if they are good swimmers. If you go out, take them into the store with you or leave them at home – never leave them in a parked car.

Give them access to lots of water. If you are not going to be home for a significant part of the day, be sure to leave them extra water so that they don’t run out. One of the biggest problems with dogs and cats is that they become dehydrated and overheat easier. You can solve this simply by making sure that they have lots of water to drink. If you take them anywhere, remember to bring water with you so that they have access to it.

Concrete can heat up, and this can cause problems for the pads on your pet’s paws. The good news is that they make special pad protection products that can be applied to your pet’s paws when you go outside. This includes adhesive pads as well as booties. Just choose something that your pet won’t mind keeping on, and that is sized for the breed.
