The recent incident of the 13-year-old girl who's mobile phone burst into flames under her pillow while she was sleeping, brings up the need for parents to follow the Guidelines for Parents: Electronic Devices, published by Pro Consumer Safety.
While this incident warns of using unauthorized accessories for smartphones, this also shows parents why it is important to set rules for use among older children and younger teens with electronic devices. To assist parents in establishing and practicing rules for their children, earlier this summer Pro Consumer Safety issued new guidelines for parents on the use of electronic devices for older children and teens. These guidelines help to reduce the potential injury risks among children and teens from the use of electronic devices.
Pro Consumer Safety advises the parents of older children and younger teens to follow the recently released guidelines. These guidelines are available for download and distribution.
