It's hard to be a kid! When trouble strikes, kids now have a way to get the word out to their parents in a timely manner.
According to People Magazine, a father of three, recently devised a plan to help his kids whenever they are in an uncomfortable or dangerous situation.
The idea is called the "X-Plan," and encourages kids to send a simple text with the letter "X" to alert their parents that they need help.
As a teen, the father experienced a lot of peer pressure but had no way to escape the situation he was in. Fast-forward to today, parents have the ability to use modern technology to their advantage.
Will you implement Plan-X with your children, or have you already implemented a similar concept in your home?
