Jane Lynch joins LG for Text Ed
In the videos, Lynch plays the role of a newly reformed "text offender" who was a self-professed texting fiend regularly engaged in mobile harassment, text rage, and other irresponsible behaviors. Lynch is busted by the police for texting while driving, and as part of her sentence, undergoes mobile rehab. Lynch re-enters society with a new-found zeal to help spread the word and LG enlists her to educate a group of uninformed parents about teen mobile misuse through a series of community service classes.
The LG Text Ed program, which was launched earlier this year, offers parents a number of articles, tips, videos, and other content so they can educate themselves on the dangers of mobile phone misuse; employ strategies to help protect their children from potential problems, and discover how they might be modeling their children's mobile phone behavior.Other LG Text Ed Advisory Council members include Rosalind Wiseman, best-selling author of Queen Bees and Wannabees (the basis for the 2004 hit film, Mean Girls); Dr. Charles Sophy, Medical Director for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, and author of Side by Side; and Dr. Joel Haber, a clinical psychologist and bully coach, and author of Bullyproof Your Child for Life.
