We were awarded custody of our niece when her father went to jail, and I have been trying to keep track of my brother as best as I can. I knew that I could use Securus to talk to mt brother, but I also wanted to be able to use it to help him stay close to his daughter. The jail is two states away, and that means we would not be able to go there. We put the Securus app on our phones, and we got to work on a plan.
Our niece comes home from school every day, and my wife is there waiting there for her with the app on her phone. Our niece sits down to work on her homework as soon as she gets home, and the app is ready to go to have my brother on the other end. They get to talk about the homework, and then my wife follows up when they are done. It is a really sweet time with the two of them, and my wife is right there to make sure that it works right every time.
I am impressed with Securus because I know how well it works. It is really a big new revelation for our family because I thought we would just be sitting in silence with our niece until my brother gets out of jail. I was dreading having to explain this to her, and now we do not have to worry about that.
We are using Securus nearly every day to make sure that we all stay in touch with family. We have not been able to drive out to the jail yet, but we do not need to with Securus. Homework time every day is nice to see, and I appreciate the marketing that Securus has done about these simple life moments.
