I have done some things that I am not proud of in my past, and I just got out of jail for it. I know that it was not the best choice, but I was glad that Securus helped me out to do the homework with the kids over video. The video was really nice because I sat down for homework with my daughter every night. I know that this sounds kind of fanciful, but it really worked for our family.
I actually did not have a homework routine with my daughter before I went to jail, but I had one when it got set up on Securus. The video looked really good, and I actually felt like I was sitting at the table with my daughter to help her with some simple math problems. We talked for a few minutes, and then she would go to bed every night. We did this pretty regularly until I got out, and now we do this every night.
I think that it was very smart of Securus to show that they can bring people together for a lot of different life events. They do have very secure calls, but I was not thinking about that at the time. I was thinking about how I would be able to talk to my daughter the next night.
Homework was the big thing that we did every night, but I got a lot of life out of the video calls we made. All it took with a cell phone and the app.
