Smart Phone Monitoring Software for Parental Control Of Teens Cell Phone

If you have a son or daughter I willing to bet they have a cell phone.

As far as your son or daughter is concerned a cell phone...

  • Makes them hip.
  • Makes them cool.
  • Lets them keep in touch with their friends.

To a parent, their son or daughter having a cell phone means...

  • The parent can keep in touch with their kids at all times.

This article is not to bash the idea of kids or teens having a mobile phone because a mobile phone is fantastic technology and fantastically convenient for both the parent and the child BUT...

DANGERS OF CELL PHONES PARENTS NEED TO BE AWARE OF

There is a dark side to this technology you have to be aware of as a parent.

  • All cell phones have a built in web browser which means your child can visit ANY web site they want any time they want.
  • Sexting is a new trend among kids where teen girls send or post nude pictures of themselves online with out thought of future repercussions.
  • Cell phones can be used at inappropriate times, like when you son or daughter is suppose to be in school studying.
  • Cyber bullying is becoming prevalent.

The idea here is not to deny you child the use of or access to a cell phone but for YOU, as the parent, to be fully aware of everything they do with it and control their mobile IF necessary.

While there are tons of smart phone monitor applications for phones what you specifically want and need is one specifically designed for parental monitoring of their kids cell phone. These type of specialized tracking programs are different in that...

  • They allow you to block any phone numbers you specify from text messages and phone calls.
  • Block web sites or TYPES of web sites your kids can visit and have access to.
  • Disable their cell phone at specific, appropriate times, like when they are suppose to be in class for example.
  • Set other mobile restrictions as you deem necessary.

You don't want to make your teen or child feel like you don't trust them. Remember your job as a parent is to prepare your kids for life without you. If you are there guiding and controlling them every step of the way they never learn to internalize the process of self discipline.

Unfortunately the advanced tracking and monitoring features parental control software requires makes a remote phone spy out of the question.

The idea here is to just WATCH what your kids do with their cell phone and IF you see they need some discipline or guidance have a talk with them. If that does not do the trick then its time to use your smartphone parental software to go from just watching to controlling their cell phone usage.

Lets your kids become little adults on their own and only step in when you absolutely need to. Trust your kids and you may be surprised at just how smart they can be on their own!
