Kids are always glued to their phones. Do you know what they are really up to? What are they looking at? What are they sharing? And how much time do they actually spend on their mobile devices? These days, there are several apps that help control what kids do and who they talk to while their phone is glued to their hand. Why not download one and give it a try?
iOS & Android
We all know that kids spend way too much time on their devices. That’s why with FamilyTime, it’s possible to lock kids’ phones at certain times to avoid them falling into the temptation of always looking at the screen. In addition, and because it’s not easy to know just who they’re talking to nowadays, the application allows you to monitor SMS and calls, as well as any links visited. It is also possible to block certain applications. What makes this application one of the most complete, however, is that it shows parents where their kids are when they’re not at home, leaving you in no doubt that they’re really at the library studying or hanging out at a friend’s house.

This app allows you to block your child’s phone every time you think they’ve been glued to the screen long enough. The best part is they can’t uninstall the app on the sly, since you are the administrator and are the only one who can authorise it.
Who has never called their children ceaselessly only to be completely ignored? How many messages sent without a response? For parents who are tired of being ignored (and worrying about their kids because of it), RespondASAP is the answer to their prayers. This application allows parents to send an urgent message and block their child’s phone until they get an answer. This way, kids will no longer ignore important calls or messages while continuing to use a game or social media.
