Keep Tabs on Your Child with New Cell Phone Applications

June 1, 2009 at 6:04 pm 2 comments

Now that cell phones have become a ubiquitous aspect of our society, it makes sense for parents to learn about ways that they can use them to help keep their children safe. Many cell phone providers now offer applications that let parents track the location and usage of their children’s phones. These application not only allow you to see if your child is at school when they are supposed to be, but they also let parents set limits on texting, hours of use, internet content, downloads, and more.

The Miami-Dade Herald just posted an interesting article on the subject, that I suggest reading for more information. Also, you can search individual cell phone service provider websites for specifics on what parental control and child safety applications they offer.
