Their cell phone will tell you what they won’t
When your child asks for their own phone, it’s almost impossible to say no. It’s a great way to keep tabs while allowing them some independence. But concerns about cyber bullying, phone addiction, online predators and “sexting” are ever present dangers which should make every parent think carefully about how to balance safety with online access.
You can end the anxiety and let them be a part of their friends’ social networking. Just install SpyHide on your child’s mobile phone and you’ll never again have to guess what they’re up to and who they meet.
