The mere thought of raising a teenager throws even the most well-planned parents into panic. No amount of preparedness looks good enough when parents are about to see their children transform into teenagers. Since the thinking and acting of teens are mostly irrational, there are many instances where teenagers make bad decisions. Same goes with their choice of friends which in turn, can become a bad influence on their personality.
Parental control is, by far, the proven method of ensuring that your child is not affected by bad company. Providing your teenager with a cell phone with spy app installed on it, solves the problem. Here are 4 ways to reduce the bad influence of friends on your teenager:
Monitor Phone Calls and Text Messages:
With a cell phone spy app, you are able to manage calls and messages along with all the related details. Since most of the teenagers coordinate their activities with short messages and calls, you will be able to identify the close buddies of your teenager along with their planned activities. Call and message logging is real-time so even deleted calls and messages get logged to your web account. It is covert so you don’t lose the trust of your child.
Check Contact List:
The spy software allows you to inspect the address book on the cell phone. If you can quickly relate the contact title to a real person, you can be sure that your teenager is safe from any bad influence from his or her peer group. However if you see weird names (like “boxer”, “Marmalade”, “postman”), it is time that you look closely at the associates of your child.
Turn on Audio Stream and Surround Recording:
The spy software comes with Spy Call and Surround Recording options. These options are so powerful that they convert the cell phone into a surveillance device. You can turn on the microphone of the cell phone to listen to the audio stream of the environment. You can even record the surroundings. Now you have the power to know whether your teenager is partying, clubbing, or studying with his friends!
Check Physical Location:
The spy software features location tracking with Google Maps. You can precisely know where your teenager is hanging around. Is he reaching the school on time? Is he getting home on time? In short, he remains under your constant surveillance at all times.
Parental control is the only remedy of teenage problems. It helps you minimize the bad influence on your teenager, keeps him focused on life goals, and in turn keeps you happy.
