iParenting: There's an App for That!
Cell phones are used mainly as social tools for older children and teens. When your kids start getting out into the world and spending more time with their friends, you're likely to have concerns about safety. In recent years, some parents have decided to track their teens through GPS applications without the teen's knowledge. While some parents find this works for them, alternative methods exist.
The iphone offers some incredible tools to help you stay connected with your kids when they're out and about and to help teach them to make good choices.
The iCurfew app enables teens to send parents their location information. This way mom and dad can be sure their child is where they say they are and can come get them if they need to be picked up.
Positive Discipline Tools For Teens is an app that gives parents access to quick tips for smart ways to handle your teenager's moods and behavior. The tools focus on positive reinforcement and non-punishment strategies that encourage teens to develop personal responsibility.
