Phone loving kids of the day hardly spend any time with their family and even when their family is around, they keep striking the keypads of their phones. Sometimes it appears as if one day the whole world will turn into a vacuum with all humans stick to their cell phones never to leave it ever!

If you feel the same, it is time to check what your child is doing with her cell phone all the time and what exactly is so great about it that she is completely obsessed about it!!

Talks for countless number of hours

Teens talk on phones for really long hours, they may not talk face to face but they just love it when they are behind their cell phones. They’ll have all sorts of things on their head that they need to talk about and if they’ll not speak it out, they’ll probably get stifled of it. Or it is a recent gossip! Ah man what a story it’s got to be shared, spoken of, and told to all, or the “stifling” feeling won’t go.

This uses up all the available minutes and then they over spend. What about the things out of the cell phone? Teens just don’t handle anything out of the cell phones anymore.

Texts beyond limit

Every plan has its limited number of text messages, but talkative kids try summing up everything in a text message and when just one or two message isn’t sufficient to sum up all and there starts a long conversation texting with hundreds of text messages shot in minutes which end up all the available text messages for the month. And when texting goes beyond limit, your budget surely gets messed up.

Secret visits to adult sites

This is the most awful thing on earth to expect your child to do but sadly most teens are busy doing this. They visit adult sites, watch pornographic videos, pose as adult on adult forums and chat-rooms to befriend other adults. Wondering why do teens do this?

One, their hormones are almost drowning them. Two, teens want to feel cool and doing things considered as inappropriate makes them feel cool. Three, they feel like adult, doing things that adults do give them power.

But it can be dangerous; this is what you’re thinking? Yes, it is dangerous and yes you’re right.

What if predators take advantage of the adolescent innocence of the kid?

Sharing awful pictures online

Kids love sharing pictures online but things take wrong shape when their pictures offer something they shouldn’t be making public. And when these pictures are ill-used by others, kids are in real trouble. A foolish picture clicked for fun posted on a social networking site can be a great material for a bully to harass your child, and if it is in appropriate in nature it will serve the criminals well for extorting money out of your teen.

How will you know if your child in getting involved in all these troublesome activities through her phone?

Monitor your child’s mobile to know what’s happening on it. Check your child’s phone manually once in a while and if it doesn’t appear that justified, install cell phone monitoring software on it and check every activity that your child participates in whether it is calling, text messaging, Internet surfing, or downloading things.

When you’ll keep an eye on your child’s her cell phone, you’ll get to know what things your child do and ensure that your child isn’t getting into any kind of trouble.

This will prove helpful in keeping your child safe and avoid dangerous consequences. Some of the advanced monitoring systems also offer blocking certain features like chatting apps, particular sites, and even downloading. You even get to locate your child’s location through GPS tracking.
