Did your kids get a phone, a tablet or something similar for Christmas? No matter their age they are likely finding a way to chat and text with others. It’s scary and as a parent we have to keep our eyes open and ensure they are safe online. I have put together a list of Internet Terms and Acronyms that parents must know. Folks, protect your kids!
Did you know there are apps your kids can install on their phone that will delete their chats as soon as they send?
They can also install apps on their tablets that allow them to chat with anyone online, like Kik.
But, as a parent, there are also apps that allow you to see every text, image, browser search history, their GPS location, etc. It is called SMS Tracker.
There is also something called AppLock that allows you to put settings on their devices that allow zero app activity after a certain time (so at night when everyone is in bed).

Protect them. Preserve their childhood, parents!
I also suggest taking devises up at a certain time at night.
I suggest spot checks where your kids SEE you looking through their device. They are children living in your home…. they are NOT entitled to online privacy at all! Sorry, my house, my rules.
You cannot undo the things they see. Protect them from the start!!
