Who They Mix-up With?
The biggest concern for parents when their children reach teenage is the company they keep and the friends they hang out with. As your teens won’t be able to quite well understand the threats they’re exposed to , it’s better to keep a check on their friend circle. You can check all the contacts in their phones from your own FamilyTime and can Watchlist the ones you want to keep tabs on. Next time if your child tries to contact that number, you will get instant alert.
Never Forget When to Pick up Children
Who can blame you when you’re so stuck at home or work and totally forget to pick up your child from his soccer practice or your daughter from her friend’s?

You can also check the apps they have installed in their phones. If you see too many dating apps and VPN apps, you should better have a word with them.
Reduce their Mobile Phone Usage
Excessive screen time not only damages their eyes but also affects their attention span. And if it’s their exam season, all the social media apps can distract them and keep them off their books. Late night browsing is another problem that is causing insomnia and sleep deprivation among teens.

They can become introvert and socially awkward and parents need to stop this. FamilyTime comes to rescue with its most innovative screen time locks.
