Parents need tools to check on teens

This is in response to Chuck Goudie’s article on teenage texting. Goudie says, “Once upon a time it was easy to eavesdrop on your teenagers and check their pockets or backpacks for incriminating notes.” Maybe. But it’s not too difficult to do some electronic eavesdropping.

Cell phone service providers often offer a plan for parents of teens in which it is remarkably easy to see whom your kid is texting or calling and at what hours.

Our plan allows us to turn our teen’s cell phone off for certain hours (let’s say, the middle of the night). Another tool is a calling circles plan, which allows unlimited calls only to certain numbers that your teen would pick – such as home, our cell phones, a few friends, and the significant other.
