The cellphones in the hands of your children are no less than little bombshells that may explode anytime; you got to watch out the kids whether they are really safe. Just a slice of precaution and pinch of alertness can indeed do wonders for your child’s safety and in soothing your burdened-up mind.
Some parents chicken out of the mobile buying plans for their kids which isn’t a very practical thing to do but the major reason behind this is the countless paedophiles pretty actively misusing the innocence of the children around either through mobile or via internet chat rooms or just any other convenient way available to them.
Sadly, mobile is the most popular little thing among the sexual predators but then one can’t deprive their children of technical advancement and freedom to know the world around through techie devices, especially the mobile phones the soul of the era. But as a responsible parent you got to keep sexual predators off your children’s phones.
Talk to your Service Providers to Restrict Usage
Several service providers offer to restrict the usage by limiting their features like the user won’t get to send MMS, internet usage will be limited or time bound, downloading will be blocked, etc. By talking to your service provider you can restrict the mobile usage of your child and keep him safe from getting involved in sexting, or explicit MMS sending as well as downloading explicit pictures, etc. On demanding your service provider will also provide you with all the details of the calls and text which will further help you in having better idea about your child’s mobile usage.
Use Mobile Parental Control for Child Safety.
At some places you may find the service providers to be not so effective in getting the usage restricted, this is where the mobile parental control programs prove helpful. And especially when you got to protect kids from sexual predators on mobile, there just can’t be any substitute for such programs.
You don’t just get the details of your kids’ mobile usage but also get the total command over their mobile. So you know what numbers are on the phone book and can even delete or black-list them, know about all the calls, text & email messages, etc.
Mobile monitoring also lets you know where your child is with geographical positioning system tracking features. All those sites that you suspect to be making your kid vulnerable to online paedophiles can be blocked and application usage can be kept well under control.
Just be cautious, talk to the service provider, install monitoring software and protect your child from those demon-like sexual predators on mobile phone waiting to prey upon your innocent child.
