When it comes to the first moments of the children, parents usually just remember the ones that happened early on in their lives, like the first steps, or the first words. Parents do not usually keep track of other firsts like the first smartphone that they buy for their kids, which it turns out plays an important role in today’s times.

With a vast amount of information that becomes accessible to the kids when they own a smartphone, it comes down to the parents to protect their child’s innocence from the big, bad world. It also becomes a scary aspect for the parents to give their children a smartphone; being scared of who their kid is talking to or what they are watching on their smartphones.

A parent cannot constantly look over his or her child’s shoulder to keep track of what the child is doing on the smartphone. However, the parents can tech-up and keep track in other ways. The most popular platforms for smartphones are iOS and Android and both of them provide ways to restrict usage and parental controls.

Parents can turn on the restrictions and parental controls on their child’s smartphone or even go a step further and mirror the downloads onto their own phones. This would let the parents see whatever their child is doing on his or her smartphone. Parents can also view the histories of the applications that their child downloads on his or her smartphone.

The other option is to go low-tech and develop a level of trust with their kids that will go a long way than just the phone usage. If the child starts trusting his or her parents with everything, it would stretch further into the teenage life of the child and the child will turn out to be an obedient one rather than a rebel.
