I am always worried about the whereabouts of my children. To keep them safe and make sure they can always get a hold of me are my priorities. When prices on phones became realistic I immediately purchased one for my little girl Liz who’s 12 years old. Although giving my daughter a mobile phone has enabled me to be in contact with her whenever I want, I realized that this tool can also be used by stalkers and unscrupulous individuals to get in contact with my child. Watching the news about sexual predators and “sexting”, which is sending or passing semi-nude or nude photos via text messaging, has really made me doubt whether it is safe for my kid to have a cell phone with her at all times. Some teenagers are unaware that sending nude pictures or texting with strangers can be really dangerous. I really wanted to monitor text messages being sent to and from my daughters phone.
It is really a blessing when a fellow parent told me about My Mobile Watchdog. So I immediately checked out Bob Lotter’s website to see how he could protect my child. Keeping Liz safe and making sure she doesn’t do anything that can lead to further danger is what I plan to do. I just heard on the news that Liz’s favorite actress had even more nude photos released of her on the Internet. By monitoring my kids text messages I will be able to insure that this does not happen to her.
Looking at all the great features on My Mobile Watchdog and talking to other Moms convinced me that this is one of the best ways of monitoring text messages. I also like that I can afford this product and that is so easy to use. I am not Internet or computer savvy so I was scared this was something I would not be able to figure out. The feature I like the most is the one that lets me create my daughters contact list and I can check it when ever I want.
At first, my daughter was really mad at me for setting up My Mobile Watchdog. Feeling like I did not trust her she was very hurt that I was spying on her. After I told her why and that it is to keep her safe she understood. She really started to realize monitoring text messages was really important because one of her friends was sexting. Now that poor girl has pictures of her half naked body all over the Internet.
