Your Child’s Smartphone Has Replaced the TV, Computer, Phone, Game Station, and more. Today’s smartphones are powerful computers with fast internet access that connects kids to the world outside of your comfort zone. Your child’s phone is one of the most important things in their life. It’s the connection to their friends, videos, music, games, internet, and family. Without an advanced parental control app you are relying on your child to decide what is appropriate to search, download, view, and who is OK to talk to.
