Don’t worry, parents. With the world we live in today, there is nothing to be ashamed about when it comes to the protection and whereabouts of your kids. If you feel like you are overprotective, the news gives us reasons to be paranoid daily because of the crazy, violent things that seem to be constantly around us. But one really cool thing about this progression in technology is that there are some incredibly useful tools out there that are for more than just entertainment and pleasure. So for all the tentative parents, have no fear! Check out some of the apps below that will help keep you clued in to the world of your children.
This app is the number one used tracking app for phones today, and you can do so much more than just GPS tracking with this useful phone application.

This app will most definitely help you get the proof you need for that, and so much more.
2. Lassy Project
Think of this as upgrade from the typical Amber Alert.

3. The Phone Sheriff
This is the perfect app for parents who want to limit their child or teen’s screen time.

The Phone Sheriff will literally shut down and lock your kid’s phone after the specific amount of time you have previously set for it to turn off. So a half hour of screen time can really mean a half hour of screen time!
