Are you worried that your teenager is "sexting" (sending sexually explicit photos via phone)? Do you fear your child is being bullied online?
These apps let you read your child's texts, view his or her photos, receive notifications when your child "checks in" somewhere with friends, gets tagged in a photo online, and is the recipient of bad language or bullying. There is also a GPS function that lets you track your child's whereabouts. You can also block apps, limit the amount of time your child can use his or her phone, and more. (Photo: iStockphoto.com)
