Common Sense Media: Parents' Guide to Kids and Cell Phones

How do I keep tabs on my kids' cell phone use without seeming intrusive?

Some parents say, "If I'm paying for it, I'm entitled to read my kids' texts, check their call log, and know who their buddies are." That's valid, but kids consider these devices to be as personal as diaries, so tread cautiously. Spot checks are a good idea. You know your kid best. If you sense something isn't right, spot check more often. Explain that your rules are for their safety and protection and that you need to be able to make sure they're using their devices appropriately. — Common Sense Media
