Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2013 -- When you give your child a smartphone, you give them the world. That world can come with a lot of fun and education. But it also comes with a lot of risk. The possibilities are endless, but so are the dangers to your children when they immerse themselves in the online environment.
At the same time, when you send your child out into the world today you no longer have to worry about where they are. Technology allows parents to monitor their children's locations with smartphone apps and GPS technology.
Today, there are many free and premium apps on the Google Play store designed to help parents monitor their children's online behavior and physical locations. How do you choose the right app for your family’s Android devices? How do you prevent kids from downloading the wrong apps or media? Which apps will let you know where your child is at any given moment of the day? Which apps help you know when your child is being cyberbullied?
To help parents identify and understand the features of some of the most popular parental control apps available on the Google Play store, the team at MamaBear posted a blog identifying and describing six of their preferred apps.
"Technology can create greater risks for our kids, but thankfully it also provides parents many resources to aid them in keeping their kids safe," said MamaBear president Robyn Spoto, a bona fide MamaBear with two curious, active boys of her own. “We want to help parents make informed decisions about which parental control apps best suit their needs." - Robyn Spoto, MamaBear App
