2. Make sure you know about all the parental controls that you can apply on your child’s phone; the most common ones include filtering explicit content, blocking the purchases of ringtones, graphics, and online games.

3. Keep a check on the cell phone; Install spy software such as Own Spy, the software allows you to spy on your child’s phone. Own Spy allows you to check all the activities of your child, from messages to whatsapp messages, gallery, music and pictures.
