"i prefer an approach where you make it absolutely clear to the young person what you're doing. if you're going to carry around something like a cell phone, i need to be able to know how you're using it and make sure you're using it responsibly and that's reasonable contract to enter into with kids." for 15 year old morgan madden, life looks a lot different now thanks to tracking apps. she's following her passion - she says - all because her parents snuck the tracking app on her phone. 1:23-1:30 morgan madden/parent s use tracking app "15:15 i was like what the hell, like why are you doing this. why can't you trust me you know?" she says she was hanging out with people her parents thought might get her into trouble and admits lying to

"i think the best way to do it is to sit down and have a conversation and that way they don't feel like they are being followed. we ended up having an agreement and a contract that if she removed it from her phone then she lost her phone."free apps like "find my friends" just show you the current location of your child's phone. but others...like life 360...provide incredible detail. history of where your teenager has driven, how fast they drove to get their- even how much battery is remaining on their phone. in society today you don't know what's going to happen. it's sort of a mental and emotional security blanket for us. and a reality of modern parenting. 20:14 "we'll never get to the point where teenagers are going to tell their parents everything they're doing. and we shouldn't be there. ---- technology should not be a substitute for the hard work of being a good parent in the
