Digital Parenting: Keep Tabs on Apps

Date Posted:  11/03/2019

Most parents only find out about the apps on our teenagers' phones when they make a reference to a particular app in conversation or we see a news report about someone using an app to bully, catfish or prey on a young child or teen. It doesn’t have to be that way, however. Parents today can check out apps using freely available websites that do all the legwork of trying out and evaluating apps.
