Parenting is a tough job, even tougher to being the President of any Fortune 500 company. It’s because our kids are the future of our world and how better they can perform and contribute to the betterment of mankind – is largely dependent on how the moms bring them up. Thus, added to ensuring care, comfort and education, moms have to assure regular tab on them to make sure our kids are safe and don’t succumb to illicit & unethical practices. That doesn’t mean you will be a tiger mom always but little tab now and then will only do good to your child. They might be offended with the constant monitoring initially but once they grow up, they will certainly understand the selfless loving interest you had it for them all through.

Here are the top 4 ways on how you can keep tab on your kids for their safety and your peace.

Have the phone numbers handy

You should have the phone numbers of folks closer to the kid handy always. This way, when you can’t reach up to your child, you can contact these numbers to check about his or her whereabouts.

Get GPS trackers

Thanks to modern technological advancements in the tracking sector, it has got even easier now to keep check on your kids whereabouts. GPS trackers are a boon in the monitoring scene as they offer you real-time reports on the current location the child. You have the GPS trackers in the form of trendy watches, mobile phone tracking app, GPS smart tags and so on. This way, you will have complete knowledge when the child is lying you about his current location. Besides, God forbid, even if somebody kidnaps your child, the GPS tracker can inform you where the child is being hidden.

Smartphone activity monitoring apps

Then, you have smartphone activity monitoring apps to spy over the mobile phone activities of your teen. This is to ensure that your kids don’t get entrapped into baits laid by pedophiles/scammers and also to make sure they don’t waste themselves into unwanted adolescent behaviors- such excessive indulgence into porn. These apps will reveal to you all the calls, texts and apps used by the teen in his phone.

CCTV cameras

It’s a busy world today where both the parents are into professional world which forces one to keep the child alone in the house. Yes, you might have hired a nanny but you cannot trust anyone just like that. Reports are rife of apparently innocuous nannies doubling up as kidnappers sneaking children away when the parents are not at home. Thus, CCTV cameras are a must for every home.
