How SMS Spy Software Can Help Parents Monitor Their Teen’s Text Messages
As a child approaches teen-hood, parents can’t help but worry. We all know that it’s a difficult age and we all remember how at that age we thought that we knew everything, that our parents were old-fashioned and wrong. But most of all, we cringe when we remember all the stupid and dangerous things that we did at the time because we thought they were “cool” or because we were under peer pressure.
The situation is not better today, in fact, it’s worse. And it’s the reason why many parents use SMS Spy Software on the cell phones of their children.
You see, there are many differences between adults and teenagers, and one of them is how we communicate with others. We, as adults, prefer to call. It’s fast and efficient, and cost is not an issue for us. In addition, we can call and talk about anything we want, practically whenever we want and regardless of the place we are. Plus, typing on a small keyboard feels like a chore to us.
Teenagers are the exact opposite. They are used to typing and they don’t have the freedom we have to just pick up the phone and talk at any time. They spend a lot of time in classes, where they can’t make calls, and there are many things they don’t feel free to talk about openly, especially when we, the parents, are around. So they send SMS messages. Also, text messages are much more discreet and they can write them in front of us and we won’t know what they are texting about.
For example, let’s say that your best friend calls you and asks you to go watch the game and asks you to bring a few beers. No problem, right? Now a teenager would have a hard time talking about the beer if you are within hearing range (and he should, a teenager should not be drinking!). And in the same way, there are many topics that are embarrassing or troublesome to talk about openly; smoking, drinking, the girl he likes, and yes, how old-fashioned and clueless we are.
And it wouldn’t be a problem if it weren’t for the fact that many of these things can be potentially dangerous. We all know that drugs, alcohol, and tobacco are harmful, yet attractive to teenagers. However, there are other things that are as bad. Does your son like a cute girl? One beer too many and he could have unprotected sex with her. Does your daughter thinks she’s too fat? Anorexia or bulimia could be around the corner. And that doesn’t even take into accounts stalkers, molesters, inappropriate friends, bullies, kidnappers, etc.
To make matters worse, teenagers still haven’t developed the habit of thinking things through. They might do something that looks fun but it’s actually dangerous. They are also in an age where hormones kick in, making them very aware of the opposite sex and making them think that natural impulses are “true love” worth fighting the world (which again, is mostly us).
By using a SMS spy software, you can save yourself a lot of grief. And finally, here’s the most attractive thing about it: you don’t need your child’s will to get this information. Parents of teenagers know very well how hard it is to get true information from a child, and how it’s usually accompanied by a big fight and how we “don’t let them live their lives.” Now it doesn’t have to be that way.
So, if you are ready to finally get rid of the fights with your teenager and know anything that might put him or her in danger, I suggest you try SpyBubble. Out of all the text message spying programs, SpyBubble is the easiest to install and use. It doesn’t require cables or opening the phone, just a few keystrokes on the phone and you’re done. Try SpyBubble for a while and see how you feel with it.
