Why Parental Control?

New age parents and their kids are far more digital than compared against kids born in 90s and their parents. Today, kids use phone to text and communicate with their friends and parents. In fact, even schools have integrated tablets and computers in their curriculum. Even parents have allowed kids to use phones, because that’s the best way working parents can keep in touch with their children staying away from them almost the entire day.

The biggest challenge parents face is balancing between the pros and cons of giving the digital freedom to the children. While phone is needed to stay in touch, it could also lead to children watching inappropriate content online in the absence of parents.
