Many parents buy an iPad?ie=UTF8&linkCode=as2&camp=1634&creative=6738&tag=wscentral-20&creativeASIN=iPad">B0047DVWLW for their children or their teenagers. It seems the natural thing to do. After all, it’s the gadget that everybody wants. In addition to that, teens will not rest until you buy them one, so you might as well get something in return, like good grades.

 

However, one must not forget that an iPad is NOT an expensive toy. Teenagers can and will do things that are not appropriate with the gadget. And you can be sure that they are not going to do them where you can find them. Your best bet is to get an iPad monitoring app and discover if your teen is involved with any of the following:

 

A) Sexting

 

Basically sending messages describing sex. Teens pretend to have sex online by telling each other their actions and reactions during the act, as if it were actually happening. Most parents find this inappropriate and if your child is doing it, you should definitely know about it.

 

B) Pictures

 

We all know how some careers have been destroyed by racy pictures. Your child is not a celebrity or a famous person; but even so, I’m sure you don’t want pictures of your daughter in a state of undress being shared with her friends or boyfriend and possibly being leaked on the Internet, where they will follow her for the rest of her life.

 

C) Visiting Porn Sites

 

All the control that you have over what your child sees in the computer at home goes out the window the moment he takes the iPad with him. Because an iPad is mobile, he can use it wherever he wants and that’s usually a place where you can’t see what he sees. As most teenagers, he will be interested in sex (after all, it’s glorified in the media). Nevertheless, porn sites are not the appropriate venue to learn about sex. If you discover he is visiting porn sites, you can block them with the site and also have “the talk” with your teen.

 

D) Share sensitive or private information

 

Some things, funny as they are, must remain private and inside the family. If you grab a gun and your child takes a picture of you, the application can let you know if he posted it on Facebook. That can cause you trouble with your boss or the law, because the picture doesn’t say that you have a permit to own that gun and that you know how to handle and store it. But no, people will see you as a dangerous person and react accordingly.

 

Conclusion

 

It’s great to have an iPad when you’re a teenager. I’m an adult and I love mine. However, I know how to use it appropriately and a teenager doesn’t. That is why it’s worth investing in an iPad monitoring app and knowing that your child is safer because of it.
