Would you monitor a childs phone to make sure they are being responsible? If so, what kind of apps or software are available?

If they need monitoring software on their phone then they are not responsible enough for the phone.

Or they need the phone because they need monitoring. Ijs

I don't agree with this logic at all.  It makes no sense if they need monitoring then they should not be without adult supervision.

Well, that’s not realistic at all, now is it?

What exactly are you trying to monitor?  Just whereabouts? Who are they speaking to? How old?

12 possibly wanting to make sure child is being responsible with getting a phone since it is new to child. Wont have access to other apps just calls, texts, pictures: basic in the beginning to show responsiblilty

For a starter phone maybe try a basic flip phone if you do not want them to have access to apps?

We just have the parental controls set on DS's phone and he's not on any social media.
