“Parents who are sick and tired of wondering what their rambunctious teens might be up to can use a new method to track them down; it’s called the “Ignore No More” app .
The idea was created by Texas mother Sharon Standifird who was tired of her children not responding to her calls when they were out.
The new app works by shutting down available activities on the child’s phone when the parent sees fit. For instance, while there is still the ability to call 911, he or she will no longer be able to call friends or play games. Furthermore, a visit to mom or dad will be in order to unlock the device.
“When you lock your child’s phone with Ignore No More your child has only two options – he or she can call you back, or call for an emergency responder,” Standifird said, via the News Ledge. “No calls to friends, no text, no games, notta’ until they call you back. When they do, you can unlock their phone if you choose to do so. How’s that for parental control?”
From the Editors: Here’s an Inexpensive App That Requires No Phone, No Batteries, and Is Recommended in the Bible for Use by All Parents with Misbehaving Kids:
Parents who hate their children won’t use this “App” but loving parents use it every time it is needed! What is it? It’s the rod of discipline! Proverbs 13:24 states, “Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him” (ESV.) Here’s God’s view on parents who won’t spank their children whenever they need it: “Whoever spares the rod hates his son.” And just in case you’re confused about what it means to be diligent, check out the dictionary definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary at the bottom of the page. Parents, you can only teach your children to not ignore your calls by teaching them when they are toddlers to listen and instantly obey you when you speak to them. The kids who won’t take their parents phone calls learned when they were little to ignore and disregard their parents voices. Parents who tolerate habitual self-centeredness and disobedience teach their children to disrespect them. Children learn to misbehave and be disobedient when they determine that their parents lack the will to enforce their verbal instructions. This is why parents must diligently enforce their commands with appropriate punishment for disobedience. Children should be taught to obey on the first instance, and parents who give 2nd, 3rd or more reminders are irresponsible. Children are always learning from their parents. Lazy, careless parents who lack the will to enforce their verbal instructions teach their children to have contempt for their parents. There is nothing more important than communicating to your children that they can ignore your instructions only at their own peril! To trust and obey is the only way for children to respond to their parents instructions.
