Thanks to smartphones, tablets and the internet, there are many threats to your kids and grandkids that you might not see coming. They could be using one of these five dangerous apps or be in contact with a predator and you wouldn't know.

This is why I encourage parents to talk to kids before they use technology and set clear rules. You should also be regularly checking their gadgets for dangerous apps and conversations, as well as monitoring their social media accounts.

Of course, constant monitoring is a problem. Ideally, you want to be able to peek in on what they're doing no matter where they are. And there are several companies that make remote spy software, such as mSpy, WebWatcher and more.

However, those will set you back $30 or more for the spying app. I've found a spying app that's free and works on up to five phones, so you can keep tabs on all your kids or grandkids.
