Every parent knows about the great cellphone conundrum. On one hand, you can't imagine not having a way to communicate with your kids when they're on the school bus, at a friend's house or shopping at the mall. But, on the other hand, who knows what else they're using it for?

You've all heard scary stories about teenagers being lured to meet "friends" they've been chatting with on social media apps. Plus, it's all too easy for them to click on an inappropriate website.

At Komando.com, we're always telling you about ways to keep your kids safe. That includes apps that let you put time limits on their smartphone, and Cool Sites that let you see the websites your kids have been visiting.
