​Our Kids Are Like Us...
They Don't Tell Their Parents Everything

​Hi, I'm Ted. As a parent with three kids, I understand the challenges parents face. My two daughters are at the age where they want to start doing things on their own with their friends. Understandably, I have concerns as they venture out into the world on their own. I believe my kids will be fine. However, this is a different world than when I was a teenager.

Text messaging has opened new doors for kids. Unfortunately, it has also created new opportunities for bad things to happen. Bad ideas and bad intentions now travel fast and are easily sent to kids.

In today’s fast-paced environment, parents face a difficult challenge to stay in-touch with their children. You want to stay involved and understand what is happening in your child’s life, but often it is difficult to have a meaningful discussion with your child. With all the crazy things happening in today’s society, it is more important than ever to know your kid’s friends and what they are doing.


Kids spend a great deal of time texting each other. For a parent, having access to your child’s text messages would certainly be helpful. However, it may be difficult to keep up with all the technology kids are using.

​Realizing I Needed to Do Something

One day, a co-worker was telling me a story about reading her teenager’s text messages.  She found a text from a classmate who was trying to organize a party. Apparently the kid was bragging about taking alcohol from his grandparents and was trying to get a group of kids together for a party. Since my co-worker knew what was happening, she was able to take appropriate action.


My co-worker got lucky to stumble upon the text message. There had to be a more reliable way to view a child's messages.


After hearing the story, I began researching ways I could monitor my kids’ text messages. I found various monitoring apps and monitoring services available on the Internet. Each of the monitoring apps I reviewed had some drawbacks. I also did not want to be stuck paying a monthly fee for a monitoring service.


There had to be an easier way to monitor text messages so I could better understand what is happening in my kids’ lives. Let’s face it; even the best kids don’t tell their parents everything.

​If Your Child Has an iPhone,
There is a Simple Solution

​Here's the basic process to monitor their iMessages.

You Can Monitor Your Child's iMessages

I developed a plan to use the built-in capabilities of iMessage to monitor my kid’s messages. I have been using this method for several years with great success. I have also helped several friends monitor their kids' messages. There is peace of mind in knowing what they are doing and to know if a potential issue would arise.

​Use the Built-in Capabilities of the iMessage System to Monitor Your Child's Messages

​If your child has an iPhone, you can easily monitor their messages. ​

  • angle-right
    ​You will need an Apple device to monitor your kid's iMessages. 
    ​This device can be an iPad, iPod touch, Mac computer, or an old deactivated iPhone that is no longer in use. You can also use your own iPhone, but I recommend using a dedicated monitoring device separate from your iPhone. 
  • angle-right
    ​The monitoring device needs to be connected to the Internet.
    ​The device will need to be connected to the Internet using either a Wi-Fi network or a cellular data network to receive your child’s messages. You will also need to know your child’s Apple ID and password.
  • angle-right
    ​Connect the monitoring device to your child's iMessage account.
    ​You can setup the monitoring device to receive your child’s iMessages using their Apple ID and password. You can then setup the Text Message Forwarding feature to have their SMS text messages sent to the monitoring device.
  • angle-right
    ​Beware of the alert notification sent by Apple.
    ​​You need to be aware that Apple sends a notification alert to your child’s device when another device signs in to their account. You may not want your child to see the notification, so you will need to clear the alert.
  • angle-right
    ​Be​ careful trying to use your iPhone as a monitoring device.
    ​​​If you use your own iPhone to monitor your child’s messages, everything needs to be setup correctly on your child’s iPhone or your messages could be delivered to your child’s iPhone.

​Are You a Little Unsure About Where to Begin?

While some folks may be able to go right out and set up message monitoring, others may need a little more help.


I always hear statements like:

"I don't know how to setup iMessage accounts on the iPhone."

or

"I'm not tech-savvy. I can't do this."


​It's OK if you don't feel comfortable or if you don't think you're not tech-savvy.

If you're unsure ​about setting up the message monitoring, I have gathered all the information you need and put it into one easy to follow step-by-step guide that will help you monitor your child’s iPhone messages.

What People Are Saying About the Guide

“​Your text monitoring system is the best thing available...”

“​Your text monitoring system is the best thing available for monitoring my child’s phone. It has been an invaluable tool for me to keep tabs on my daughter. I tried “company name deleted” but was very disappointed. Using their monitoring system, I was only able to view her texts after the iPhone backed up to iCloud. Your system allows me to view the text immediately. “Company name deleted” is also expensive and notifies my child every time I log into her iCloud account. I highly recommend your system. It works great!"

​Cindy

“​Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!

“​Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! I really needed to monitor my daughter’s messages because I have caught her lying to me about a serious situation. You have been such a great help. I appreciate it so much!"

​Missy

“​Thank you so much for all your help...

“Thank you so much for all your help Ted. Your children are lucky. You must be a great dad because you are so patient and understanding. I canceled “company name deleted” because my daughter deletes most if her messages and they are rarely able to recover them. It’s not worth the $15 a month. Thanks again."

Why Monitor Your Child's iMessages?

People often wonder whether they should monitor their child's messages. In today’s fast-paced environment, parents face a difficult challenge to stay in-touch with their children. You want to stay involved and understand what is happening in your child’s life, but often it is difficult to have a meaningful discussion with your child. With all the crazy things happening in today’s society, it is more important than ever to know your kid’s friends and what they are doing.


You can gain a better understanding of what’s happening in your kids' lives and help keep them safe by monitoring their iPhone messages. Let’s face it; even the best kids don’t tell their parents everything.

​Should I Tell My Child They Are Being Monitored?

It’s easy to believe our kids are good and won’t get in trouble, and that may very well be true. However, this is a different world than when we were teenagers. Text messaging has opened new doors for kids. Unfortunately, it has also created new opportunities for predators. Bad ideas and bad intentions now travel at the speed of light.


It is recommended you be upfront with your child and let them know what you are doing. However, it is understandable this may not be possible in all situations. The monitoring guide contains some helpful tips to setup iMessage monitoring if you are not planning to ​notify your child. The decision on whether or not to inform your child is ultimately up to you and your particular situation.

​What Do I Need to Monitor My Child's iMessages?

​You will need an Apple device to monitor messages from your child’s iPhone.  This device can be an iPad, iPod touch, Mac computer, or an old deactivated iPhone that is no longer in use. You can also use your own iPhone, but I recommend using a dedicated monitoring device separate from your iPhone. The monitoring device will need to be connected to the Internet either with a Wi-Fi network or a cellular data network to receive your child’s messages.
