    "I'm a huge Fox News watcher and I know that that every single person on the internet is trying to kidnap or kill my kid constantly. Child Protection Services won't let me install a microchip in my child so I went with next best thing and that's the MamaBear Family Safety app. Obviously every child should own a smart phone and be popular on every social media platform and this app lets me track my child through the world wide web, I love it!"

    "This app is great if you need to keep an eye on what your child is doing, but you want them to have a smartphone at the same time. I can see whatever my child is doing with this program and prevent them from visiting sites such as Facebook that aren't exactly dangerous, but can be in certain situations. The best thing about this app is that it is very easy to use and therefore reliable for parents who want to keep an eye on their child and stop them from seeing bad things. This app allows me to have peace of mind because I do not have to worry about my child having a phone if he needs to contact me. "

    "This is a neat way to get kids to do their chores. I think the would be more inclined to so them if there are incentives and fun. I would definitely use this with my youngest child."

    "This app is typically reliable, but from time to time, it is not as responsive or accurate as one might expect. Considering that this app is often used to track children, and that real time, accurate monitoring is highly important in this case, I feel like it might not be the absolute best choice. Even a small failure by the app could lead to a potentially large amount of distress or worry."

    "SheildMyTeen Parental Control was created for parents who are concerned about their children's habits when surfing the web. Although this app claims to be able to block malicious websites and give parents full control over their children's activities on the Internet, many consumers have complained that it is not fully functional, and is not compatible with many different web browsers."

    "This app could be good for parents that need to locate their kids, but it's also super creepy and seems like it can be easily abused. I understand if it's an emergency and you need to find someone, but aside from that I'd rather not track my children like this. "
