Screen Retriever, is a monitoring program that allows parents to record and remotely view their children’s computer screen in real time.
The program lets you “check-in” on your children from time to time without being too intrusive.
It's possible that teens are only testing boundaries with these apps.
Many are eager to be on the same wavelength as their 20-something counterparts, and the prospect of meeting someone outside their social circle is exciting.
Although adults use these apps both for casual hookups and for scouting out more long-term relationships, they're risky for teens.
For starters, although many of the apps aren't intended for them, it's easy for savvy teens to get around registration-related age restrictions. Location-sharing increases the potential for a real-life meeting; less dangerous but still troubling is the heavy emphasis on looks as a basis for judgment.
But these apps are not a safe way for them to explore dating.If you learn your teen is using dating apps, take the opportunity to talk about using social media safely and responsibly -- and discuss what's out of bounds.
