Many of us find ourselves in the position where we are constantly connected to the Internet. This is even more so when it comes to our children and then they can access the Internet through their computer, as well as their cell phone in many cases. Even when your child is right in front of you, they may be thousands of miles away doing things online and you really have the responsibility to know what it is that they are doing.

There are a number of different ways of how to protect your child online, but this can become especially difficult when they use devices that are under their control to access the Internet, such as a cell phone. The first thing that you can do in order to regulate this activity is to set limits on the usage of those items, regardless of whether you do so through the phone company or if you do so by limiting the time that they can spend on it. As long as you are paying the bill for these items, you have every right to set these limitations.

Another thing that you can do is to contact the cell phone company and see if there are some additional restrictions that can be placed on the telephone. For example, you may be able to get a regular print out of their activity, and some cell phone companies have begun to make information available to parents. By taking advantage of what is available for you, you can really help to ensure that your child is as safe as possible.
