I have a daughter who is just about to enter her teens. I want to give her a smartphone for her 13th birthday, but I'm so worried about all the bad things I hear that teens do with their phones, like sexting. What do you think about parental controls or monitoring being put on the phone, like http://www.phonesheriff.com/ ? Will that make the phone safer?

Personally, if that was a huge concern of mine, I would just not get a smartphone for my kids. You can monitor, but then your kid will feel like you are spying and may cause further conflict about privacy.
