TeenSafe Supports National Bullying Prevention Month
The support they give is empowering parents to be aware of cyberbullying. iPhone, Android and Tablet Monitoring Allows Parents to Stay Aware and Helps Prevent the Harmful Effects of Bullying.
COSTA MESA, Calif., (Oct 22, 2014) – TeenSafe, creator of the iPhone, Android and tablet monitoring software, announces today its commitment to supporting PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month through creating awareness around the effects of bullying and by being a tool for parents in keeping their children from becoming victims.
TeenSafe gives parents the ability to see their children’s incoming, outgoing and deleted text messages, web browsing history, contacts, call logs, location and Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Kik activity to ensure they are not suffering from harassment of cyberbullies.
“October is PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Month, and we are grateful for the support of organizations like TeenSafe who share in our passion for raising awareness of bullying,” said Julie Hertzog, Director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. “When we stand together, no one has to stand alone.”
Currently, over 75 percent of teens in the United States have smartphones and according to BullyingStatistics.org, half of all students admit to have been cyberbullied. Of that half, only 1 in 10 informed an adult about the incident. Bullying can lead to low self-esteem, poor academic performance, lack of motivation, depression and suicide. Parents using TeenSafe have the ability to see this type of harassment first-hand and immediately taking appropriate actions and communicating with their child.
“We know the terrible effects bullying and cyberbullying can have on our children and want to empower parents to be aware of what goes on behind the screen of their smartphone by protecting and communicating with them in love,” said Ameeta Jain, TeenSafe co-founder. “Cyberbullying can be a difficult topic for children to discuss with their parents because of the embarrassment and shame that comes along with it. TeenSafe gives them the ability to see what is going on and step in when appropriate, teaching them self-worth and how to cope with peer pressure. ”
Founded in 2011 and based in Costa Mesa, Calif., TeenSafe developed the world’s first iPhone monitoring solution that works without modifying your child’s phone, allowing parents to monitor their children’s text messages, location, web browsing history, contacts and call logs. Over 500,000 parents have signed up for TeenSafe since inception and their web-based software solution provides parents easy and secure access to their children’s social interactions via an online TeenSafe account. TeenSafe has created a parental advice blog called Teenology.com which gives tips, guidelines and personal testimonials in order to support and help parents of teens in today’s technology-filled world.
