This is a better solution than Find My Friends since it doesn't require AirDrop or that a person be nearby.
Find my Kids: parental control on the App Store
You can learn how to share your location here. There has to be some understanding between you and your child that you will be tracking their location when you purchase them an iPhone. All of these services can be turned off with the flip of a switch or even ignored. Obviously you didn't grow up, live in, or visit any of the mid west. I'm sure the parents of those kids really fit your ignorant description. Thanks for the vote of confidence though.
No he doesn't have any children that is why he is saying these things. He must be a psychologist too!
All I know is with the world that it is today being concerned about the your children is a plus more than a negative. Yeah and that American thing well up you bloody ass. If you want to know what your partners are upto behind you , are you suspicious of any cheating moves from your partner? Will you like to monitor calls , texts , medias , real time location?
He helped me twice. Why do parents buy their kids iphones?
What Can You Do with iKeyMonitor?
I aim to keep her safe, not deprive of all conveniences, and still leave some things that she wants within her ability to earn for herself. If the only thing that young adults want-but-can't-easily-afford are way out of reach to them, then they won't even try and they might become accustomed to being dependent for everything they want.
My parenting advice: leave most of the really good stuff just out of reach, and then help them in their efforts to get it themselves if that is what they show that they really want. You're a tool bag. It's one way or the other for you. You the dumb ass blowhard the other guy was referring to. If you have great kids, do incredible in school by working their asses off, are respectable to you and others, there's nothing in the world you shouldn't try to do for them.
You teach as you go, not try to deprive them. The same mentality was forced upon a neighbors little girl and she came to our house and stole what she wanted. Great kid, misguided parent. Wake up and know that the time your kids invest in the books and sports is just as hard and more than likely harder than your nine to five.
Plus, they already have it tough dealing with just growing up. Be a good parent, support your kids in what's important, and as the succeed reward the he'll out of them. Otherwise your kid is going to learn how to rake leaves, mow yards, and flip burgers for that iPhone, new purse, or cheap apartment just to get away from you.

You sound like the shmuck that puts everything on your kids shoulders. They have enough to worry about. When are they supposed to be kids if they are out trying to earn what in reality you're either to greedy to give or unable to provide. Support man. Support and watch them shine. Hell you'd probably crumble taking half my daughters AP load and and would have to skip her 4 day a week cheer practice, 2 day a week play practice, and have to skip out on all of her One Tree Hill episodes just to cut mustard.
I'm not even going to try to reason with you because I know your kind and it's sad. You're saving yourself a lot of trouble with the way those things are stolen on high school campuses. I know, I work on one. We have kids who keep their eyes out for iPhone owners who've turned their back on their phone for a second. That's all it takes. Then, all you have to do is text a friend to be by the classroom door, pass the phone to him, and it's gone.
The teacher can call security, have everyone turned upside down, given a good shake, and nothing, no iPhone, already gone. The kids will turn off the phone so iCloud can't track the phone until it's safe to break into the thing. They're very savy, especially where I work.
You have organized gangs, mostly Hispanic and African-American. One of my girls came to school flying a red bandana out of her back pocket. Someone in her crew will know the tricks. Look narrow minded. If not worse. Theft has no color. Yeah, theft is color blind. That's a good one.
My advice is totally opposite yours i give mine everything of the latest then they head into adulthood expecting inly the best and they will always get it, your child will never have anything as shes grown up never having anything and thats what she will expect of herself as an adult. No wonder so many people have issues with parenting like yours. MobileMe is now converting to iCloud. I cannot find a way to track an iPhone without that iPhone user knowing, which is practically useless.
And if they are bad kids, they will just either leave the phone somewhere like in their bedroom when they sneak out or disable the find my F-ing phone feature right in the god damn iCloud setting on their own F-ing phone. SO frustrating. And for anyone who thinks tracking your child's whereabouts secretly is bad, do me a favor please and shut up, spare me your useless opinions and fuck off. You're going to have to use the spy software for cheating spouses.
You don't need the whole package, only the gps part, unless you want to spy on your kids text messages and phone calls. I agree with the idea that tracking your kid is okay. They're not adults. They don't have all of the rights of adults and guess which part of the brain neuroscientists say doesn't mature until around the age of 23? The decision center. Explains a lot about teenagers.
