SelfieCop...Monitor Those Pics!
1. You have to tell your child you are installing it on their phone/tablet/etc. Honesty is what you want to model.
2. You are encouraging appropriate picture taking. The goal is not to 'catch them' in a distasteful pose. I do wish the creators chose a different naming device other than 'cop' for this purpose.
3. Stress the importance of keeping them safe and keeping communication lines open. Remind them of the increase in internet crimes.
4. Make sure you are not receiving photos on a work email. You may want to consider opening a new email account for this purpose, especially if your child really loves to take selfies...your inbox may fill up quickly!
Finally, I cannot stress enough the importance of monitoring all of your child's internet activity. It's a pain. But you'll keep them safe. They think they are invincible, and they trust. You have to guide them. Let this app help you out.
Keep it simple...but keep it safe! ♥D
