Kids will be kids. Kids will act out kids and will get in trouble. I completely understand that but when it comes to my kids I'm going to keep tabs on them. If that means I have to monitor Blackberry activity done by them, I'll do so. I trust my kids; I don't always trust everywhere they go or everyone they see. So far, I haven't had any major issues.
Monitoring my kids' behavior is only possible when they are at home, or out with me somewhere. Unfortunately, in this day and age, I want a little extra protection and security when it comes to my kids' well-being. So, when my sister suggested that I track Blackberry usage, I was shocked, then intrigued. After looking into how this was possibly, I opted to try it out. It's fantastic, I can monitor who they talk to, where they are at, and even the websites they use, what they talk about. It provides peace of mind, I have it now.
I have a number of employees that are issued mobile devices for work purposes. I allow for the random personal call, but they are strictly for work purposes. Having the ability readily available to monitor Blackberry habits allows me to make sure they aren't abusing business devices. I was pleased that with the exception of one individual, my employees don't abuse the privilege of having a company issued phone. I would recommend any business owner do the same.
