A new device protects sexual predators from calling or texting your kid.
Sexual predators have found a new method of stalking your kids: Cell phones.
Experts on this morning's "Today" show warned parents about the dangers of letting kids carry cell phones: Receiving unsolicited phone calls and text messages from child molesters.
We all know predators target kids online, but now these perverts are going a step further by sending out hundreds of sexually explicit text messages and voice mails in the hopes that a few will respond - and many do.
Considering 50% of eight to twelve year-olds carry cell phones, you may want to consider this device: RADAR is a revolutionary child protection solution for monitoring your kid's cell phone activity.
Here's how it works: For $10 a month, you and your kid create an authorized contact list for with an easy-to-use website. The list automatically replaces the address book on your child's cell phone. So any calls or text messages outside the authorized list - both inbound and outbound - triggers an automatic alert to your cell phone, displaying the full message content. Plus, you'll get to keep a log of your kid's cell phone use.
Think of it like Spyware, except both you and your child are in on it together.
