    I'm 16, and curious, why the hell would you want to do that?

    1. I can't see there being anything that'll tell you where he's going, unless you mean like sites, and stuff, that's a possibility.
    2. Text Messages stay on the phone, unless he's a smart cookie, rebels against you and deletes them.. Like I would!

    dont do it. its just f***ed up. kids now a days do a lot there parents dont want them to do. but MOST of us know right from wrong, even if we choose some wrong. my mom tries to watch what i do and i hate it because i do a lot she cant find out. just let your son do what he wants with his iphone and his friends. now if he is the type who will be in jail in a few years then yea i would do this. but if he seems ok, just let him live his life.

    Really, how old are both of you? I'm 16, and I text all night, all morning, I have a good 30,000 texts a month and then some. I live with my grandparents, and they're slacker I guess.

    I'll say this, when your doing stuff like that, it's gonna piss your kid off, he or she will be sitting there thinking "Wow, she doesn't trust me.. This is bull!". You'll be taking his or her freedom away, and he or she will re-act in a bad way, I promise you that. Us teenagers, when someone challenges us, authority, especially parents, takes things too far, you trigger us to do something we wouldn't do... To prove you right, but at the same time we're getting you back.

    My mom took my phone one night, and said I didn't need to go everywhere with it.. So I didn't care to ask what time I was to be home, went out to a party at 9PM, came back around 5 or 6AM, couldn't walk straight and had two girls with me. My mom hasn't taken my phone since...

    I live with my grandparents. I go to my mom's house every now and then, since she has high-speed or if I wanna go to town and visit friends for a couple nights, or if I'm in another town closer to here's I can go back to her house instead of the 1Hr or whatever drive it is home. Makes life easier on my grandparents.

    How can you protect him just by knowing where your son is? or by reading his txt messages?

    I'm not judging your parenting skills, but you could better sit down with your son so now and then and have a good conversation (not: you can't do this/that conversation) and find out that way what is going on in his life.

    If I knew my parents would be observing me I would leave my iphone at home....

    Just my 2 cents
