New York-area mom Sharon Standifird was fed up with her kids ignoring her phone calls, so she decided to do something about it. Eventually, Standifird developed an app called Ignore No More, which enables parents to effectively lock their child's phone from afar if they won't pick up. If a kid wants the password required to regain access to her usual array of smartphone accoutrements, she has to call home to get it. “Bradley needs to call me because I’m the person that has the unlock password,” Standifird says, in reference to her son. “It takes away texting, it takes away the gaming, it takes away calling their friends.” However, the child will still be able to call 911, should an emergency arise.
