It can be frustrating for parents of teenagers who rarely answer their phone calls, sometimes ignoring them on purpose. One Houston mom got so fed up she took matters into her own hands, literally. Sharon Stanford figured out that her kids weren't just missing calls, they were ignoring them. So she had an idea. After some research and months of working with a developer she created an app that gives control of her children's phones at her fingertips.

It's called Ignore No More. And here's how it works. As a parent all I have to do is touched the app, tap his name, lock Bradley's device enter at least a four digit code.

And now I'm gonna press lock Bradley'sphone. If you watch Bradley's phone it is going to go blank Bradley needs to call me because I'm the person that has the unlock password. Don't worry kids can still call 911 and other parents selected numbers and parents can't read text messages.
