Good Morning

I have 2 teenagers, who constantly use their mobile phones to send/receive text messages.

Is there any way I can check what messages they are sending/receiving?

They are good kids generally, and I do trust them, but because of their age, I don't want them to fall into bad company.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ask them, or stop paying the bill?

tbh of you have no specific concerns I cant see this going down too well?

Ive been through it like most on here.

Remember to say "it could be worse" is equitable to telling a happy person they could be happier. People feel what they feel.

I have some knowledge of some stuff.

Twiston is right: just ask your kids if you are worried. They are nearly adults though, so they will probably think you are meddling too much. If they are good kids and you trust them why not do that: trust them.

Best wishes,

...All teenagers are constantly on their phones! I agree with the other guys, if they are good kids then perhaps you should trust them to know what the boundaries are. If you're worried then talk to them generally about staying safe online,
