Hi there, missrealtor. We know it's important to sometimes monitor young children. While we can't direct you on the use of any kind of spyware, you can definitely use our Smart Family service, to gain control over some activities. You'll be able to learn more about this here: https://www.verizon.com/solutions-and-services/verizon-smart-family/ You will need to have access to the phones to have the most options. We hope this helps!
