By looking at their phones or setting up message + on a computer.  They will get notification that messages are being viewed on another device.

Remember there are many ways to message these days, and if kids know they are being monitored, they will just use another form of messaging that you can't track.  That is why the only sure way is to have access to the device.  Otherwise you will get a false sense of what they are doing.
