Better late than never, device and phone companies are realizing that parents are concerned about their child’s wellbeing on their devices.
For example, Instagram has wellbeing info for parents on their main site and T-Mobile is offering parental control options and advice. T-mobile is also partnering with Circle, a monitoring tool for our kid’s online activity.

The iOS update just released iOS 12 which has some tools to help you set up a safety net on your child’s apple device.
