We love it when we receive appreciation for providing a simple solution that allows parents to monitor teen habits and patterns. Teen driving is just one of many reasons parents consider device monitoring. We’ve compiled some of the top reasons families use the MamaBear app. In particular, here’s a short list of the benefits MamaBear families observe when using the app to monitor teen driving.
5. We’re worried
Parents are almost universally worried when our kids first take to the roads. We’re worried about their safety but also excited about the added freedom and responsibility that driving means. More than a few of us use the passenger seat floorboard as imaginary brakes while in the car with our kids, but realize we can’t always be there to pretend to slow down. MamaBear allows parents to monitor teen driving speed from anywhere, making the driving experience easier for both parents and teens.
4. It’s a Conversation Starter
Having information about your kid’s driving speed and whereabouts allows you to have important safety conversations. Using relevant situations about driving too fast can help you lay out the consequences of speeding – and we’re talking about the consequence of seriously hurting someone else or themselves. In addition, knowing where they visited can support discussions about dangerous destinations.
3. Eliminate Side Trips and Unapproved Trips
The GPS monitoring and location alert features of the MamaBear app helps parents monitor teen driving in ways we didn’t expect. Parents get alerts if the child goes to an un-approved location or leaves an approved location outside of the agreed upon schedule. Combined with speed alerts and GPS tracking features, this has helped quite a few MamaBear families know when the kids are taking an unauthorized spin.
2. The Kids Drive More Responsibly
When our kids know we care enough to monitor, they tend to behave a little better. We’ve found that kids drive quite a bit slower when they drive with a monitoring app on board. With the MamaBear app, teens know their parents will get an alert if they exceed a set speed. By combining speed alerts with GPS mapping, kids are typically more cautious behind the wheel.
1. We’re There in an Emergency.
MamaBear makes sure our kids can communicate quickly in the wake of an emergency. Even something as simple as a flat tire can be scary to a new driver. When there’s a fender bender, a flat or a break down, the whole family will be happy for the easy, one button communication MamaBear provides.
If you’re nervous about your teen driving, let the MamaBear app ease your worries.

When you’re looking for an option for kid tracker technology, it can often mean that you’re moving beyond what you feel is your normal range of monitoring. This can be because you’re giving your kid some added responsibility, like driving or an extended curfew. It can also mean that you’re worried about where your child is and if they’re safe. We developed the MamaBear kid tracker app to give parents an easy option, no matter what reason you need to track your kid.
So where should you look and what should you look for in a kid tracker device or app?
Searching online is usually the best tool for finding options in a kid tracker app or device. Child tracking devices and apps are still a relatively new concept and aren’t too commonly available. Search engines offer us several options for kid trackers, but a wide range of options doesn’t always mean a wide range of effective solutions when we’d like to track our children. The Google Play Store provides options like the MamaBear kid tracker app for Android powered phones. The Apple App Store provides options for iPhones and other iOS enabled devices.
For a new and growing technology like kid tracker devices and apps, the web seems like the obvious choice for both shopping and research. Popular search engines provide answers to all sorts of parenting questions, including options when it comes to tracking our kids. Search engines can provide a broad range of options for research sake, but often have so many items at such varied costs that it can be difficult to come to a decision. That’s why many parents opt to use a smartphone as a kid tracker. A smartphone is a simple solution that the child will be happy to carry on them at all times.
Smartphones work wonders for kid trackers, and that means finding apps.
The Google Play Store and the Apple App store are good places to find all sorts of parenting apps. Both app retailers offer approved apps parents can trust. MamaBear is available on both the Google Play Store and the App Store and offers several options for parents to track their kids online and in the real world. The MamaBear app is an effective solution to turn a smartphone into a parenting tool and is a great example of an app being used as a kid tracker.
No matter what your reason is for needing a kid tracker, MamaBear is there to help. Our child monitoring app has received extensive media coverage, and we’re glad to offer our app for free during our current public beta test.
