Tired of her children ignoring her calls and messages, this mother has designed a new phone app called Ignore No More!

When a call is ignored, this new app allows the parent to lock their child’s phone so that their only options are to either call their parents back or reach emergency services in case of emergency.

When locked, the only person the phone can reach is the phone that locked it – this means no texting friends, no facebook, no photos…nothing until the parent decides to unlock the phone again.

The mother behind this app is Sharon Standifird from Texas, who designed the app after becoming sick of her teenage son refusing to answer any of her calls.

Since she started using the app, Sharon says her son now answers her calls and messages much faster than ever before!

What do you think though? A genius invention or a bit over the top?

  1. This is outrages. Teenagers already get enough attention from their parents, and now they can control our phones! HONESTLY!

  2. i think thats such a cool app i think my mum should get it because i have a felling that my brothers gonna get in big trubble because of this app so THANKS!!

  3. I think this is a great idea just would be a bit annoying still teenagers should have this app instolled I think this because I have an older sister that would really annoy us not picking up not answering texts some days she wouldn’t even talk to us! There for I think this is a great idea!

  4. I think this is great for situations when the teenager is needed, though they won’t pick it up.
