Parents have it rough out there in today's world when it comes to kids and technology.

Children as young as six are getting cell phones for Christmas. It's no wonder by the age of ten that their apps on their smartphones are basically their entire world.

The truth is you probably thought that giving your kid a phone would mean you'd stay in constant contact. Like the phone would be a good way to keep tabs on them. If your child owns a smartphone, then you probably know this is definitely not the case. Is your child so distracted by their apps that they never answer your texts? I can't even imagine your anxiety levels...

Luckily, this dad came up with a solution for you! Behold the ReplyASAP app!

App creator Nick Herbert designed it to essentially force kids to stop and text their parents back so they don't worry. The app freezes the phone and even sounds an alarm when the phone is on silent.

So, no more excuses, teens! ANSWER YOUR PARENTS. They're worried, as they should be; that's their job.
