My teen kid self-harms : using pen-knife to make hundreds of tiny cuts on upper wrist, thigh & harbour
thoughts of suicide which despite visiting a couple of psychiatrists & psychologists still persist.
Finally after being warded under tight-surveillance psychiatric ward for 2 weeks with a much stronger
anti-depressants, it improves but the lead psychiatrist cautions that it's not completely gone & close
surveillance is needed. Thing is both parents are working: parents drive teen to school & hand over
to teachers: the teachers agree to watch closely during classes but during recess or trips to toilets,
surveillance may not be possible.
The kid hogs onto the iPhone all the time & it comes with 4G data plan, so it's a good way of
monitoring/tracking how the kid is doing
When at home, domestic helper can help watch but she has to watch the autist sibling who is very
noisy. The only device that is constantly glued to this 'depressed' teen is iPhone6. Is there any
software that we could install that could stealthily monitor her via the phone's front camera?
The 'depressed' teen is affected by the sibling's wailings, shoutings & cryings, so the psychiatrist
felt it may be a good idea to onboard the 'depressed' teen in the school's hostel (which is only
10 minutes walk from our house) when the condition stabilized. Mum & dad will still need to
be able to monitor teen for signs of distress, so such a software/tool which could send videos
& audios of the teen who could concurrently use the phone (including taking photos/videos
though whatsapp, watching movies & phone calls take up >98% of the usage) will be ideal
If the software (or we can add on another software) that transmits the whereabout of the
kid (sort of GPS), that will be an added bonus as the kid ever "disappear" for half a day
without telling parent
The softwares should have sort of authentication which the parents need to enter so that
not anybody could connect to it. If possible, it should allow 2 concurrent connections
for both parents to connect/view/monitor the teen at the same time.
Best that the software don't show up on the iPhone's "desktop"
Doesn't sound ethical but kid is under-aged. At least kid hogs to the iPhone all the time
