Made sure my daughter is acting safely...
"When i first started using McGruff SafeGuard, i suppose i felt a little guilty. But i soon felt it was worth it. After a few weeks it alerted me to the fact my daughter (aged 14) was planning to buy cannabis for a sleep over party she was having. I then had enough time to think things through on how i was going to handle this, and with out blowing my use of McGruff SafeGuard. As i knew when she was getting it i was able to hatch a plan to catch her out, but as if it were by mistake, and therefore enabling me to continue to use McGruff SafeGuard and make sure my daughter is acting safely, (well... safer than me not knowing what she's up to). I think you have to remember you will see probably lots of things that may upset you a little, as they obviously talk differently to their friends than they do at home, so i found i had to just try and focus on the bigger picture, i.e. drugs etc."

Saved our child from going down the wrong path...
"The first night that we installed McGruff SafeGuard we were able to see the plans of my 15 year old son and his friends. they were planning to get some alcohol and organize a party at another child's house that Friday. McGruff SafeGuard literally helped us save our child from going down the wrong path. we were able to intervene and talk to him about his choices and the kids he was hanging with. He is doing well now and we are very grateful that we installed it when we did. if you think that you are invading your child's privacy by using a program like this, remember that it is your job as a parent to protect your child from his or her own self as long as you can. you only have 18 years to make a difference in you kids life and i will do what ever it takes to save their lives. he has no resentment towards me."

I caught her just in time...
"McGruff SafeGuard has been a valuable tool for me for the past couple of months. I am the mother of two teenage girls, 13 and 16. The world is a scary place...so many dangers. Kids today don't realize how dangerous their choices and the influence of friends can be. They are invincible. Nothing can happen to them...after all.. "everybody else does it." My oldest daughter had been experimenting with marijuana. I caught her just in time. With McGruff SafeGuard on my computer and constant vigilance I have been able to monitor where her head is at and what she is up to. I have also been able to monitor where her friends' heads are and what they are up to. I have realized which friends I need to keep her away from. I caught my daughter taking a stroll down the wrong path just in the nick of time. McGruff SafeGuard has played a big role in helping me get her back on the right path and keeping her there. I would recommend this product to anyone."

The feeling of safety has won me over...
"Let me start by saying this is the best $30.00 I have ever spent. I have two stories to share. The first is a happy one for any parent to know. My son a freshman in HS goes to a roller rink every Fri. I'm not clueless I know the drugs are there but you just hope your kids not the one. My son came home early one night and wouldn't say why he just seem mad. Later I checked the chat checker to find out why he was mad. He was mad because some of his friends went and left to do drugs. He wrote to his other friend that they were a waste of his time and he was not going to go with them again. I was so happy to read this message. Another time some kids were going to have a sleep over and he added that his parents would not be home. It was good to know that and put a stop to the sleep over. I felt a little guilty when I first put it in but the feeling of safety has won me over as well as the other people I have told about this. I hope you can get the word out to other parents and still keep the kids in the dark about your product. It is nice that they don't know it is there. Thank you again."

It really helps me...
"I saw on one boys response to my child that he told his parents he needed 15 dollars to go to the movies, but it would be used to by 2 "zanny's" (Xanex) at $7.00 a piece and $1.00 for a bottle of liquor. I learned to have passes for the theater and give my child a movie pass, or if he wants money for McDonalds, I purchased a Golden Arch card and give him that to use. It really helps me in implementing strategies that may not necessarily stop some inappropriate behavior, however, I can put up some roadblocks and make things more difficult."

Now we can get him help with drugs...
"When my 15 year old step-son decided that he was going to go and party at a girls house with srooms (I guess the magic mushrooms) and skip school with her, We were able to stop it. It is nice to know what is going on when he tries to hide things. Since he is on probation we don't want to have any other problems. Plus now we can get him help with drugs since he is trying stuff that can cause problems.
Thanks so very much."
