HOUSTON, Texas -- You've never heard of Sharon Standiford, but if your child has ever ignored a call from you on their cell phone, you're going to want to thank her.
She was tired of getting the digital brush off from her kids so she spent months developing a new app called Ignore No More.
It cost $1.99 and this is how it works: If your kid is ignoring your phone calls, you can lock their phones no matter how far away they are, with a password of your choosing.
The only way your child will be able to unlock their phone is to call their parents and ask for the password.
So, no more "it was on vibrate!" when you can't reach your kid.
Standiford's teenage son, Bradley, said he is only "half proud" of his mom.
To quote Bradley, "Umm..well, I thought it was a good idea..but for other people..not me."
Right now this is only available on android phones.
