The Houston, Texas, mom could not get her teenagers to return her calls, so she taught herself how to develop an app and came up with Ignore No More.
"We need to develop an app that just shuts their phone completely down and they can't even use it," Standifird told ABC13. "I got on the internet and I literally just started researching how to develop an app."
Ignore No More is available for Android only, though Standifird is working on an iOS version. It costs $1.99. Once parents download it, they can take control of their kids apps by locking their phones until they return a call.
