(Scroll down for video) A mother has invested an app that is able to shut down children’s cell phones if they ignore their parents’ phone calls.

Sharon Standifird of Houston, Texas, built the “Ignore No More” app that extracts a cruel punishment on a teen who has the nerve to ignore a parent.

When a call is ignored, the app immediately assumes that the child is refusing to answer. Consequently, the parent can then use the app to lock the child’s phone.

The child can only unlock it by getting a secret code from the parent.

Standifird said that she was so sick of being ignored by her son that she decided to sit down with him and have a frank discussion about why he was ignoring her phone calls.

That is when she decided to take action. “I have to develop an app that shuts your phone completely,” she said. Standifird said that with the app, her son now answers her calls and texts more efficiently.
