This dad is a genius!

His name is Nick Herbert and he developed a phone app that forces your kid to answer your texts.

The app is called ReplyASAP and here is how it works. When the parent sends their teen a text, the app freezes the phone and even sounds an alarm if the phone is on silent mode forcing your kid to answer you if they want access back into their phone.

So, uh.... parents I don't know what you are waiting for. DOWNLOAD!

Take a look at the original announcement HERE.
