When all else fails, create an app! In all honestly, this mom's kid must be pretty embarrassed that he didn't call her back when he needed to. 

 

So you're going to love this as much as your kids hate it.  A mom in Houston, Texas named Sharon Standifird has invented an app that FORCES your kid to call you back.

 

 

It's called Ignore No More.   It costs $1.99 and is only available for Android phones (for now).  When a parent calls their kid and the kid doesn't answer, the app locks their phone and only gives them two options:  Call their parent back or call 911.  That means they can't play games, listen to RadioPup, or text until they CALL YOU BACK!
