How do you monitor your child’s cell phone or device?

My oldest daughter just got a cell phone. I am trying to figure out how best to monitor her activity on it. I am wondering how other parents handle this. If your child has a cell phone or other electronic device, what is your favorite way to monitor their activity on it?

    My kids have tablets, but they really only use them when either me or my husband are right there. Plus, I install and maintain all the apps, so they can't do anything too crazy.

    My kids don't have their own phone yet, but they take mine all the time! I check on what they are watching, which is usually YouTube, cartoons or something from Amazon Prime. Sometimes I will make them turn off videos/shows if I don't feel they are appropriate. My oldest will get a phone in a year or so, and then I will probably use some type of app that controls what he can watch.
