Want your rebellious teenager to hate you just a little bit more? This new app could do the trick.

Parental punishments have officially gone digital.

Ignore No More is an app created by a Texas mother, Sharon Standifird, that allows parents to lock their child’s phone with a simple four-digit code. While the phone is locked the child can’t call anyone except for you and the police.

Yep, for just $1.99 you can control your kid’s life in and outside of the house.

What if the tech savvy teenager wises up and tries to deactivate the device?

The phone will automatically lock and send the parent an email saying, “WARNING CHILD TAMPERING WITH IGNORE NO MORE!”
