Hello I just got my 11 year old his first iPhone we are both running iOS 12. I have setup parental controls and I have added his iCloud account to my phone for find my iPhone. Is there a way I can receive his messages when he receives them due to his age I don't want anything inappropriate. Thanks in advance,

Just out of curiosity, what will u do if he receives an unappreciated message?
Will the sender then be blacklisted? But what if they do dirty talk? Or if he draws a p...enis on let’s say paper? :oops:
