Accept Primary Parent Responsibilities

Parents living in separate homes may wish to change which Parent is in charge of Shared Parenting. The first Parent (the Primary Parent) has the exclusive rights to add or remove other Shared Parents, edit a Child's details, and add a Childs' mobile Devices for monitoring. 

When the Primary Parent gives the role to one of the other Parents, the other Shared Parent uses the following steps to accept the responsibilities.

On the other Parent's Android phone or tablet:

  1. Open your email and find the invitation email
  2. Tap I ACCEPT
  3. Your web browser will open up
    Tap ACCEPT

Primary Parent Functions

You can now access the Primary Parent functions from the Family Zone app. The other Parent no longer has access to the Primary Parent functions.

On your Android phone and tablet:

  1. In Family, tap on your Child's name
  2. Tap Edit
  3. MOve down to SHARED PARENTING
  4. Tap Done after you have made any desired changes

You can edit your Child's details, add your Child's mobile Devices to be monitored, and add or remove other Shared Parents.
