- When and why to use the app:

Have you ever had trouble disciplining your child as he or she refuses to do what you tell him/her to do? In such a case, a phone call from a virtual third party telling the child that he/she is not behaving himself/herself can redirect the child's attention and change his/her consciousness. When it makes the child begin to do voluntarily what he/she is told to do, it is very important for you to tell him/her carefully why he/she got the call. Rewarding the child with a lot of words of praise and encouragement will lead to building a favorable behavior pattern.

The "Ghost Call" app is not designed to surprise the child. Rather, it is designed to redirect his/her attention and change his/her consciousness. Please use the app as one of child-rearing support tools by selecting a scary or sweet character depending on the child's disposition or the situation faced.

1.

When he/she wouldn't listen to you 

(Red Ogre)
