When your teenage son goes wandering off with his friends (say at a sports event) and within 5 minutes you hear police sirens... call his cellphone and ask him what he is doing. If after hanging up a little while later you happen to hear more sirens and he doesn't call you... call him again.
RESULT= By nights end any siren he hears he will immediately call you (great checking in ploy btw) and assure you that the police are not coming for him or any of the friends he is with! This saves you the trouble of having to remember to track his behind down periodically and ask where he is, what he is doing, if he's with the same group of friends, if they are being good and what time he'll be home... because... wait for it... he called YOU. That entitles you to ask as many questions as necessary to achieve personal anxiety relief.
