Our teenagers are battling for their independence, and with age comes responsibility. 


They can worry us sick but we ultimately have to trust them when they leave the house, to be honest about where they are going and what they're doing...Or, should we take a leap out of Jamie Oliver's book?

The celebrity chef has recently revealed that he uses technology to keep up with his daughters.


"We use an app to keep track of our kids' whereabouts," he said.


"The older girls, Jools and I are all on an app called Life360, which means we can see exactly where everybody is and the route they've gone," he told Woman Magazine.


"So if one of the girls says, 'I'm going to Camden Town' and I can see they've gone to Reading, then we have a problem," he added.

However, it is a level playing field in the Oliver household, as the dad-of- four's movements can be monitored by his teens.


"They can check on me, too, and see how fast I'm driving. It's brilliant," he explained.


Jamie shares 16-year-old Poppy, Daisy, who is 15, nine-year-old Petal, Buddy, who's seven, and two-year-old River - with his wife Jools.

The couple have been together for 18 years and the chef gushed over her during the interview.


"I like watching Jools get older. I love her more now than I ever have before," he said.


"I feel like my love widens and I'm enjoying her evolving as a woman, growing older. I like it - her wrinkles have been earned."
