SuzyQ pretty much nailed it. You could set the devices up to sync Verizon Messages aka Messages+ to a computer.. but on an iPhone you have to turn off iMessage and a child would surely notice this and toggle it back on. Although I had my # sync'd with Messages+ and I signed into the web the other day and I recalled seeing a lot of my messages including some I didn't think would have sync'd.

If you setup FamilyBase it will not allow you to read the message but will email you who their top contacts are etc. My wife and I have this setup on my son's phone.. which also allows us to limit how much data he uses.

Hope this helps somewhat.

One way (and the only sure way) - take the phone and read them directly  on the phone periodically.  Of course, that depends on the age of the kids and your relationship as to how that works out.  When my kids were teens and had phones, that was one of the "rules" - I had access to their phone whenever.

Verizon Messages will sync messages to a computer or tablet, but sends a confirmation code to the phone before the sync will begin.  And it only works with standard texts, not iMessages, or other chat apps.  Those apps use data for messaging and you can't see that content other than on the phone itself.
