When you say monitor, what exactly are you wanting to do, listen to the phone conversations, or just check numbers? Are you wanting to read text messages, or just see numbers where they are coming from?
Most cellular carriers provide information about numbers used for calls and numbers from text messages, however with iMessage, that uses data and cannot be tracked. You would not be able to listen to phone calls. If you are looking for that much control on the device, it sounds as if the daughter should not even have the device.
Some cellular carriers also provide parent controls that will allow you to disallow calls/texts from certain numbers as well. You would need to check with the carrier about that.
