A GPS for Kids: Creepy or Clever?
In the event you get separated from your child, you can instantly rely on GPS child tracking services to determine the location of your child - whether it's at a park, a mall or a fair. For older children, cell phones with GPS devices have a few benefits. Not only can they use the phone in the event of an emergency, the phone also relies on GPS technology that can be used in the event your child can't be located. Of course, some experts disagree about the concept. They worry that parents can make their children become fearful. The use of GPS tracking might also create friction between adults and teens who are hungry for a little freedom. If used for the wrong pretenses, children will grow up learning they can't trust overbearing parents. Basically, if parents want to invest in GPS technology, experts believe it should be used in emergencies -- not as a way of acting like a helicopter parent.
