I don't know if anyone else out there feels the way I do.. However, today I had a customer ask me about the phones which support gps functions so you can see where your child is at all times. I could not say anything professionally however, I wanted to tell her that, if she doesn't trust her daughter (who seemed to be around 10), then her daughter should not be going out alone. I have never been close to my parents, and I often disagree with them.. However, one thing I firmly agree with them about is the believe that if you need a gps in your kids car because, you can't trust them to go where they claim they are going, then they do not need a car. The cellphone situation is very similar.. If you can't trust your kid to go where they are suppose to.. they don't need to be going out. I absolutely detest people using technology as a collar for their children. I do not have children myself.. so I suppose it is easier for me to say this without worrying if my kid could be at any time abducted... I would like the opinions of more of you out there. I know a lot of people are a fan of these things otherwise it wouldn't exist.. However, I am glad my parents never forced me to have a gps tracking system on my phone, put a limiter on my car or tracked me.. Now they did always tell me to call them anytime I went anywhere however, in all fairness they always call eachother before going to the store, leaving work ect for safety reasons. (IE if one of them got in an accident on the way home from work, the other would know something is up when the other person didn't arrive within some reasonable timeframe).
