Follow That Kid

This article both comforts and scares the crap out of me:

Follow That Kid

I like the idea of how easy it would be to keep track of my kids if needed, but I also don't like how much technology has infringed on our lives. I'm the first to admit that I openly embrace technology and would use it to improve the quality of our lives, but I guess this much "big brother" type tech stuff, makes me wonder how many parents will start to rely on it to keep track of and monitor their children rather than the traditional communication routes.

I'm all for tracking your children's internet usage and letting them have a closely monitored cell phone (one that they CANNOT run the minutes up on and text as much as they want), but the whole GPS thing kind of blows my mind. Of course, I don't have a 17 year old about to drive on her own for the first time either. That might change my tune.....
