LoJack Your Kid

For kids, lying about their whereabouts is about to get waaaay harder.


There's a new gizmo on the market that allows parents to know when and where their kid is -- at all times. Here's how it works: a parent stashes a portable GPS tracker in their kids' backpack or teens' car. Then, from any computer, you have a bird's eye view of where your child is at all times, with updates every 10 seconds. You can even watch a playback of every single place they've been for the last 90 days.

The PT-10 tracker ain't cheap -- it's $349, with a monitoring fee of $39.99 per month.

Would you LoJack your little one?

I think it’s a GREAT idea. I’m sure Madeline McCann’s mom, or Natalee Holloway’s mom, or the mother of any missing child for that matter, wishes their kids would have had one.

I would in a heartbeat. In fact I have been researching it a bit and have found a couple of different devices that would work ok, even though they are for pets or cars. It’s just unfortunate that they are so expensive, making it a bit out of my reach for both of my kids. They are in preschool and Kindergarten and for them to be out there so young while I’m at work where I can’t have secure knowledge in their whereabouts, makes me nervous. I would feel better knowing I can check to see where they are whenever I feel the need. Hopefully they will be able to make something a bit more affordable for more people to purchase them.

Anyone remember that Wu-Tang song about implants (tracking devices inserted in your earlobes), well…of course not for me, LOL but hell yes for my kids. I’d implant them with permanent tracking devices UNDER their skin if I could. Screw in the backpack, or even under a car. And I’m totally serious.
(I’ve been thinking this since I had my first one 12 years ago!)

There are some fascinating time limits in this article however I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There is some validity but I’ll take maintain opinion until I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as nicely
