GPS on children?

If you could have GPS on your kids, would you? I'm not talking about an implant or anything... I saw a watch that has GPS for kids. YOu can set "safe zones" and you get an email or text message if they go outside the zone or if they take it off. Would you buy something like this?

  • YES. I would even implant it. We microchip our pets.... Why not our kids?

  • THAT sounds reasonable actually...though any REAL trouble and the watch would probably get ditched...
    but up until the teen years, I think that is a great idea, for safety!

  • I could see doing that until they are a certain age.

  • I could see getting one, but than again, once they reach a certain age, they'll refuse to wear it or ditch it, and when they're too young to do that i think you should know where they are anyways. If they were in any certain major danger, as in kidnapped or something, this would probably be no help if it got ditched, but i guess if it looked like a normal watch, maybe they wouldn't think twice about leaving it on?!? Idk the thought of having to ever really use it is scary i guess...

  • Nope, I have no reason to lojack my kids.  I trust them to use their brains when they are out and about, to stay out of trouble and to come home when it gets dark.
