With today technology, it is enable parents to know exactly where their
children are. GPS technology offers an exciting new means by which
parents can ascertain their children's whereabouts at all times.

A deep seated concern for children is instinctive. It's the reason so
many parents have spent late evenings pacing the floor waiting for a
teenager to return home. And the cause of lingering concerns when a child
is away.

The concerns also make a great deal of practical sense. Children are too
often victimized in today's society, so the ability to check on a child's
whereabouts at all times can be a great asset. And children, knowing that
their whereabouts are being tracked, encourages them to behave properly.

GPS technologies offer a great means by which parents can determine where
their children are at any given moment. Tracking via GPS makes the old
question "Do you know where your children are?" easily answerable, rather
then just being rhetorical. GPS systems were developed by the government
for intelligence and surveillance purposes. An array of satellites allows
one to determine with amazing specificity the exact location of any
person carrying a tracking device.

This seemingly futuristic gadgetry is readily available today, with new
products featuring GPS tracking technology being developed regularly.
Tracking devices can be as simple as wristwatches or cellular phones
equipped with an appropriate chip. Other manufacturers are experimenting
with plastic phone sleeves, necklaces, backpack tags and other possible
chip carrying accessories.
These devices can be given to a child, making information regarding their
whereabouts immediately available to their parents. Generally, parents
are able to log in to a provider maintained website and can get the
location information with only a few keystrokes.

These devices can be programmed to operate in any number of ways. Some
will simply track locations of children. Others can be programmed to
alert parents in cases when a child leaves established "safe zones". The
different ways of using the tracking process can be customized to how
much information you want, general vicinity vs. an almost exact location.
Or anything in between.

Tracking children with GPS technology is an inviting proposition. Any
parent who has experienced the fear of "losing" a child in a crowd, or
who simply finds themselves worrying about a child's well-being during
travel, will find relief in the ability of knowing their child's
whereabouts at any time.

The tracking with GPS also allows parents to encourage positive
behaviors. Children who know they can be tracked are far less likely to
engage in irresponsible or forbidden acts. There's no guarantee that GPS
tracking will stop a teen from involving themselves in an ill advised
"road trip", but it does give kids a potent reason to think twice before
acting.

As new products become available and competition continues to force the
price of GPS child tracking systems down, there is no doubt that use of
GPS will skyrocket. This satellite technology offers parents a very
effective means of enhancing child safety.
