Tools for the Digital Parent — Monitor Your Kid by GPS

Japan Today – News – GPS-mounted blazers enable parents to locate kids – Japan’s Leading International News Network Japan Today has a story about a school uniform maker in Japan who is selling school uniforms equiped with GPS tracking chips. Forget about your child’s privacy rights for a second, as a parent I think that this is a great idea. While certainly someone could always abandon the child’s blazer with the chip in it, it could help. Although my children are still very young, when something the equivalent of Network Car that will let me track their whereabouts becomes available here in the U.S. I’ll jump to buy it. Thanks, Gizmodo!

    My kids are 6 and 3 and I reckon they should be implanted at birth and can only be removed at year 18. especially since I have 2 girls!!!

    They should put in an optional shock feature for parents who still believe in spankings, but their kids are teenagers.
