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!
