Should You Use Your Phone To Track Your Kids on Halloween?

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Are you planning to personally keep an eye on your kids this Halloween as they go door to door? Or are you comfortable using a cell-phone-based GPS tracker?

MyEyewitnessNews.com, based in Memphis, TN, spoke with Jane Schneider, editor of Memphis Parent, about the new “Trick-or-Tracker” Android app ($9.99) that allows parents to monitor their children’s whereabouts. (Of course, any GPS tracker will do the same thing. You don’t need one specifically designed for Halloween.)

What do you think about this? Would you use one? Do you think parents are shirking their responsibilities by using a tracker? Or is it a handy high-tech tool for today’s parents?

Check out the article and the interview with Schneider, then let us know what you think.
