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.

Hey Corporate Sponsors! How About a Little Halloween $$$ Help This Year?

Friday, October 24th, 2008

trick or treating in the marina district of sa...Jen Singer has the right idea. As the owner of the first house on a VERY popular street for trick-or-treaters, Jen is looking for a little “Halloween bailout” from corporate America to help sponsor the huge pile of candy she’ll be buying soon. In fact, I’ll let her make her pitch right here.

OK, all you companies out there. I’m betting that if you stop by MommaSaid.net and agree to add an extra zero or two to that check, Jen will even let you put up a few yard signs. So be generous. After all, have you priced a bag of Mars bars lately?
