    Well, I am fluent in Russian, after all.

    Actually, I thought you were making a "gay" referrence about homosexuals being deviant, sounds like you were not, my bad then. I was not being a grammar Nazi.

    And are you telling me that if you will be put in a situation to make a choice: to sacrifice your dog, or your daughters, you would choose to sacrifice your daughters?

You sound like the type of person that lives in a bubble.

    If your kids are doing things like that, then perhaps you need to do a better job of raising them instead of expecting a machine to do it for you.

    I can't. This is important.

    If your kid finds out about the hidden GPS (which they probably will if you call them out on doing something they weren't supposed to do), they'll never trust you again. If people would raise their kids properly, then maybe they wouldn't NEED to resort to gross invasions of their kids' privacy.

    Re: Should parents use a GPS tracking device to monitor their children?

    I think that this will probably become a safety tool that could be misused, in the future. The first application of this technology that came to my mind was not that it could "monitor" a child but it could certainly help a parent know where their child is at all times. In cases where children go missing it could naturally be very helpful. But there are some serious implications to this kind of thing and IMO there is no easy answer to this one.

    Criminals should have the GPS implanted, only if we know this works.
    But, our children, NO!

    You know if your child (anyone for that matter) has a cell phone, you can track their location using certain services available to the public? Does this make you evil?

    If you actually use that service? Yes.
