Sorry Candace for telling this story...
So this morning my friend Candace and I walked 3 miles on the bike path to the park with our kids in the jogging strollers. It was a great walk and it was such a nice day. While at the park we had 3 kids running around a busy jungle gym, but 2 sets of eyes on 3 kids can be hard when they don't stick together. At one point Nico (who is 2 and a half) tried to climb a ladder to get to the slides. Candace told him no and to go around to the stairs. Then a second later he vanished. We looked and looked. He was gone fast. He was no where to be found in the playground. A couple minutes pass and we are starting to panic when I spot him sitting at an empty picnic table eating someones lunch. It was funny. Everyone who had watched us looking for him started laughing when Candace had to go snatch a sandwich out of his mouth. Needless to say it was the end of our park outing.
It got me thinking though. Are child trackers worth their money? I looked up one version to see the cost. It would be $129 for the device and 9.99 a month subscription. Although we try our hardest to keep our eyes on our kids, do we need that kind of help? Am I just an over protective paranoid parent or is the world getting scarier? Something to consider I guess.
