That parental panic that kicks in whenever a while is out of sight without mom or dad knowing where they are is something to which every parent can related.
Now technology has parent's backs by stepping in to help parents be in two places at once.
You can purchase some new apps and tech to give you peace of mind. Below, WBTV's cyber expert Theresa Payton shares her advice and shows us some apps and technology that she likes:
Types of Tracking:
Tracking devices. Some look like a watch or a pin but they essentially track the wearer's whereabouts and some offer additional features.
Setting boundaries. Have a rule of "don't cross the street!"? You can set up a digital fence – think doggie invisible fence meets kids' safety.
Panic Buttons/Alerts. Some of the wearable technology offers a panic button that can be pressed to automatically send a distress signal
If your child is old enough to carry and use a smart phone, your device carrier will have safety tracking options that allow you to monitor there whereabouts and their digital tracks.
