10 Gadgets and Apps to Keep Your Kids Safe
As every parent knows, it’s a dangerous world out there. Whether it’s a pedophile lurking in the aisles at Walmart, a cyber bully on Facebook or a case of SIDs that strikes in the crib, your child is in danger at every age.
As a new father, I worry about all the bad things that could happen to my young son both now and when he gets older. As a geek, I look to technology to solve the problem. Here are 10 tech tools I found that can help keep your kids safe.
Mommy I'm Here Child Locator ($24.95)
My son just started crawling and, if I take my eyes off of him for a minute, he's on the other side of the livingroom playing with things he shouldn't touch.. Pretty soon, he'll be walking and we'll have trouble keeping up with him in public places. Losing a child in a crowd is every parents' worst nightmare.
For just $25, the Mommy I'm Here Child Locator comes with two pieces: a cute teddy-bear shaped device that attaches to your child's ankle or wrist and a keychain transmitter for parents to hold. When you get separated from your kid at Toys R' Us, you simply hit a button on the transmitter and the child's anklet will emit a loud shrieking sound so you can easily find her.
