Would you be ok with your child having a tracking chip in him and/or her just in case she/he is abducted or gets lost?
As long as I/my family has control of it. Maybe the police but that's all.
My autistic son who has very limited verbal skills and tends to wander- you bet I would.
That is the scariest thing I've ever heard.
Well I was trying to think of the idea...I was seeing if it will sell
In one if their belongings, sure, but in them, hell no! That's creepy!
ID chip yes. Tracking chip no
It sounds good on the surface, but the problem is hacking. I mean, realistically, someone could hack a modern day pacemaker and kill a person. If someone found a way to hack these, then it could be bad news for a lot of kids. Makes me uneasy.
Not surgically implanted, I have the tracking receiver. No other person or govt organization gets it.
Sounds good to me
That I might consider.
I won't even chip my dog.
I don't know. It sounds like a great idea on the surface in case something tragic happens.
That's what I kinda think too..I mean if it was a company in charge or maybe even yourself like how we have iPhone trackers
Yeah, we have a tracker on our car that we can look at online at anytime. That would be great. the problem is when would you tell your kid, hey, uh guess why you have? Lol. That wouldn't be a fun time.
Ya lol. It's kinda a creepy idea though
I would never let my parents do that. If the kid wanted it, that's another story. But what happens if they want it removed?
A friends of a friend's daughter went missing. Very bad outcome.
Her name was Brooke Wilburger. There were a lot of stories about this on TV.
Yeah, that happens, it's horrible. I still wouldn't want to have "Find my iPhone" functionality on a living person. Perhaps a removable, small, device they implant in their shoes or hidden in an earring.
Ok..I have a serious question to democrats. Not putting you down but any question that comes around with giving up your info etc you're ok with..why is this?! Lol
No, I wouldn't. That goes to a far too creepy point for me.
In a nano second. I dog has one.
Heck no, techno!
Hell no. What if thing backfires and they can find me back?
Somebody actually told me my oldest son reminded them of the "Ransom of Red Chief" The nerve of some people.
I would not ask them to do it. Serious invasion of privacy. But if they decided after hearing pros, cons & discussing with us, I will support them. I believe if properly explained & discussed, kids can make right decisions that need to be respected.
No - now it's time for me to be paranoid - can you imagine what the government could do with THAT information
Even if a separate company was in charge of it or yourself maybe? Like when we put tracking chips in our animals?
No - do you remember the TV show the West Wing? They successfully predicted that the "next decade" - now - would be about privacy rights - I think we have to be REALLY careful about what we are willing to give up in the name of security.
And last time I checked - Verizon was a separate company
I agree just asking ur opinion
Well - with me - when you ask - you get - LOL
Looks like you have a girl there sjr.
I don't get it? Lol
In your pic srj :P
Oh I wish
I liked her a ton but she's in Montana. We're good friends
You'll get one.
I hope soooooooo. Kris will marry me if things don't work out. I want 3 children. 2 boys 1 girl. Make it happen!
It's a joke ;)
Or is it....
Dude, as long as you handle the female child and allow 4 more boys, you have a deal :P
They have to be baptized catholic too :)
Oh my gosh Srj! I think I love you right now just for telling Kris that!
Kris will conform :)
Me? Confirm? Nope!
Kris..Jesus and God love you no matter what. Now go to church with me
Now I'm wondering, is she Catholic too?
We'll work it out. I'm kinda hungry dear. Make me a sandwich? :)
Ill make you a knuckle sandwich.
Knuckle sandwich FTW.
Aww so sweet. Thanks deary! :) lol
