Tracking kids


This is a cool GPS device.  It is called the Amber Alert GPS 2G. It is an extra-small tracker that kids can wear or carry in a pocket.  The device sends a text message to the parents' cell phone, so the parents can know where their child is.  Or, the parent can get on the Internet and track, with maps, where their child is. 

If a child is in trouble, there is a little S.O.S. button that can be pushed. It has a microphone, so if the child was kidnapped, the parents could listen to voices or any sound that is around the child.


Prices start at $200.
