child tracking

Keeping tabs on children via electronic means. For some time, parents have employed tracking systems that identify the location of their child's vehicle at all times; however, equipment has to be installed in the car, and the child has to use that car. With smartphones, child tracking has become more sophisticated. As long as the children have the smartphone in their possession, parents have more options than just location (see below). See tracking.
