For children that are prone to wander, a Personal GPS Tracker is not just a good idea, it is very quickly proving to be an essential safety tool.
The fact that Personal GPS Trackers are now so affordable, easy to use, small and lightweight means that parents with children of all ages and stages are insisting that they carry a kids tracker to further improve their safety.
There are so many exterior safety risks and threats that a child can face on a daily basis. Combine this with the fact that any child has the ability to 'wander' or 'bolt' at any time/location means that anything that can make your child's life safer is critical.
When a child goes missing for whatever reason, time is of the absolute essence. Seconds count and seconds can also seem like hours when your child is out of your sight.
No matter how prepped your children are, they can always be at risk due to their young curious minds, inquisitive natures and developing sense of direction/environment.
What's been wonderful about our Personal GPS trackers is that they are discrete and easy to carry.
They can either be concealed in bags, clothing, pockets, or clipped proudly on a bag or belt loop as a fashion accessory!
Due to colour, shape and lightweight nature, we have been receiving very positive reports from parents, and it seems to be a common consensus that children are happy to carry their trackers- and have quickly integrated them in to their everyday lives and activities.
KERRY EVANS has two energetic girls, at early primary school age. They have been using their Personal trackers consistently for the last 18 months.
Having 2 young girls who are close in age is a lot more work. They are either fighting each other or working together to make life very hard for myself and my husband!
Despite being such a handful, we have raised them to understand the external dangers when they leave the front door. Whether this is with one of us, at school or with another relative the girls are clear on the dangers and appreciate the risks that could be around every corner.
But at the end of the day, they are still kids. And kids tend to day dream and have an adventurous imagination.
As they are getting older there are an increasing number of times when they are not with us. Whether this is school, dance class, friends houses, we have to put trust in other people quite often to keep our children safe.
This is why knowing they have their personal trackers with them is a big comfort to us.
We are yet to have a heart stopping experience where we need the trackers in an emergency, but the added comfort from knowing they have them in their pockets is immeasurable.
There are people who are sceptical that a tracker is used as a 'substitute babysitter', and I'll be honest, I had this view before I actually researched the purpose behind them.
But the reality is that these are an incredible additional tool in our strict approach to parenting. It just makes sense to us that, as well as embedding a strict safety education in to our kids, having them carry these devices is a no brainer when you think of how much safer it can make your kids.
We know if anything was ever to happen, being able to check on our phones instantly where they are is so important. If you just think for a second about what that offers, its crazy to think you wouldn't use something like this to protect your children- especially as its so easy to use.
Kerry's oldest daughter has had a ProPod 4 for the last 18 months. This is a live GPS tracker that allows you to monitor location through our free app on your phone.
You can also set up safety zones around home, school or any after school clubs. If your child leaves without you knowing then you will receive an instant alert to your phone.
For her youngest daughter, Kerry has our newest personal SOS tracker. It has 2 way communication in an emergency, and allows her to phone Kerry by pressing the SOS button on the front. It also has GPS locate and safety zone features.
Even at a young age kids are more image conscious now than they ever have been. Since carrying their trackers my girls have been nagging less for their own mobile phones. Their trackers seem to fulfil their tech accessory needs and they show them off at dance class. So many parents have said what an incredible idea they are, and have asked for Trackershop's details to get their own.
