Chaperone service allows you to identify your child's location using Global Positioning Service technology. It also allows you to keep tabs on your child by using your computer. This is a huge step in cell phone safety for kids, but some forget that chaperone service tracks the cell phone itself, not the child. The system will only work if a child takes the cell phone with them. The key to making chaperone service an effective tool is to build the cell phone into your child's daily routine. Having him or her call you at a specified time each day when they are away from the house helps get you both into the routine, and helps kids and cell phones stay together.
