Technology is nice, but trust is priceless! And having a tracking device doesn't tell me (or them) that you have that level of trust.
Just my opinion.
It also depends on how the kids are like. My parents trust me and I've had a lot of freedom since I was 16. I could go anywhere I want at anytime provided I have the money to do so. I suppose if I was doing drugs and committing crimes, then things would have turned out differently between me and my parents.
Trust is priceless, but sometimes it really depends on the circumstances.
