Default GPS questions BB family needs help!!

Please Login to Remove!

I have a blackberry 8830 world edition. My wife and kids have the Curve. My question is this I want to be able to know where my kids are at all times. Is there a application or a tool to where I can know where my children are at all times via GPS ? I know it probably sounds bad but I like to know where they are while they live under my roof. Thank you in advance for your help.

Web-Based GPS Tracking

You will need to upgrade them to a 8310/8800/8820 with built in GPS though.

Or

Switch them to Sprint blackberries and use Sprint Family locator.

Or

Realize that keeping tabs on their every move isnt healthy to you or them.

EDIT: argh, beaten.

Technology is great, but it doesn't take the place of common sense and trust. I have 2 children and when they were growing up and out and about, I trusted that they be smart enough to not go where they shouldn't go and not do the things they shouldn't do. Knowing where they are, or where the BB is for that matter, isn't really going to make a lot of difference. They are going to do what they are going to do no matter what.

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.
