A survey about your childs safety

Hello, If you could please take this quick survey on a new product idea for a GPS tracking bracelet that also contacts authorities when needed it would be greatly appreciated!

Wow. I got as far as "locking clasp" and clicked off. That seems really invasive.

I guess I can see how this might be helpful for ensuring that convicted felons don't violate the terms of their parole while out in the community. As a device for children (and college students? Really?!) it's ridiculously paranoid and intrusive.

I can see how it would be appropriate for some people with special needs. For example, someone who is non-verbal, good with locks, and tends to run. It's a very small segment of the special needs population, as even most people with IQs in the intellectual disability range don't need this sort of thing to stay safe.
