OK article on an important subject. Towards the end the editor missed the part where the writer confused Sprint with Verizon: Sprint offers "Safety Check" and Verizon has geographical locator capabilities.
I am all for protecting our children in every way possible. It needs to be made clear that these services should not be the only solution. Kids lose things all the time, and with todays phones having sim cards kids are apt to trade phones with their friends. Bottom line is these services can only be used to locate the phone. If your child is in actual danger you can only hope they have not been separated from their possessions.

I want a GPS microchip to insert into my kids. Forget the phone or the watch. I want it right in their hip.

If you want to track your kids' geographical location you can use iphone's "find my friends" just download the app on both yours and your kid's iphones and set it up' it's easy.
If you don't want them to know you're tracking them you can use "find my phone", but only if you know their apple id password, download the app to their phone "in case they lose it" and then you can see the phone's location whenever you want.

I think it would be better if you get access to her mobile phone, because it is more mobile, it is always with her and most of the conversations and chats are on the phone, not on the ipad.
what kind of phone does she have?
