Parental Control - Getting out of hand?


bloodkilla87

Recommended Posts

Im sure we have all heard or seen about internet/t.v./video game parental controls, and sometimes that understandable. Im sure some of us have also heard about the micro chips put in cars to track kids. But when i was just watching the news, something blew my mind. Tracking devices on the bottom of shoes. Like seriously, what the [bleep]? When can we end all this. Think how these kids are going to grow up after being tracked, traced, held back and followed their entire lifes for any wrong doings.

 

 

 

And if your kid can drive, meaning they are atleast 16 years of age, do you really need to have a tracking device put in the car?

I guess it's because of how things are today. My mom said that she wouldn't have kids today, if she had the choice. Life is pretty messed up now. Kids in Gangs, killing other kids, shootings at school, stabbings, kids murdering their parents, doing drugs, fighting, etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am only 15 and I am wondering if I will even have kids. I REALLY want to be a parent, someday, and I am so worried about the future. If things get worse, I may not have kids. It's a price I am willing to pay for the future of our Earth.

There are some parents who are over the top. Another concern of mine is parents who let thier kids do anything and associate with anyone which inevitably lets thier kids get into gangs, drugs, violence etc.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There needs to be a middle ground. The government should regulate parenting. :anxious: :lol: :P .

Am I the only one who realizes that no one in their right mind can afford these things to begin with, let alone maintain them?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They aren't smart anyways, all you need is a bug detector, which is like only $300. ::'

We're talking a few grand here, possibly more depending on range and size of the tracking device.

Yes it's gone too far and I'm glad I don't have any of that hard-to-remove software on my computer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's like trying to remove viruses without an antivirus program.

Trackers in your shoes...? That's a bit over the top, I'd say.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My parents aren't very restrictive of where I go, what I do, who I see. I can imagine it'd be pretty horrible to be clamped down like that by your parents; knowing they know where your car is, where you are, what's on your computer..

I go out for hours at a time by just telling my mum that i'm going to croydon so i guess it's fair but can't you do it with mobile phones?

I just had a thought. I think I'll call it the parenting standards equilibrium. Let me explain. As parents start getting worse and letting thier kids run off on various illegal and violent tangents, other parents begin to feel the need to make sure of thier kids wherabouts 24/7 to componsate for the shift in violent youths running a muck on our streets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yep, I think I've cracked it. :lol: :P

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I feel like such a nerd right now. :wall:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meh. What do you think anyway?

I think it's great...and you know why? same reason we should care less if the government is tracking our internet usage, phone calls etc....if you aren't doing anything wrong.....why would you care?

 

 

 

If my 13 yo daughter tells me she is going to the movies, and i log on to a site that tracks her shoes...and she is across town on the interstate.....knowing she had possibly been kidnapped/abducted by some sicko would be kinda helpful don't you think? watch the news much? seems like every night some piece of crap is snatching up some young teenager and running off with them...and it isn't to take them to the movies either.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

..or how about your son decides he has met the love of his life via the internet :roll: and jumps on a bus to go to kansas to meet up with "erica", who of course turns out to be 52 yo "eric"....being able to track him and turn that information over to the police could be nice don't you think?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...or your daughter is 15 yo or so and says she is staying over night at a friend's house, but in reality that friend's parents are gone for the night and your daughter and her friend are going across town to a college party at some guys house they heard about....sounds innocent enough right? I won't even bother to spell out what happens at these things....drugs, [bleep]ed drinks, forcible procreation...etc....checking up on her might save her having to go through that...and this EXACT situation was a call i went on as a reserve police officer, it was a noise complaint, we roll up in 2 cars with 4 officers and there was at least 200 ppl in this house, in the front and back yard...they scattered like bugs in the light when i loudly proclaimed "let's check their IDs and if they are underage, arrest them"..then we searched the house in an effort to find the owner so he could be cited and secure his/her house which had every single door wide open...we found 7 teenage girls hiding in various spots...oldest? 16 yo. Think about that for a sec. When we got ahold of the parents to come pick up their daughters, 6 were very concerned and had been told the standard lies...and were horrifed when we showed them the 6 kegs, over 40 large empty bottles of hard liquor, 4 bags with different amounts of pot, pills everywhere, several boxes of condoms, a porn video was playing on the large screen tv in the living room...quite a party...but not what the parents wanted their 13yo-16yo daughters at with 18-25 yo guys. The one other parent was a piece of crap, and actually threw us an attitude about why we were detaining her daughter (we arrested the daughter for refusing to identify herself...a misdemeanor crime in most states, and a mandatory arrest) she finally said who she was but that was after she was in custody. The parent didn't care and it was obvious her daughter was the product of that....sad really.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In closing...if you have nothing to hide, why would you care that your parents had the capability to "track" you? Now as far as 16 yo and having a license, privacy blah blah blah....i was 16yo with a license once, I know how my friends and I drove...I know the dumb things you do to impress one another......my son is 15 yo, when he turns 16, and wants to drive the car to the "mall", you can bet I would love to know if he was doing over 100 mph sometime during the trip...i could correct that behavior before he gets killed, or kills a family of five.

^ Most kids who know about internet safety know not to meet with someone on the internet. Even if they don't know anything about it there's still common sense.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Parental controls don't block just bad sites, but OK ones too, and I wouldn't be surprised if one blocked this site. And people do like their privacy on OK sites too. Ever wanted to keep your political, theological, ect beliefs to yourself? Ever disliked the thought of parents keylogging all your thoughts and passwords? Kids like privacy as well.

most and all is two seperate things....and you would be surprised how gullible young girls are.....my kids political/religious/theological etc beliefs are just that...theirs...however as a good parent, I want to know if he is logging into hate sites, racist rhetoric sites, sick maiming sites, how to build a bomb sites, 101 ways to kill your classmates sites etc......these would concern me, and I would correct that on the spot...ever heard of columbine, and a myriad of other stupid things kids do when they get disillusioned with reality and depressed? If their parents had been present in their lives more, they could have avoided that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's not that we want to censure you, it's that we want to protect you as your mind and beliefs are developing, if you go to far down a wrong path, sometimes it is to late to get them back on the right one. You may find this hard to believe, but you haven't figured out everything about life yet, and we want to protect you from yourself and the sickos out there....not smother, but just be present in your lives so we can step in if you fall off into the abyss :)

lordkrohn1626; you're more paranoid than my mum - and she's right up there with the tin-hat freaks sometimes :uhh:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

oh really lil one? 5 years ago when my daughter was 2 yo, we took her to a well known baby sitter couple who watched the neighborhood kids....nice clean house, well respected..everyone used them. the baby sitter went to the store and her husband watched my 2yo lil girl while she was gone "for just a minute or two", 6 months later she stumbled across a file she hadnt seen before on his computer, opened it and there was over 50 home made VIDEOS of him molesting children, including my daughter. Thankfully she turned him into the police, he got 17 years in a federal pen for my daughter......paranoid? you betcha. Ask the parents of the 50,000 plus child abductions a year about paranoia.....ask the young girl who went to a party and someone gave her a drink and that's all she remembers.....and now she's pregnant at 13 yo (my niece). The piece of crap who molested my daughter was the reason I went to the police academy and became a reserve officer, so I can help put ppl like that where they belong....you might want to pull off the blinders.....I go to calls you can't imagine...it IS a sick world.

Lol. I think there might be a new panic about these. Kinda like the cold war thing when people were afraid in USA and Russia that a nuke might drop on them at any moment. A lot of bogus companies sold stuff that were useless, etc. for nuclear protection.

One thing that alot of parents seem to miss is, that if you shelter your kids as much as most kids in the US are, they won't be able to make decisions on their own and will not end up as well adjusted young adults.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In my experience, the mothers in places like Argentina are much better parents because they don't have the resources (or any reason) to shelter their kids from from the rest of the world. If a kid is old enough to know not to get in a strangers car, the parents will not follow them around or even worry about them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although many parents would not like to admit it, the world is not a nice-happy-fun place. At some time or another their kids will have to learn that taking a beer handed to them by a stranger is not a good idea. Unfortunately, often times the only way kids will grasp this concept is when it happens to them and they think, "Oh, maybe this isn't as cool as it seemed".
