Too Much Safety?

Anybody here have a Brickhouse Child Locator?

Or am I overly paranoid?

personally, I think that is a bit overly paranoid. It's less embarrassing than the leash though.
I might change my mind if my kid becomes more of a wanderer though.

No, you are not paranoid. It's scary to be in a crowd sometimes with small children. You'd put Lojack on your car, why not your most valuable posession?

I have two small children, and if they're not holding my hand in a crowd I'm holding them in my arms. This leash stuff is hilarious.

Also make sure they know what to do IF you do get seperated. When we go to Disney for example Abi (she's 7 now) knows and has always known that she can go to the people in uniform and ask for help. We also bought her a child id bracelet that has a tag inside that has our cell numbers, and her allergy info on it. http://www.mypreciouskid.com/child-id-bracelet.html
She is aware that if she is lost or seperated from us that she can show that to someone in uniform and they will contact us. We've never had to use it, but it gives me peace of mind. I also take a picture of her each day before we leave the room, so I can show them a picture of her and what she is wearing, just in case.

I lost the older one in Costco. Well, I was in charge of the newborn in the cart, and mom was supposed to be watching the then 4 year old... lol, they found her at the entrance trying to leave the store. Pretty fucking scary.

I bet it was scary. A friend was at Disney last year and her son then 8 decided he didn't want to watch the street show anymore so he walked off. He found a bench to sit on several hundred yards away. The family was freaking out, he was as calm as could be. He was in sooooo much trouble when they found him.

Being the parent of a preteen.... Where can I find one and does it have GPS?

Gun cleaning party at my house when she has her first date, bring your arsenal, all invited

The right way is not always the popular and easy way. Standing for right when it is unpopular is a true test of moral character

When you have one walking and the other in a stroller it's not easy to protect both. Think "grab & run". Scary.

I'll get one when we have our first. But nothing beats a well trained GSD for the security of your family. Well that a gun in a fingerprint safe, good luck and prayer.

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

I think Spring allows you to buy some family tracking plan for like $5 a month so you can track all the phones on a family plan. I think it uses cell tower triangulation or something.

Just a realist. The dog will buy enough time to get the gun, and is already trained for Wilderness SAR and to track.
