Is it justified to chip and track children for safety?

While parents can't be with their kids 24 hours a day, there's plenty of technology around that can track their children's every move without their knowing it.The second a kid isn't where he's supposed to be, a massive alert goes off, and the kid can be tracked down immediately. But is this technology an invasion of privacy? How much surveillance is justified? Is the world really such a dangerous place for these kids?

<p>No, chipping people (especially kids) is a very bad idea. First of all, this will turn children into radio-controlled walking dolls. They would have almost NO chance to even think on their own - their thoughts would be controlled by parental radio waves. Then, it actually depends on what kind of chip it is. If a chip is removable - then it&#39;s only by parents desire. If it&#39;s an implant - absolutely NO!!!</p>
