When we lived in California I was always worried about the safety of my family members. Just too much was going on around me. I wanted my children to have some freedom to be with their friends and do fun teenage things, but their safety was always on my mind. It was hard sometimes to let them go with their friends and be a teenager. The mall was the worst. So when we moved here to upstate, they enjoyed a little more freedom but I’m sure I made them crazy always wanting to be sure they were where they were supposed to be. This app would have been perfect for me.
