Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Tracking for Questionable Parents

I've been reading lately about the father who killed his 2 1/2 year old son to avoid paying child support.  This, to me, is absurd and tragic.  From my understanding, the man was never into the father role much, so suspicions should have already been heightened when he took the child for visitation, but I don't know the whole story.
I do know that I would not be letting any dead beat dad (or mom) take my children without some way of tracking their where abouts.  Would it be overprotective to have such parent's vehicle equipped with a GPS Tracking device?  I don't think so.  What about divorced parents with shared custody?  Wouldn't it give you peace of mind if all parents with any type of shared custody or visitation were forced to have  GPS tracking installed for the other to monitor?  I think this would be a fantastic idea and should be implemented.  If Daddy decides to take the kiddies to his favorite strip club to" watch the game", you would know.  If Mommy decides to hit Happy hour just before picking up the kids from school, you would know (or at least suspect).
I can think of many ways GPS tracking could be beneficial and life saving.  Heck, I think any one living in inclimate weather should have one.  I know if I went off the road (which has happened before), it would be comforting to know that someone could find me...once they realized I was missing.
