Full of words like ‘ridiculous’, ‘trust’ and ‘over-the-top.’
I would have vented about society and how much it had changed. I would have said we need to, “Let kids be kids“, and that technology wasn’t the answer.
I might have even invoked the, “In my day” phrase.
(Right before I dusted off my souvenir teaspoons and put in my hair rollers.)
But I am nothing if not adaptable and I have done a full 180.
Well I had kids.
Today, Bruce and Denise Morcombe have thrown their support behind a new app designed to allow parents to track their children's movements.
The App called 'Amego' sends an immediate notification if a child doesn’t arrive somewhere they should have or if they go beyond a sanctioned safe 'play zone'.
Amego displays a child’s location on a map so, if necessary, parents can quickly act to help them.
It's a neat way of giving you some peace of mind.
Bruce Morecome, whose son was 13-years-old when he was abducted on the Sunshine Coast in 2003, launched the App today.
