Verizon has their ‘Family Locator’ package available for parents (and spouses) who want to keep tabs on their loved (and untrusted) ones easily through a web or smartphone interface.

It’s freaking awesome. Without “watching” and checking on your family, you can simply setup specific areas for specific dayparts for specific people. So, you can define your child’s school (down to a 1/4 mile area) for the house of 8:30 to 3:30 each weekday. Once your child arrives in that location, you can receive a confirmation of arrival each morning. Likewise, you’ll be notified when they leave that area each day. Any movement outside their scheduled location will also trigger an alert, allowing you to figure out what is going on quickly and easily.
