Peace of mind can be defined in the following way: absence of mental stress or anxiety, and the presence of serenity, calm, quiet, comfort of mind. This is something that we all want and something that we all need. Without peace of mind there can be a large disconnect between the things that really matter and the things that our anxiety chooses to focus on leaving us disjointed and out of balance.
One example of this might be how a GPS device for children can help us get back to thinking about how to be a better parent.
To be honest, the threat of our child being abducted by someone who is looking to do them bodily harm is very, very low. The vast majority of child abductions occur in custody cases where an estranged father or mother is so distraught over loosing visitation rights or of having “insufficient” visitation rights that they choose to override the courts judgment and take custody of the child themselves. They don’t want to hurt the child, they just want to be with them.
In addition to that, the amount of press that child abductions receive is misleading in that they can place the thought of your child being stolen from you on the forefront of your mind for months and months when again, the chances of it happening are very slim indeed.
Yet despite the objective truth that the chances of our child being taken by a serial rapist, murderer, or pedophile is extremely low we still feel a great level of concern about it. The fact is, our children are much, much more likely to die in car accidents or because of leukemia than they are to be taken from our grasps. Yet we fear an abduction much more because it is very scary, very unknown, and very uncontrollable.
A kids GPS can take some of these factors away and put our minds back at ease. It does this by taking away the element of time from a potential assailant. If your child is late getting home or goes outside the prescribed boundaries of their GPS unit you will know it and you will be able to act immediately.
Not only will you be able to act immediately, but you will be able to act with the exact location of where your child is in mind. Not only will you know that your child is missing, but you will be able to know where they are missing at – empowering you and the police to rescue your child from the hands of evil. The fear is taken away, so is not knowing where your child is, and control is put back into your hands.
Chances are you will never need a to use yoru child’s GPS device. But if you are experiencing some fear and anxiety about it, then you might want consider getting a GPS device for your son or daughter. It is really up to you.
