A mom’s “peace” of mind.
It’s hard sending your child off to college; it’s even harder sending them 15 hours away. We live in Naples, FL and our daughter attends college in Virginia so when we decided to provide her with a car at college every uneasy thought went through my mind. This Florida girl had never driven in bad weather, in the hills, or with deer crossing the roads when you least expect it. Nor had she ever made a 15-hour road trip.
We need to let our children live, learn and explore. We need to give them wings, or in this case a car. As a mother I know she is responsible, smart and a good driver, but….
Sure I worry; however, I have a secret weapon to provide some peace of mind. We installed a GPS tracking device in her car (with our daughter’s knowledge). We can now see where her car is at all times by simply logging onto our computer.
Recently our daughter made the 15-hour trip from Virginia to Naples for the holidays. She left Virginia in the afternoon, which meant she would be driving through the night. We were able to keep track of her the whole way. We could see her speed, her location and the stops she made. Yes, we could have called her to get these updates but we wanted her to be safe so distracting her with a phone call is not ideal especially while she was driving in the rain and in the dark. The best part, I knew the moment she was turning into the driveway so I could run outside to welcome her home and give her a hug.
There are many advantages to a tracking device, you can track your vehicle’s maintenance, you can set up alerts to detect driving over the speed limit, and of course you can track the vehicle if it were stolen. All very important and valuable, but to a mom, there is nothing more important than knowing where your child is and that they are safe. Whether she is driving 15 hours or 15 minutes I have the ability to know where she is. I have that peace of mind when I can’t be with her.
I hate to think of a time when this technology wasn’t available (my parents just worried), but fortunately I don’t have to. I know that I have this “secret weapon” available to me now and I don’t plan to go without it.
