    We had the system installed at a prison I worked at (system was installed never implemented), if a inmate needed to be located (medical, visitation, hearings etc.) it would be insistently be able to tell you his location like the kitchen, yard, chapel, library etc. it would also be able to be programed to tell you if the inmate was in an unauthorized location.

    There are a least two types of RFID devices, passive and active. Active devices have a battery and transmit a signal to receivers. Passive devices have a unique shape or design that reflects a correspondingly unique pattern when scanned with a RFID reader. These last a long time and do not need a battery. You could embed passive RFID chips in children at birth containing unique identification information. They could be read by readers the person walks through/near, or by a hand held scanner. These have the limitation that you must be in close proximity to a reader to track the child. They should last for life but may migrate to other parts of the body where readers might not pick them up as readily.

    To the original question, NO, if I had kids, I can't imagine allowing them to carry one of these around.

    Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.
