How can we make it easier for people to help each other?

An app that places a GPS tracker on the teenagers phone so parents can track where they are if they says they are in other places. The aim is to prevent underage drinking in local communities. If a parent finds out their child is drinking they can alert the police to the specific area using GPS. It would help the local community and the neighbourhood the teenagers are living in. It will make the neighbourhood safer for children, giving peace of mind to the parents. You could create a tracking device (GPS tracker) so parents can check if their children are on the streets when they say they are elsewhere. The parents would download this app onto their Smartphone’s so they can keep an eye on their children. They would maybe tell their children about the app so it would prevent the teenagers from doing it again.

    Very helpful idea, wonder what teenagers think of this!

    Most teenagers would probably still drink but what they have got to think about is the damage that they could be doing to their body like their liver for example if they ignore the app and carry on drinking their liver could fail and they could die as a result. I think this app could save lots of teenagers' lives

    Great idea however very impractical and near on impossible. GPS systems only allow for location data to be tracked and nothing else. There is absolutely no way for the parent to tell if the child is drinking or is just hanging around with friends.

    How do you plan on telling the difference based purely on GPS data?
