According to a study, almost half of parents admit to using devices to track their children.
About 49 percent use apps on their kids’ phones to keep tabs on them.
Those from London – 62 per cent – were the most likely to pursue their children, followed by Newcastle, Norwich and Brighton.
Parents in Manchester and Birmingham were least likely, says the survey by Spacetalk, which makes children’s smartwatches with GPS trackers.
Others admitted to following their descendants in disguise, participating in video game chats under assumed names, and checking online search histories.
One parent said: “The elder recently turned off the tracking app on his phone and I was absolutely furious.
“I didn’t know where he was for two hours and I was beside myself with worry.
“He let himself out when he got home and knows he shouldn’t do it again.
