Parents are always worried about the safety and well being of their kids. Specially in the environment like this, parents are always trying to keep an eye on their kids and stay connected with them at all times. To achieve this purpose, Smart Phones are being used but sometimes they are on Silent mode or the battery drains out and the phone dies which leave parents worried and can cause issues with children as well in case they need to contact their parents.
