    Like any mom, I worry when it comes to my kid's safety. Choking and child molestation are my two biggest fears. And since there's no real way to tell if someone is a molester or not, I've decided that the best way to protect my daughter is to have her registered to SafeKidZone. It's a panic button service installed on my daughter's phone that whenever she's in trouble she will just press it and it will simultaneously alert her loved ones and the 24/7 call center that she needs help and if needed, the call will be routed to the nearest 911 in her area. You can visit their site and you will find more of their interesting features
