I am sure that your question will raise much comment on this forum. I am aware that the technology for microchipping pets does exist and is used in this country.I am not aware of microchipping being used for children and even if such a system is available here.Even mentioning the possibility of microchipping children will raise all sorts of questions and in particular whether we should even contemplate going down this route.Rather keep track of where your children are by yourself and teach them not to speak to strangers.
