Spying on your kids?

FRAMINGHAM

There's a battle going on. Espionage and counterespionage between parents and kids. And it's gotten even more complex with technology, according to a story in the Nashua Telegraph.

The story includes a mention of ULocate Communications, a GPS tracking company founded by Alan Phillips in Framingham that is used by multiple cell-phone carriers to track kids.

It also discusses the Hopkinton High School Web site, which can allow parents to see that a student scored a poor grade on a test, even before he or she reaches home.
