Today Verizon announced an update to its Chaperone parental tools. The service allows parents to track the whereabouts of their children with Verizon's phones. It can now provide turn-by-turn directions in VZ Navigator to the child's location. Parents can also get the location of multiple childrens' phones at the same time. It also allows parents to set up SMS alerts and other notifications when their children leave predetermined zones where they are allowed to be. Verizon also added usage controls, so parents can set limits for voice minutes used per month, test messages sent/received per month, and how much can be spent on games, ringtones or other content. Chaperone 2.0 costs $10 per line and the usage controls cost $5 per month.

Sounds like a great idea. I have customers asking for this all the time. Sprint needs to come out with this as well.
