And the question is who are we as parents doing that? Dr. Lisa Masterson: We have some spy gadgets and let me go through up a few of them. This one in the first one is called, Spark Nano Tracker, and what you do is you stick in the car and you hide it under the seat, and when the teen gets home, you can check it. And look about the things you can find about it, you can find out the speed that your teen was going, you can find out whether or not, they slammed on the brakes, and you can watch live online to actually see where your child is. You can actually follow them. Dr. Jennifer Berman: I think you get a monitor. How many times he passes gas and how’s the value or -- Dr. Lisa Masterson: No, we’re not.
