Do you know where your kids are?
With all the kids out and about for summer, parents are turning to tech more and more to help keep track of them.
The most popular way, especially for older kids, is to give them a smartphone and have them check in as well as text pictures of where they are or even using tools like Facetime to check in.Some cell phones are able to be tracked online as well as checking locations of places you’ve been. Helpful services from your provider allow you to track your child’s cellphone and activities as well as many Apps available to assist. A cool one you may want to check out is MamaBear which features the ability for parents to customize the alerts for themselves and their child like sending an alert to parents of when their child arrives and departs a destination, quick check in with emoticon, emergency alerts and even alerting parents of speeding. Devices like the Trax Family are great for keeping informed of their whereabouts.
There are many apps out there like Amber Alert GPS which not only offers a great App for your child’s phone but devices for a child that may not have a cellphone. The device’s features include the ability to track your child’s location as well as two-way calling with the touch of a button for your child. Even if your child doesn’t go anywhere without you, they can wander and there’s tech to help with that too! Mommy I’m Here and Giggle Bug are just two of many adorable products available. Family Tracker and Family Locator may be worth a look in your App store as well. And for those of you with furry kids, they can get lost too. Check out products like Tagg and Pocket Finder for devices made especially for them. However you choose to keep track of your loved ones, we wish you all safe summer days … “Into Tomorrow“.
