Apps That All Parents Should Have


Nowadays most of us are relying on our mobile phones for pretty much everything and although some people may see this as a bad thing, technology of today certainly has its benefits, one of which is the ability to get things quickly and easily - such as if we get lost somewhere, we can pretty quickly open up Google Maps and find our way, or we can check the weather forecast for the next 7 days without having to wait until the evening news broadcast.

When it comes to apps, especially, there’s literally an app for everything, and if you’re a parent, then you’re going to find some of these apps to be must-have ones when trying to raise a family.

ChatterBlock:

This is an especially good app for those of you who are looking for fun things to do with your kids on a regular basis in your local area. So whether it’s planning a family day out or looking for a new class or something of interest that you and your child can do together and also meet new people, then ChatterBlock is a must-have app. Not only does it help you find things going on in the local area, but it also sends you notifications when it finds something in your area that you might like and sends you event reminders because life can be busy when you’re a parent and it can be easy to forget things.

Family Orbit:

When your child is older and starting to ask for things like their own phone, then one of the main concerns you likely have as a parent is the safety issue that comes with this, so one way to deal with this is by installing an app like Family Orbit on your child’s phone that allows you track their phone. Now, it’s important to remember that installing software like these is something you should be doing only with your child’s knowledge and not behind their back - it should be a condition of getting a phone, but if you do it without them knowing, you could majorly damage your relationship by violating their trust and privacy.

Chore Bank:

As your children get older, then teaching them the value of money and also personal responsibility is something that should be happening, and one of the best ways to go about this is through having them do certain chores for which they receive pocket money. Chore Bank is an app that’s been designed to track all of this and keep all of the information on who’s done what and how much they’ve earned in one place, which can be great for keeping them motivated as they see the money build up.

DisneyWorld Wait Times:

If you’re ever planning a trip to Disney with your children, then you know that one of the major downsides of visiting such a theme park is the massive wait times for the rides, so if you want to be prepared as much as possible, then download this app that lets you see the current waiting times for each ride so you can plan your day without standing in line.
