Baby Jaserick – Never Leave Your Child Behind

AppWatch

Whether we want to believe it or not, there are moments when some parents forget their child in their car or even in the house. This often happens when a parent is busy or has a million things on their mind. And if you’re a parent, you know that’s that majority of your time.

Well, there’s an app to make sure they prioritize what’s most important.

Baby Jaserick is an app created with the goal of helping to solve every parent’s biggest nightmare – leaving their kid behind. It features customized alarms and timed routes that help keep track of your loved ones, no matter what you have going on.

Let’s say you’re driving to the grocery store. Open the Baby Jaserick app, plug in your route, tap the picture of the child who’s in the car with you and hit “start.” When you get there, your alarm will sound and remind you that your kid is in the car with you.

You can customize the alarm to whatever will work best for you. You can record your own voice or the voice of your child, you can record a video, use custom EDM music or just regular alarm sounds. This results-based app will work with you to make sure no kid is ever left behind, giving you much-needed peace of mind.

You can also use Baby Jaserick for other activities during your day, like picking up your kid from school, taking them to dance class, or even waking Dad up from his deep slumber. It works for almost anything that requires the extra nudge or reminder.

You can learn more at babyjaserick.com or can download the Baby Jaserick app for free in the App or Google Play Store today.

Kidslox – Controlling the Amount of Time Your Child Spends in Front of a Screen

AppWatch

Children spend a significant amount of time looking at screens every single day. But do parents truly know the amount of time their children spend looking at their devices? Are they aware of the content that their children are viewing?

Luckily, this is where Kidslox comes into play.

Kidslox is a mobile application for iOS and Android that helps parents set boundaries about the number of times their kids spend in front of their mobile devices.

There are five main features:

  1. Instant lockdown mode
  2. Daily limit – this allows you to set an amount of time per day that the screen will be on
  3. Allows you to set a specific period of time for the device to be in lockdown mode
  4. Content filter which allows you to block over five million adult sites
  5. Restriction of specific apps

Kidslox is unique from other parental control software and applications in that it’s totally cross-platform. It functions universally on iOS and Android. You can control it on an iOS device from an Android and an Android device from iOS.

In addition, Kidslox uses a different approach to content filtering which doesn’t drain your battery, slow down the internet, or cost a lot of money for the device.

Kidslox also has a three-way toggle which is their almost patentable technology. This is where they define the device either in parent mode, child mode, or lockdown mode. It’s simple and intuitive and parents seem to think that it’s the best part. Kidslox also has individual app blocking on iOS devices.

Start managing your family’s screen time today by heading to kidslox.com or by visiting the Google Play or Appstore.

 

Will a Smart Watch Help Your Kid Learn Time Management?

It can be extremely difficult to teach kids good habits, that will help them later on in life, like time management. Seriously, in the busy world that we live in, even as an adult it can be hard to have good time management. So expecting kids to be able to develop that skill on their own isn’t really fair. A smart watch specifically for kids might be the perfect solution.

The Octopus watch by Joy started a Kickstarter campaign and has over $328,267 pledged of its $50,000 goal. This is the first smart watch for kids to teach them both good habits and the concept of time. On their Kickstarter page, the company states “Studies have shown that children under 8 years old don’t understand the concept of time, let alone remember what to do when a certain time rolls around. We have designed the first watch that helps them understand how parents expect them to use their time. We believe this will help children form good habits and help them to take responsibility for their actions.”

It has three purposes: to work as a watch, scheduler, and an assistant. Intended for children 3-8 years old, the watch helps kids and parents work together to maintain good habits and eventually develop a sense of independence and self-esteem. It shows the time paired with icons that represent an activity that goes with that time. For example, at 8:00 pm it might show an icon a person in bed, letting the child know it is bedtime. This makes it a clock that a child can actually comprehend by linking time to certain events. Over time, the clock face can change to help teach kids to read digital and analog.

Sick of power struggles with your kid? The scheduler allows parents to program certain visual reminders from their phone that can pop up on the kid’s watch. If you’ve ever tried to get a child to brush their teeth or do a chore at a certain time, then you know it can be a nightmare! At a certain age, children just love the thrill of power struggles, no matter how well-behaved they usually are.

It works as an assistant by helping parents prioritize expectations and stay consistent with daily routines. If you expect to get your kids into good habits, you must be too!

We think this is an interesting way to incorporate technology for young kids without being overbearing. There’s no games or messaging, but it is still a fun tool for kids. There are options for kids to be able to unlock virtual badges based on their progress.

Little Lost Note Children’s App

“Michelle is the Social Media & Client Coordinator with a passion for communication and the media. Having recently graduated with a degree in Mass Media, and a dream of one day becoming a broadcaster, Michelle brings a fresh take on all things news – technology, politics, and yes, even sports. Her love for people makes the job something she loves, which is obvious in all that she does for the studio.”

I’ve already talked about him a couple of times, but my little brother is my absolute world. It’s been so fun watching him grow up and mature, without having the responsibility of actually being a parent. Sure, I’ve had my fair share of babysitting duty, but I left the stinky diapers for my parents.

When Wesley and I are together, I love taking him to parks and reading books. However, when I’m working 40 hours a week and finishing up classes, there’s not a lot of time that I can totally devote to him. So when I am stuck on babysitting duty, sometimes it’s easier turn on a movie or let him play on my iPad.

I want Wes to watch educational shows (unlike sissy who drowns herself The Bachelor), and really play games that are entertaining PLUS a good tool for learning.

After researching a bunch of different apps, I found the Little Lost Note, which is a super-cute story. The Little Lost Note is a sweet story of a musical note that is looking for her instrument. Children who are playing the game get to follow her story by meeting friends, exploring the world, and making new discoveries. It is a uniquely designed app and is full of interactive, and aesthetically appealing fun! If you’d like to learn more about Little Lost Note, head to boxoffrogs.com today.
