School’s Out, Where Are Your Kids? This App Will Tell You…

School's out and the kids are at home? Or are they? When school was out for me as a kid, my parents still worked. So I was either at the house by myself or out doing things without them. And since my parents were super protective, they always wanted to know where I was every five minutes. Since there was no such thing as a smart phone back then, they had to resort to calling me every 10 minutes. But now there is a way better way to do things as parents. And that app is Life360.

Life360 is an amazing app that helps you check in with family from anywhere you are. With Life360, simply open the app and add people to circles. You also have the ability to add separate circles which allows you to organize your family members based on who you're with at any given time, and they can be short-term, like just while you're traveling together. After you finish that, you instantly see everyone in your private circle on the map.

The Life360 app allows you to see at a glance where your child is and quickly send a message to them. And because you set up your own private circles, there are no worries about check-ins being public!

You can also create shared “to-do lists” so you and your kids can keep on top of daily activities and chores – you can see when they’ve been completed! It gives parents the critical peace of mind they crave, while letting them give their kids a bit more independence. Plus the app is free so what is there to lose?

I highly suggest trying out Life360 this summer with your kids so you can have peace of mind while they are out playing!
