Any mother who has children can tell you that parenting isn’t an easy task. There are a lot of hardships that come with raising a child like trying to get a picky eater to chow down on vegetables or potty training a toddler. But, the advantage parents have nowadays is technology. There are several ways technology has been making motherhood easier, and here are five examples:
Five Ways Technology Can Make Motherhood Easier
Stay in contact with teens
Monitoring a rambunctious teenager takes a lot of energy, but thanks to certain apps, keeping track of your teen’s actions is a lot simpler. There are some apps that can even track your teen’s whereabouts. Teens can also call their parents when they’re out to let them know when they’ll be home.
Potty training made simple
One of the best moments for a mother is finally teaching a toddler to use the bathroom. Before, potty training was a difficult task, but now, there are apps that can make potty training as easy as 1-2-3. There’s one app, in particular, that recruits the help of Elmo to show kids the ropes. The way the app works is that it teaches children the fundamentals of potty-training through fun songs.
Aides in learning
Getting your child interested in school seems like an impossible challenge, but thanks to the advances in technology, it’s never been easier. There are a multitude of educational apps available that will trick your child into learning by using games that seem like pure fun. Learning becomes easier when your kids think they’re playing a game, not learning multiplication.
One of the most difficult things to do is entertain a bored child. Well, when your child is bored, like on a road trip or waiting for the doctor on his/her annual check-up, technology can come to the rescue. Since tablets and phones are portable, you can entertain your child whenever it’s needed. All you have to do is download some fun apps and you’re good to go.
Keep track of chores with ease
Getting a child to do his chores can cause parents to pull their hair out. Luckily, there are some apps that can get your child interested in cooperating around the house. Advancements in app UI design have made it increasingly easy for children to use technology. For starters, one app lets kids get points for every chore they do. Then, the more points a child earns, the more prizes he/she gets.
Thanks to the advances of technology, motherhood, at times, has become a lot simpler. What technology has helped you through motherhood??
