Following the distraught of the coronavirus pandemic, many individuals realized that everything isn’t quite set in stone. Many individuals were caught entirely off guard and realized that after all’s said and done, who else do you have to fall back on except for family. The virus turned our whole world upside down, and most of us still feel the uncertainty it reaped within our society. Schools shut down for record-breaking lengths, and our children didn’t know what to do with themselves. This is, unfortunately, one downside in developing the technology that we have in the modern era. 

Children know how to play games on phones before they’ve been taught how to read or write. With this massive advance in technology, we’re also given a responsibility to ensure our children use it for nothing more than what it was intended for. We need to find new ways of checking up and securing our loved ones’ safety, and we need new ways to monitor and understand what goes on in our homes; luckily, this is where technology gives parents an upper hand. Let’s look at four ways which you can use to secure your and your children’s safety. 

#1 Security Systems 

Start with having a state-of-the-art security system installed, and this will ensure that you can keep your teens safe in your home without even being there. Many instances arise where parents need to attend meetings and other appointments, but it’s just not possible to bring your child. With modern-age security systems, you can be assured that your home won’t be compromised, and your child will be kept safe at all times. It doesn’t mean you can leave your children unattended most of the time, but you do have some peace of mind if an emergency arises. 

#2 Securing Cell Phones 

The technology regarding our cellphones and computers is a worrying factor for many parents. This has been discussed and debated for years as technology rapidly grew to where it is now. Children with cellphones can instantaneously find any information they search for; for some, this might be a huge concern. Luckily innovative companies have realized this threat to society and started combating the issue. If your child’s safety regarding their cell phone bothers you, maybe download Family Orbit and see if the control over what your child is exposed to gives you some peace of mind. 

#3 Tech Trackers 

For the ultimate safety precautions, it might be a great initiative to track your child’s whereabouts daily. This gives you control through knowing your teen’s location with the click of a button on your phone. This will allow you to keep your child safe and know when they’re not where they said they’ll be. 

Irrespective of where you stay or what you do, you can never be too safe and too cautious. Prepare yourself for the worst and be ready when your child needs you, you’ll never be more grateful that you were prepared for it.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
