4 Must-Have Apps For All Parents

As a parent, you have a great deal of responsibility. You have to make sure that your kids are healthy. You have to make sure that you’re teaching them the right things and that they’re growing up to be responsible.

Sometimes, it’s hard to remember everything or know all the answers, and thankfully, you have apps for your mobile device that can help.

From chores to potty training and everything in between, these are four apps that every parent should have.

1. iHomeopathy

A sick child is not fun, and as a parent, you want to make sure that you are taking care of all of their aches and pains. When it comes to first aid, you need iHomeopathy. You can use it to enter in symptoms your child is experiencing and determine what illness they may have. Everything from the flu to common allergens are listed in the app, and if you want to keep your child healthy, this is a great app to have on hand.

With this app, you can also find the correct dosage amount for certain medications to give your child depending on age and weight. You can even find out how often your child can take a specific medication and for how long.

2. Babyphone

Baby monitors can be expensive, and depending on where you live, you may not be able to travel far with your monitor before hearing static. Babyphone is an app that works as a baby monitor directly through your phone.

When your child wakes up, Babyphone will call your house phone (or other number you delegate)  to alert you that your child is awake. You can even set the sensitivity meter to alert you if your baby were to move or make the smallest noise.

3. Potty Chart

Potty training can be difficult, but you may be able to lessen the nuisance with PottyChart. This app uses a reward system to encourage your child to go to the bathroom on the toilet.

If you’re using sticker charts at home, you can use the app as a sticker chart for when your child uses the bathroom out of the house. If you aren’t using the star chart, you can with this app. All you have to do is set the number of stars and pick an image to reward them when they’ve reached the right number of stars. The app is so easy to use that  your child can add their own stars when they go to the bathroom.

You can even keep track of potty training milestones, such as the date they started and other notes. And you can even access tips to help make potty training easier on you and your child. It will even make a water running sound if your child is too nervous to go when it’s quiet.

4. Chore Bank

Keeping track of your child’s allowance can be tricky, but ChoreBank can help. Create a virtual bank account for your children and a list of chores. Next to each chore will be a value, and when a child completes the chore, the amount will be added to their bank account. This way, you know how much money they’ve earned in real time.

You can make extra deposits or withdrawals as necessary, an duo can even assign an interest rate to teach them how saving is important.
