Families today often have very busy and sometimes conflicting schedules. With so much going on for both parents and their kids, it can be difficult to keep up with one another on a daily basis. A family locator app is an ideal tool to stay connected every day, as well as to provide safety and security for kids of all ages. Once the app is installed, it’s just a matter of selecting and tapping on the options to get the information that you want about each person in the family group. Let’s take a look at how the family locator app works:
See real time locations for each person
The location feature is perfect for parents who want to see where their children are at any given time throughout the day or night. All you have to do is simply select a specific family member, and then pull up their location via GPS, which will display on the map. This will be the family member’s current or last known location, and the time will also be indicated. Kids can also see where their parents are, giving them a sense of security. It’s important to ensure that the GPS location service is turned on in everyone’s phones so that their locations can be displayed.
See where family members have been
Parents can also follow up on their children’s locations throughout the day by using the location history feature. They can check up on where their teens where and what they may have been doing, and they can also make sure that their kids made it to certain destinations on time, like baseball practice, swim lessons, etc. While there may not be time to talk on the phone during the day, family members can at least quickly and easily take a look at where the others have been. It’s also a useful tool in building trust between parents and kids, since parents have the ability to verify if their children are telling the truth about the places that they’ve gone.
Chat with family members
The family chat feature allows everyone to communicate within a group text, as well as for individuals to text one on one with each other. It’s a great way to keep everyone in the loop about the plans for the day, and for kids to check in and parents to check up on who is doing what. Parents can check their child’s real time location, and then write them in the chat to ask questions, confirm plans, and much more.
Features designed to keep family members connected
Between work, school, social activities, and other obligations, parents and kids can find it hard to stay connected and keep one another informed throughout the day. Busy families need a smart, effective tool to communicate and check in with one another. A family locator app makes it possible for parents to know where their children are, and for kids to stay safe while they’re out and about.
