When you are a parent you have been given the greatest gift that carries with it the great responsibility. It is hard to imagine that such an important thing like a human life does not even come with a set instructions! As most parents, we all raise our kids with trial and error, advice from family and friends, information from books and a million other resources. Although you may not get those instructions, you do get a keen ability to be able to keep up with your child virtually at all times. Even if my kids do not tell me where they are I somehow seem to still know where to find them. For my kids, that is pretty easy as they are too young to drive, so Henry will probably be on the trampoline and Caitlin in her room listening to music. With my older daughter who lives 3 hours away, it is not as easy to keep tabs on her. With the incredibly cool app from Life360, I can stay connected with family and friends easily.
Stay Connected With Family And Friends
If you are unfamiliar with Life360, it is a very clever way to stay connected with family and friends via your mobile device. All you need to do is download the app for your Apple or Android device, create an account and invite folks to join one of your circles. You can create a circle for your family, friends, co-workers, church group or any other group you want to keep up with. I love the convenience of locating people by my circles because it is easier for me to keep up with them that way. You have the flexibility of deciding when you want to share you location and with who, which I really like as well. You do not need to worry about people seeing where you are and who you have in your circle because only those people in a circle can see each others circles and locations.
I recently had surgery on my shoulder and I did not want to post something on FB to let everyone know when I was home. Instead, I shared my location and sent a message (I am here and will be going in shortly) with my close family and friends. When I was home, I had my husband send a message (Kelly is home and sleeping. Everything went great) and change our location to our home. What a much more private way to convey this information to my loved ones than to shout it out in a blanket social media message! Joining Life360 is completely free, is easy and fun to use and can keep those people in your life who are important to you, close to you. You can stay current with the latest Life 360 news, you can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.
